Suggestions: Pro And Con On Seasonal Donations

I was sent this through e-mail and somehow managed to copy and paste it here.. The print and presentation leave a lot to be desired, but the message is very clear “some charities are much more charitable than others”..

Happy Holidays to all,

Jake.

good, please keep the following facts in mind:

    Makes me happy to give to the Salvation Army bell ringers.

  2. I feel the same way YS, in fact, if I hear of a store that won’t allow them at their storefront I won’t shop there. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  3. Salvation Army and disabled vets my choices and I do support a Christian ministry in Romania.

  4. May your charity will be repaid a thousand fold.
