Well, when I did a reverse lookup on the phone number, it came up as unknown... if this were a legitimate charity, I would imagine that it would have its own phone number listed. If it is a church, why does the phone number not come up to the church in question...

There are a lot of people who use the anonymity of the internet to scam other people in to donating money to them, and the money goes into their pockets...rather than to the cause they say they support. Whether you're asking for cash or for used/damaged sails, it costs people money to donate... at a minimum, whatever the shipping costs on the goods would be... so I tend to be a bit cynical about charities that have unlisted numbers.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
