I convinced coworkers to join me in sending donations to CARE after a horrific natural disaster in the early 2000's. After that, the solicitations started coming...and coming...and coming. I tried to get off their mailing lists: via phone, snail mail, email...repeatedly. My coworkers were aggravated in the same way. It took years, not "4-8 weeks," and then finally the mailings stopped. Or so I thought. Some time passed, and I just got another solicitation. I used to work in the field of nonprofit development. It is not that difficult to record such donor wishes in a database system. CARE deserves this negative review.
