Today in the mail, I received a request for donations to an organization for whose destruction I pray every day. As tempting as it was to rip it in half and toss in the the recycling bucket, I opened it instead and found a postage paid return envelope.
I am a bit gleeful.
You see, if that envelope is used, they have to pay for the postage. It's a reduced bulk rate, but it's money nonetheless. Now, if I sent in a donation, that gift would easily cover the cost.
But if I return it empty...or better yet, filled with prayer cards...it costs them a tiny bit. But if you do it, too, it costs a bit more. So watch that junk mail carefully, folks. Let your least favorite "non-profits" know how you feel about them.
