Why worry about it. Those who feel obligated can pay. I just say NO, knowing those who hear me can feel its fine to say NO. I'm not guilt ridden, I'm my own man and make my own decisions. If asked if I want to save cats for instance, I say hell no euthanize them.

What I think many people don't realize is that these mega corporations that do the checkout canvassing for charity get all the benefits of the massive tax break at the end of the year. Those one or two dollar donations at the check stands adds up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax breaks to the company every year and the donators get squat. My wife and I donate what we can to our charity of choice, which for us is Variety heart, and get a tax receipt for a few hundred dollars a year. Better us than a company that already takes in billions!
Yes it says much of that in the story my friend. They say "Help us raise money" but the givers are not them. They take credit. May ALLAH piss in their goat soup.
