Every time I buy groceries I get asked “would you like to donate a
dollar to the ____ fund” This simple question causes me some anxiety.
What do you say?
First of all, sometimes it’s to a charity I have never heard of… so
I really don’t know if I would like to give them my hard earned dollar
and I am sure the line of 4 people waiting to checkout would not like
to hear me quiz the 18 year old cashier on where my dollar is headed.
For the ones I am aware of, like the Susan G Koman or the local
school district, I feel pressure to say yes, because everyone in line
just heard them ask me for a dollar! and it’s only a dollar! Once
again, I don’t know exactly where or to whom my dollar is going to… so
my answer once again is no.
As I head to my car I do feel guilty and a bit down that I didn’t spare my dollar. What do you do?
