See how ridiculously easy it is. I admit, the site was pretty difficult to negotiate through in the past. But not now. It’s so easy a caveman could do it.*
So, I don’t wanna hear about how hard it is. If you don’t want to donate, say so. Don’t blame the site.
Someone broke into a storage shed at DeJure Formal Wear, 3204 N. University, and stole $16,00 worth of wedding dresses and shoes and an additional $15,000 in lighting. Then the thief of someone who knows him or her tried to sell it in the street.
