unwanted products

One would think that I would be happy to have products sent my way. And this usually is true. As I mentioned before, I love getting mail. Really, I do. Except when it’s mail from St. Joseph’s Indian School.

My funds are limited and I am choosy with the charities I support. Their school seemed like a good cause (and I have a good amount of indian in me) so one time, ONE TIME, I sent them a small donation. I sent them what I could afford and hoped that it would go to good use. Never again. Since then, over and over again I have been piled with junk mail and trinkets and products. They’ve sent me key chains and dream catchers and note pads and calendars and cards, and once, even a blanket! And I wonder, is *this* where my money went? Not to helping some sweet indian kid but to sending unwanted crap to people with the hopes that they’ll send you a larger donation?

I intend to send them a letter one of these days letting them know exactly why I will not be sending them money ever again. Stupid indians. >:(

On another note, one place you should feel good about sending your money (they will give you a subscription to their magazine but otherwise don’t send any crap that I can recall) – Best Friends Animal Society. I heart them. They have an animal sanctuary in Utah and help thousands of animals.

do a good deed and get 1 cent shipping!

Right now at GreaterGood Network sites, when you spend $50+ you get 1 cent shipping. With each item purchased, you help money to go to good causes. I usually do my shopping on the animal rescue site but there are many in the network to choose from.

The sites include:

The Animal Rescue Site

The Hunger Site

The Breast Cancer Site

The Child Health Site

The Literacy Site

The Rainforest Site

Even if you can’t buy anything (though if you can you should definitely go look around. They have some great stuff!) you can help by clicking at each site every day. Click here for the animal rescue site FAQ.
