I now work with a not-for-profit organization called Girls' LEAP in Boston, we teach young inner city girls self-defense as well as reflective skills, like how to get out of bad situations, how to know when you are in a healthy or unhealthy relationship and so on and so forth. Recently it's been time to mail out the holiday letter. This is the letter we send out letting previous donors know about the year and also asking for money. I have been the sole person doing this, There are about 500 letters I have sent out. That means I have folded into 3's 1000 pieces of paper. It has killed my back. What do you do when you get holiday letters from non profit organizations? Do you donate? Organizations like this cannot function without our donations. If you can afford it do you donate?

Usually I do, because I think about scam. Best for your group is to contact big companies to participate. This way you can gain a lot of creditability.

that sounds like a great organization, congrats on being part of such a good group. unfortunately i usually throw those letters out because i never do have enough to donate...and many of those say they want a minimum if i ever do have money i do donate. over here we have bandanna day which supports canteen (which helps kids/teens with cancer) and i always buy a bandanna for a couple of dollars...even a couple of dollars is a lot to me often but i do try and give something sometimes.
