Review for CHILDRENS CANCER FUND OF AMERICA, Mesa, AZ, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I am angry at the solicitation tactics of this organization. The person who initially spoke with me asked me if I wanted to donate $30 as I had in the past. I said yes, but then went back and checked all my records (my husband donates sometimes, when solicitors call for me). I had NEVER donated. When I went to my online account to make out the donation, I noticed that there was no Children's Cancer Fund of America set up as a recognized payee--but that there was a Children's Cancer RESEARCH Fund. The names are very close--but NOT the same. I have received two letters since then; tonight I left a message as to my doubts of their legitimate purpose at the "personal donor page" they have set up for me.

Review for FOUNDATION FOR AMERICAN VETERANS, W Bloomfield, MI, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was very upset when I received the information through the mail. I had spoken at length with the man who initiated the donation: I wanted him to guarantee that my money would go to Montana vets. He promised, told me to go to the Attorney General's for proof of the organization's credibility, etc. THEN the letter from Michigan comes, and yes, it is virtually the same packaging as several other telephone calling organizations have used. If I want to donate to a Montana vet, I will go to Fort Harrison over Christmas break and see what I can do LOCALLY.

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Badly
