I get many calls and had agreed on a small donation amount. What I noticed is that the return envelopes and the bills for payment all resemble each other and all come from Michigan. They always want me to use my debit card or credit card and I refuse and ask for a bill to be mailed to me. I've spent several hours scanning the Internet and have decided that none of these organizations including Foundation for American Veterans are legitimate enough to warrant any more of my money. I suspect they all sit in the same room while making their calls. There are enough local charities in my community that I should have no trouble finding a charity of choice and give to them. From now on when I see an 877, 866, etc area code, I'm not answering my phone. I had an unlisted number and was wondering why I still get so many calls and the callers having my name. I found out that the phone company (Suddenlink) sells their listings and they do not screen out unlisted numbers. Not happy about that. So, heads up for those in doubt - hang up and give locally.
