Charity Letters

Do you get annoyed when people like the British Red Cross send envelopes filled with greetings cards begging for a contribution and putting emotional blackmail on you? I  prefer to give when I choose and wonder how much money is wasted with these unsolicited postings costing at least 50 pence a time.


  1. The one that really annoys me is the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists. They send an unsolicited pack of Christmas cards every year so you feel obliged to buy them or send them back at your own expense.

  2. We get loads of charity collection bags pushed through the front door, if you bag the stuff up it sometimes gets stolen. It is best to make a donation or take stuff to a charity shop.
