I have been supporting the Alzheimer's Association with annual monetary contributions the past few years. Lately, they have been calling me repeatedly at dinner time soliciting me to mail letters to my friends asking them to contribute to their organization. When I explained to them that my current job, family, and civic responsibilities don't afford me any remaining discretionary time, they would not take my "no" for an answer and said that they would send me a letter writing packet. That's it!! I'm done with this organization. They will get no more contributions from me and I will block their telephone number. Let their CEO, who makes $550,000 a year, mail out letters to his friends and contribute some of his cash to their cause.
