AmeriCares Foundation, Inc.
November 8, 2011
Americares is so bad they make me afraid to donate to anyone. I received a mailing from them where they promised to only contact me once a year, and I looked up their financials, they seemed pretty good so I donated. Biggest.mistake.ever. They have proceeded to contact me weekly for the past year, continually hitting me up for more donations despite the fact I have contacted them 10 separate times to tell them to stop contacting me that I will never give them another penny ever they keep mailing. It's ridiculous. When I look at their reported amount of fundraising it doesn't seem possible, so I suspect that there may be something funny up with how they report the money they spend because they certainly were dishonest with me.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
repeated harassement for more money
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
change it so they don't hit up people constantly especially after they made repeated attempts to ask them to stop.
