Holiday cards, gifts, family gatherings, snowflakes, and hot chocolate. I seem to be forgetting something in that long list of signs of the season. Oh yes, I recall – appeals, appeals, appeals. They come in your mailbox, they come in your e-mail, they ring bells near a red bucket in front of stores you frequent or come in the form of a plate at church.
This time of year fundraising requests seem to be everywhere. The can be frustrating, they can be annoying, they can be downright infuriating. We know; we get them too.
