Help the Children
June 7, 2011

I have contributed to Help the Children over the years. Today 6-7-11, I received a packet from MilitaryFamily Assistance Pak containing two personalized photo albums and more return address lables than I will use all year. A letter therein said they hadn't heard from me in a long time and wondered why I haven't contributed to their organization lately. In checking my records, I find I have sent a donation each of the first three months of this year. The amounts are not great, but I have other charities to support as well.
One thing I do not approve of is being sent items I don't need and didn't request. I am unaware what it costs to maket these "gifts" and mail them, but whatever the cost, I don't lile my donations to help a child being spent on such junk.
Inasmuch as I have charities with a much greater need for my donations to help our returning disabled military personel, I am returning your packet with its contents and asking you to remove my name from your mailing list.

I have not experienced the serevices of this organization.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

alter its policy to prohibit mailing gifts to doners exceeding an occassional return address lable.

General Member of the Public & I am only a contributer.
