Spare a (million) penny/s
I know I promised not to write on this subject ever again, but.....
Because I live alone I have no-one to whom I may air my grievances, leaving this blog as my only recourse.
This morning I rushed to the door as an avalanche of mail crashed through the letter-box. I was waiting for one item (still am), and found instead seven items of mail, all of them appeals.
This is not unusual as I have said many times before, I have a system in place and stick to it for the sake of retaining my sanity.
What has totally incensed me today is that four of the seven items were from the same charity.
Now perhaps no-one else thinks the way I do and maybe they believe, as does the charity in question, that four appeals in one post is not excessive, but I am at screaming point with frustration over their total lack of common sense, poor organisation and highly suspect method of fund-raising.
I have looked them up on the 'web' and they have no phone number listed (probably just to avoid this very scenario) , had there been one this diatribe would have been verbal not typed.
Just to compound the felony, I gave them a donation last month, which those of you who have read my previous posts on this subject will know, means that they will get nothing more for 3 months.
Because I support and approve of their work I have so far restrained my desire to 'go public', but this is the last straw.
The charity in question is The Pony Sanctuary and they have received their last donation from me.
