Ever deliberated over the plastic give-away you get for giving a donation? As in I just don’t want more plastic worthless stuff. Why not just give the money and take nothing?
Something for nothing? It’s funny we just don’t seem willing to give a penny unless we get a bit of worthless plastic in return.
Imagine the money charities would make if we gave a donation, but expected nothing in return. It would save the charities money and us from gaining worthless stuff. Surely it’s then saving marketing costs too? More money in the charities funding pot.
Try it the next time there’s a donation bucket with a free book mark or squashy ball. Just give the money and leave the stuff. It feels great.
