We Received this Back in the Mail Today
We sent out our membership mailing a couple of weeks back, and discovered that there are a few people who are very angry about the results of the last election. I have no problem with this type of anger, but write down your name and be willing to stand behind your opinions. This was delivered anonymously. If nothing else we would take this individual off our mailing list, so that we do not raise the ire of a former donor with any future request for a donation.
"Please forward this request to the White House and suggest that the President consider it as part of his redistribution plan. Ask that he distributes to you whatever he wishes from the additional portion of money he will be taking from me as part of that redistribution. Good Luck.This was written in same festive red printing, but without a name attached. How are we supposed to forward all future requests if we do not know who this person is? I am not sure how effective this plan will be to send all charitable requests to the White House, but we are willing to try. I pay pretty close attention to national politics and policies that would have an impact on homeless, and have not heard about this Obama redistribution plan. I will keep an eye out for an announcement as part of the transition. Thanks for the information, and maybe we need to give the new guy in office a chance to take the oath before we start criticizing him.
p.s. And, as long as Obama is president, please send all future requests for a charitable contribution directly to the White House."
