Free gifts don't always do the trick

I appreciate that charities send free gifts like address labels- I know I will never have to buy labels again because I keep getting new ones in the mail. But it is a little disconcerting that more than half of them come labeled “Mr. Erin (Last Name Withheld)...” and not “Ms. Erin... (Last Name Withheld)” Are there really a lot of men out there with the name of Erin? Spelled that way? It makes me think twice about donating to them, because what if I am forever a male in their fundraising database? Too much hassle.

But it is fun to send those labels on cards/letters that go to family members...

  1. I find it even more amusing that they withhold your last name. Seems kind of silly.
