And how much does this compare to Christmas? Most of my Christmas ornaments are reusable, and I simply add a few to freshen things up or to replace lost or damaged ones. The money you spend on gifts is spent on something worthwhile, and you get fun for the money (and, in most families, tends to circulate as gift-giving is often two-way). If you spend money on toys for the kids, there is a good chance you will be spending that much less on toys during the next few months. Plus they get the benefit of the items.
Compare: When you give to the washtowel, that money provides damnation for the whole human race, helping communism win the final war through psychic power. You get no fun from doing this, and the money never recirculates or reduces what you will need to spend next month. And none will be reusable--instead, you need to keep wasting the money anew week after week.
As the leaders are supposed to be the prime exemplars, let them trust in joke-hova. They ask the congregation and members therein to do that when times are tough and funds do not come, yet they themselves refuse to do the same. If joke-hova really cares about them, let that thing provide for them, not through stealing funds from members. And let the children go back to eating ice cream cones when they feel like it.
