I did that one year and said never again after all the "thank you" mail I got even though I requested no further contact. I still get "thank you" mail from one of them despite calling and writing to them that it was a one time donation. They have spent more than I donated to all of them combined trying to get me to donate again. That and the fact that the Fool is sticking with the same organizations, I really liked it when they let you nominate and they chose new ones every year.
