Donated sum to a charity. You’d think they would be grateful. Oh no, phone me up less than 2 hours later touting for more money. I am not an ungenerous person but i hate being pressurised.
Told him i donate as and when i can afford to rather than doing regular giving (already have several DDs to charities and don’t want to do anymore) .
It seems like every other day there’s a charity trying to squeeze money out of you. I can’t remember it being this bad in the 90s/00s. I like donating to charites where there’s a personal/family link, of my own volition as and when able to rather than being pressurised to set up direct debit. Did in fact cancel charity DDs a while back only to be sucked back in because i couldn’t withstand the hard sell.
It’s getting to the point now where i am thinking of putting the phone down as soon as they start their spiel but maybe that’s rude and i should just firmly say ‘no’ i’ll donate if and when i can.
Luckily i have not been approached by the street chuggers much recently probably because i don’t often go out. They seem to hit my block of flats quite regularly. Are the economically impoverished an easy target for these people re willingness to donate to charity?
