So you think $1.00 is reasonable to spend on a thank you note, but $1.21 is not???? Your argument doesn't make any sense!

Total cost of Asoka Thank You was probably about $1.00.

Cost of POSTAGE alone for Grameen was $1.21, that did not include the brouchures themselves and any additional labor costs.

Maybe the problem wasn't Grameen thanking you for your donation. Maybe the problem was you splitting your $5 donation among 5 charities!

Next year, give your tiny donation to a single charity. Do you think the charities like receiving $1 donations from people? That's a negative donation - you're costing the charities money on administration that could be going to charitable work!

I only donated $5 to each charity since that was all I had to spare and since I did not prefer one charity over another. They say that every cent counts and I believe that. Silly me. Your premise is basically if I don't have a substantial amount to give, don't bother?

Why don't you get your facts straight before jumping all over other people. Talk about UnReal!

Thank you for you input though, have a Wonderful New Year!
