Next time, include a return address
We got our first piece of hatemail from our annual appeal at work today.
Now occasionally we get a request to remove people from our mailing list, but this was a new one.
Based on what was written on the donation card, I'm guessing our hater was an adult during the 1970s:
S/he also wrote:
"You don't care about people!"
"You're just as bad as (another nonprofit where people do a lot of work for relatively little money, and also provide services for free.)!"
And a few other insults, as well as:
"Take me off your list!"
Funny thing is...it was sent anonymously.
Seriously, I needed that laugh today!
Speaking of being removed from lists (and laughing), I got this note - no joke - from one of our volunteers:
"Flora W. would like to be removed from the mailing list, as she has died. She lives in Corona, California."
