My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American National Red Cross, Washington, DC, USA
I gave blood. The Red Cross then gave my private information to a teleservices company. I receive multitudes of phone calls soliciting donations and blood. It is so many that it feels like harassment. My requests to be removed from the call list have gone ignored. It angers me that donated money is wasted on phone banks. It angers me as a donor that my private information is being used inappropriately.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I donate blood twice. Now--I get harassing phone calls.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Stop phone solicitation all together. It wastes funds. It angers donors.
