I am angry at the solicitation tactics of this organization. The person who initially spoke with me asked me if I wanted to donate $30 as I had in the past. I said yes, but then went back and checked all my records (my husband donates sometimes, when solicitors call for me). I had NEVER donated. When I went to my online account to make out the donation, I noticed that there was no Children's Cancer Fund of America set up as a recognized payee--but that there was a Children's Cancer RESEARCH Fund. The names are very close--but NOT the same. I have received two letters since then; tonight I left a message as to my doubts of their legitimate purpose at the "personal donor page" they have set up for me.
