The most recent donations I remember making are the ones attached to credit card machines at retail and grocery stores.
“Thank you for shopping at PetCo, would you like to donate $1 to rescue animals?”
“Thank you for purchasing a bag of salt & vinegar Chips at Conoco, would you like to donate $5 to the Children’s Fund?”
My answer is always yes without having any idea where my money is going and what it is actually doing. Why is that? Is it because we trust non-profit and charitable organizations to do the right thing?
