Goddamn it charities. I donate to you when I can, really I do. I have a monthly debit that goes out to a charity in Haiti doing school work and planting food. It's awesome.
And I'll donate to other places every so often. But here are a couple things to know.
1. I WILL NOT GIVE MY FUCKING CREDIT CARD NUMBER TO ANYONE ON THE STREET. WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S OK TO ASK FOR THIS INFORMATION YOU FUCKING IDIOTS?
2. After I donate to you once, I don't want begging e-mail every other day (Democrats.) asking for my money. I don't have unlimited funds, I know you exist, if I want to give you money I will. What happens when you send me a million e-mails asking for money, is you get junked. And then when I see your canvassers on the street, I tell them to fuck off and all my Goodwill goes out the window.
Giving you a donation does not give you the right to endlessly harass me for more money. And you'll very quickly get on my shit list no matter how much good you do.
