Janesville has many worthy causes seeking donations, and we applaud those willing to open their hearts and wallets to these calls.

Why, then, should you consider donating to one of the latest such causes, the YWCA Fix the Flats project? Because it’s a chance to help protect a unique piece of Janesville’s historic architecture and to help mothers who, with their children, are trying to rebuild their lives after fleeing domestic violence.

Shelly Birkelo reported on this story Friday. Click here to read an account and details about how to help. To be honest, online comments about that story were disappointingly negative. I hope more understanding readers weigh in here.

We’ll share our thoughts and perspectives in our editorial Wednesday.
