Received a solicitation mail from WWP INC. yesterday. Came with a cutesy key chain/dog tag freebie - MADE IN CHINA. Pfffftt! How hard would it be for WWP to finbd an AMERICAN source for these gimmicks??? Did our troops lose limbs for China or the USA?

HELP HOSPITALIZED VETERANS
July 13, 2011

Out of the blue, I got a big envelope in the mail from HHV. I looked intently, at the envelope, before ever opening it. What struck me as odd was that NO WHERE on the arriving envelope, was there the name of the "charity" or even a return address. But it had all sorts of officius-looking statements and identified the wife and I as "A Donor of the Year"

Wow! Donor of the Year.............. for what??? There's also an official tracking code and a reply-by date AS WELL AS the promise of a commemorative certificate and a sweepstakes elegibility entry notice! Wow again, eh? But not a clue as to who it was that was being so generous towards us. Naturally, I couldn't get the thing ripped open fast enough!
Out tumbled the requisite donation/sweepstakes for as well as an EARLY BIRD bonus drawing certificate and a large flyer describing the prizes you'll be sure to have a snowball's chance of winning if you contributre to their supposed cause.

This outfit just SMELLS bad. The slick come-on, the Award as a donor of the year - when I swear I['ve never given them a dime! The phony gold-sticker'd seal on the frameable certificate (says it's "frameable" - right on the back. But then, so's a potato chip bag!)

I imagine if you're one of the lucky few Vets that get something from this scam scheme, they probably look great. But the smell that wafts out of their giant envelope.

If you're soliciting for a great cause - which I concede, veterans would qualify as - wouldn't you want prospective donors to know that at a glance? BEWARE the "Help Hospitalized Veterans" institution. Better yet, go find a veteran and do something nice for them. Your money will actually GET to them that way!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Thru a review of ONE recipient of their mission's goal.

Ways to make it better...

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

Fire self-serving, Mike Lynch, and give him a lynching for the fat salary he and his staff give themselves.

How did you learn about this organization?

Got their solicitation in the mail. And I'd NEVER sent them a donation before - even tho they were thanking me for doing so. By the way, our last name is SO uncommon that there was no way they'd made a simple mistake in addressing.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I spent time investigating this "charity".
