A few weeks ago I received a mailing like the kind you would get once you have offered money. I knew I had not made a donation promise, so I threw it away. The next week I received a call from the charity reminding me that I promised to make an annual contribution. I asked them the date of my last donation. The solicitor said I last gave in July. I said I wanted to make an annual donation and that if I had given in July then it was too early for another donation. Then the solicitor told be the previous donation was July of 2011. This was a LIE, but I did not discover it until after I promised a small donation. When I went back to my records I discovered that my last contribution was made THIS July. I am sending the donation this time in the hopes that it will actually do some good, but I have my doubts. I will no longer be making any contributions to this charity.
