Review for American Jewish World Service, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

I donated money for their Horn of Africa hunger relief program. This triggered an endless barrage of mail solicitations, phone calls and emails from them. I have reason to believe that they also shared my contact information with other charities. I've made multiple requests to remove my contact information from their lists to no avail.

Review for Human Rights Watch, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

Donated to HRW 6 months ago. This started a stream of emails, mailings and phone calls. Never wanted to be on their mailing list nor to be contacted. Despite multiple requests by email and over the phone, they still contact me to solicit donations. It's also become clear that they shared my information with other charities. Is this "doing good by being sleazy"?
