Seriously, a couple of years ago at a friend’s funeral, “in lieu of flowers”, I made a $20 donation to a reasonably well-known, highly regarded charity. Since that time, about every other month I receive solicitations from them asking for an additional donation. Many of these solicitations contain personalized return-address stickers and/or note paper, greeting cards, etc. I am pretty sure that by now they have spent the majority of my original $20 on the cost of printing all the “stuff”, as well as all the postage to send it to me, with almost nothing being used to help the people they claim that they want to help. As a result, I would never ever consider giving them another dime!
