Have you been afflicted by this new innovation, of charities sending you a pack of five to ten Christmas cards, and expecting you to make a donation?
Some are worse than others in the gifts-for-money stakes. From one particular charity I have had the umbrella, slippers, a bag a blanket and today the Christmas cards. I am also awash with labels telling me who I am and where I live.
The card phenonemon seems to be shooting other charities in the foot – I honestly have had five today from Feed My People, five yesterday from Water and Food for Africa, a few weeks back five of one size from some diabetes charity, and the next day five of the same designs, slightly larger, from the same charity!
How come no-one ever sends me this swag!?
