Last year when we received a packet claiming that my 85 year old husband had agreed to write letters for ADA's Community Campaign, I sent it back with a letter explaining that he had not volunteered and requesting that they take us off their list. This year we received another packet! We refused delivery. My husband is now getting letters reminding him of his (non-existent) promise. I will try writing them once more but do not intend to contribute again, There are many other charities that do not rely on these tactics and pay attention to donor requests. BTW, my husband has Parkinson's and can barely write; I have severe arthritis in my hands.
