Let's say they do contribute. They don't, but let's say they do. Then they should simply shut the *Censored* up and carry on with what they're doing without "calling out" Notre Dame-donators. If big French company owners want to help restore a French monument in Notre Dame, regardless of how it "helps people", they should not be vilified for it or get told to do something about some *censored*ed up town in a country that has nothing to do with them, if they don't want to do that. I'd go back to saying that those that do that, are more concerned with looking good than the causes they're bringing up.

It's their money. If you want those amounts of money to go to people who actually need it or whatever, then get rich like them and do it yourself.

Besides, you know...all the wealthy people who do donate to causes like hunger and homelessness. I mean...there is a lot of that already. It doesn't end just because other people donate to restoring a landmark.

 

I feel like the cathedral shouldn't have any government funded repairs, and I could totally understand people getting pissy about the French government paying for it. But...that's not even what these people are up in arms about. They're trying to say that the landmark isn't worth saving just because there are other problems...and that's a load of shit. That's "an eye for an eye" 101. That's how you burn the world down...

Not really, and also kinda depends because people are now wondering why the wealthy aren't helping Sudan or Yemen when they were all too happy to give millions of dollars to Notre Dame.

And as it turns out now, they aren't helping Notre Dame either, so everybody wins.

Unless Austin has his facts wrong. But I never doubt Austin.

Austin also said 10%, so they did help Notre Dame somewhat. What happened to that money, then?

I don't see how, but you're missing the point.

The gist of is that the debating on the donations became pointless when most of them didn't even donate. I don't give a shit about 10% when a whopping 90% isn't going to do shit. I'm defending funds that weren't given.

That 10% isn't even from the wealthy French billionaires representing multinationals that have been criticized in this debate. It came from legitimate charity organizations, loads of them American even. Random generous donators. And you can't be mad at regular Joe's donating to a worthy cause.

I first said there's no point in debating it as a light-hearted comment as the lack of actual donations made me feel like I've wasted my time a bit, but having looked into it, there really isn't a point.

Until they actually do start donating, but as I've read, they won't pay a cent until they're satisfied with how the money will be used when the rebuilding stage has already started and when they already need help paying the workers.

When they do that, then there's a point. Now, the debate is basically dead.

I was joking... but not about the fate of the rest of the money. Wonder if the 90% went back to the wealthy "donors" somehow.

Yeah, sucks when you do a throwaway-comment and someone else makes a whole thing about it, doesn't it?

Either way, the 90% is still with the elite French squad, they've pledged to it, but haven't actually donated any of it. Like I just said what happened.
