When it comes to charities, many still think the only way to get your donation is to guilt you. This insults everybody involved:
- It insults those who donate because it implies people only care when they are guilted or shamed into giving.
- It insults those who work on the ground and in the field because it glosses over the complexity, challenges, and dangers they face to make a difference.
- It insults, most importantly, the poor. Many would rather have their dignity than be used as an object of pity.
The only way this will stop is if charities realize we don’t support this. This Christmas donate wisely.
