Fundraising Appeals

I've started this file to keep track of organizations that actually listen to their friends. Southern Poverty Law Center and Planned Parenthood were the first to earn my ire, and I sent letters to them in times past to let them know that their fundraising efforts were outrageous. They would ignore me, never once addressing my concerns. The appeals continue nonetheless, a waste of other donors' money....

Now I've got a (fairly) standard letter which I send. I use that for each new organization that I choose to fund. One has already failed this most recent test: Amnesty International, much to my dismay.
