    Love how you can't buy anything these days without being asked on the card swiper if you want to donate a few bucks..
    I use to always add a dollar or two but now its fucking everywhere...


    Buy dog food.. swipe CC Would you like to make a donation to help a homeless pet?
    Buy groceries.. swipe CC Would you like to make a donation to fight cancer?
    Buy electronics.. swipe CC Would you like to make a donation to feed the homeless?
    Buy shit at Target..swipe CC Would you like to make a donation to give a veteran a new leg or something???

    Jesus fuck ....wish I could just tell the cashiers that I am homeless and just walk the store without paying for shit..
    and when caught just ask them if they want to make a donation to the homeless

    fucking assholes

    I always say "no thank you!" with a big polite smile

    It's charity shaming. Like that South Park episode

    Due to the outrageous salaries of charity CEO's they can kiss my ass.

    Cancer, or the kids. Even though those charities don't want a cure for them. The CEO's make way too much money to find cures.

    I'd much rather the electronic begging like they do at Petsmart than the people with the kettle this time of year... Go from a supermarket to a mall to Walmart in one day and get hit up 6 times. And that's not counting the cashiers asking in each of those places. I never understood why I need to be involved if a company wants to donate to a charity, they should just do it,

    i don't make donations when people ask me to. i make them when i feel like it when i want to, (and if they want to say something about it over their PA system at Whole Foods like on South Park, I am ready to take them to court over it).

    I found out first hand just how charitable these organizations are when my parents needed assistance.

    now they can all go scratch - i give to the causes i feel are appropriate when i feel it is appropriate. the rest are just scams to me.

    It is a pain in the ass always being hit up like that.

    I like to turn the tables and show the cashier this picture then ask for a donation for Bianca's Furry Friends.
    I tell them that we have raised 7 million dollars for the cat playhouse and we only need 4 million more before we can break ground.
    I haven't collected a single penny yet.

    South Park addressed this on a recent episode called "Safe Space" that is really funny.

    OTOH, you really should consider making a sizable donation to a worthwhile animal charity in the memory of Silent Frog :up:
