Private / Foolanthropy -- Charity Drive

I made a small donation to all 5 charities for my kids on FFF. Not a lot, don't have a lot to spare, but since I didn't really prefer on charity over the other, I made equal donations to each.

I won't be doing that again. Especially if Grameen is one of them again. Today in the mail, costing $1.21 to send it to me was a packet that probably cost more than my donation did just to say Thank You. I don't want a thank you, I want to know my money is going to work for the great cause, not thank you letters, pretty brouchures and postage.

At least with AShoka I only got a simple letter, total cost maybe $1.00 of my donation.

If the other charities follow suit like Grameen, I'll think twice about donating to them at all.
