We sat around the lunch table at Love146 today arguing about end-of-year appeals…
Frankly, I think that year-end appeals from charities have become like white noise. And using the “last chance for a tax deductible donation” tactic feels at best, awkward and at worst…manipulative. I contended that we shouldn’t add to the noise. But other staff pointed at the gaps in our budget and argued that we should offer you the chance to give if it’s a good time. It was looking like a potential mutiny and I was clearly over ruled.
So…I’ll keep it simple and have only two things to say: first, sorry to bug you, and second, give money if you can.
No, please- despite my reluctance to ask at this time, we could really use it to prevent kids from being trafficked and care for survivors.
Hope your holidays have been filled with wonder and love… end-of-year appeals and all,
President & Co-founder, Love146
