For the guy whose only donation is Salvation Army/Goodwill/St. Vincent dePaul, and has no donations other than household goods

He didn't say only charity, he said favorite charity. If you were to look at my tax return, you would see that there are more entries for Goodwill than any other charity. It isn't because Goodwill is my favorite charity. It's because when I have something here or there that I no longer need, they're one mile down the road. I don't have a long list of charities on my return because I'd rather give a larger donation to one charity than to give little donations to a whole bunch of them.
