Manipulative?

July 05, 1985

Have you noticed how manipulative the charitable agencies have become in their appeals for money contributions? The solicitations they send out have designated spaces for $50, $35, $25 and $15 donations, and a blank space for "other"--presumably for those cheapskates who only wish to donate $10. I feel strongly that if they frown at my $10, which does not rate a space of its own, they can return my check to me.

It seems likely that five people might be motivated to donate $10 each before one person donated $50, but without the approved $10 designated space, they might pass on this one and go for one of the other solicitations that arrived in the mail at the same time.
