Since shortly after I received a diagnosis of breast cancer, my husband began receiving calls from "Breast Cancer Relief Foundation" for donations. The first year my husband did donate to this "charity" and then began receiving constant calls from other "charities" that are part of this groups "Network" Children's Cancer Dream Foundation among others. These calls became so frequent that I finally asked them to stop calling !
Once I began turning down their requests for donations, they began calling with their number "masked" or using fake numbers ( those which you cannot connect with if you try calling back) and insisting on speaking to "Mr.Dennis" (my husbands first name) and stating they're calling from "Public Appeal" inferring that they're with a public opinion poll and not giving the true nature of the call until I pressed the issue ! After receiving 4 calls this week alone, and returning a "Pledge" slip from the "Childrens Cancer Dream Network" for a donation, I've again instructed them, once again to take us OFF their "Tap a Sap" (my term) list and STOP CALLING .... after finding out from Guide Star that only 1 or 2 cents of each donated dollar actually goes to "assist" cancer patients, we will NEVER donate to them or their affiliates again.... Thanks for the info
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
take away their "Tax Exempt" status and make sure that any current assets in their coffers actually be donated to the Charities they pretend to support !
