I think this charity does good works. The Walmart Foundation lists them as a longstanding partner, and they seem to get good marks from charity rating organizations. But they spend FAR too much money on mailings soliciting donations. Even if you are already signed up as a regular monthly donor, you will get several solicitations a month to try to get you to send more. And their website gives you the option to opt-out of emails, but to opt-out of postal mailings, you have to call an 800 number (adding more overhead to them and inconvenience to you). I mull over the possibility of pulling my donations from time to time, but so far I think the good they do is enough to keep me giving.
