to someone who dropped a gift of 220ml shower gel at your door? And left a letter that said part of profits will go to charity.

I probably wouldnt do it for a few reasons. Maybe im jsut paranoid but heres why: 1) Who's to say that shower gel wasnt switched with some chemical that could hurt? 2) The person might be scamming free samples for money 3) You send the money and now they have your address, who knows what they'd do Jokes aside i still probably wouldnt do it. The person isnt mandating it so if I really wanted to donate, I'd take the $4 and go to salvation army or red cross and drop it off myself.

Okay thanks, my little cousin wanted to do this. And I wanted to see what was everyone's response was. I also think it's a bad idea.

It's a bit suspicious so I would rather donate the funds to a charity institution myself or to someone else who needs it badly, however if I would be able to talk to the actual person then I may donate some.

What gets me is the 'part' will go to charity. Either it's going to charity, or basically, she's selling the product. If she wants to help a charity, she should contact them, get the proper credentials, and then ask for out and out donations. I would be much more likely to donate than 'buy' something, even if it was offered as a free sample, free gift, etc.

Nope. I will get suspicious why someone won't meet me if he/she has a good reason for charity.

I would be a bit leery of that. It seems a little wierd to me.
