When A Charity Calls Thursday Tip: Eliminate The Middleman

Eliminate The Middleman

If you determine that the telemarketer is calling you on behalf of a charity that you wish to support, contact the charity and find out how to donate to it directly. That way you avoid having part of your donation taken by a for-profit company.

To conclude the 'When a Charity Calls'  series, if you take only one thing away, we hope it is: when telemarketers are involved, just HANG up the phone!
