Dear Charitable Organizations

Please, please, please stop sending me address labels. I have more than I can ever use in my lifetime. They are going straight to the shredder. Sending a contribution to you is about the only time I mail a letter nowadays. I don't want any more labels or other gifts to guilt me into giving.

And that's my other beef. I'm not happy that my name has apparently been passed around as a supposed soft touch. I am hearing from agencies that I never knew existed. How did they get my personal information, pray tell?

FWIW, it makes me grumpy and consider not contributing in the future.


  1. I love the adress labels, but maybe I'm not getting as many as you. So far, I don't think my name has been passed around.

  2. Hi Ms Martyr! I just had to come and see where you were since you said you had only spring bulbs so far. Love your guys and the fact that they have jollyballs. Thanks so much for visiting us... we'll definitely be back here. Have a great weekend.

  3. I am so happy you have chickadees nesting! They are such fun to watch.

  4. No guilt for me........I have no problem not giving when they send me unsolicited stuff.

    I'm with you about having information passed around. Are they nuts? If they managed to get something out of me, why would they want me have more ideas on places to send it. Don't they know I have limited resources for such stuff. They're cutting their own throats in more ways than one.
