I'm getting more and more of the soliciations from charitable organizations that have the pre-printed address labels inside, with a note saying "how can 5 cents save a child's life?"
I am a huge advocate of donating to charitable organizations. I donate to MANY organizations constantly, at least a dozen or more constantly throughout the year.
But it really upsets me when they send me a nickel stating how 5 cents can save a child's life.
Then why are you sending me 5 cents?!!!!
Use it towards the fund to actually go to the children!!!
Don't use it as a method of guilt or guilt-extortion!!!
That's really low to do in the name of saving children!!!
This form of marketing should be stopped. It's absolutely awful, and makes NO sense whatsoever to me.
