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.
