Are any of you getting hounded by charities when you've already sent in a donation...like less than a month ago? There are several charities Mr. Lane and I contribute to every year. One of them is the American Cancer Society. We made our annual contribution. One week later, we got another notice from them asking for a contribution. Well, ok, maybe our check and their letter crossed in the mail. Another letter came from them about 5 days later THANKING us for our contribution...and also enclosed was ANOTHER REQUEST for more money. Since then and now--which has been about 2 months--I've received 4 more requests for donations. One just yesterday.
I think it's a worthy charity, but I think they are being really obnoxious--and it makes me not want to give them any more. The American Lung Association sent me a thank you note and that was that. I haven't heard from them since I made my donation five months ago. I expect to hear from them in about another 7 months asking for our annual donation. Why can't they all be like that? Or send them out 2x or even 4x a year. But stop hounding me every other week!!!
