Fundraising alert

Why send me all these trinkets when all I want to do is help?

A year ago I started to make charitable donations of $25 to various charitable organizations.

Since then, I have been flooded with requests from many other different organizations.

The ones I have given money to have been bombarding me with more requests for financial help. These letters have pre-paid postage return envelopes. Also, they have been mailing me calendars, note pads, address return stickers, writing cards and now Christmas Cards, Christmas stickers and Christmas present tags.

My concern is this: is there any money left over for the cause that was intended. If I wanted all this junk, I could easily go to a bargain shop. Are there any other readers out there that share my concern?
