Review for COALITION TO SALUTE AMERICAS HEROES, Leesburg, VA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I have just received at least my fifth request for a donation from this charity, mailed under the aegis of Maj. Gen. John K. Singlaub, and including as usual a $1 bill. I have repeatedly asked them to remove my name from their mailing list, to no avail. I am a relatively low-income retiree, have been giving more than I can afford to worthy causes for years, and simply cannot afford to add yet another. I also object strongly to the dollar bill inclusion as a blatant use of "moral force" to try to coerce a reply, return of their cash plus a healthy contribution! I would add that I'm concerned they may be taking in an undue amount of money because they are playing on the public's sympathy for veterans, and this is a powerful draw.
