I got a check from MADD, once. Also a certificate and a pen. I was going to frame it and hang it above the liquor cabinet, but I got drunk and forgot where I put it.

I read a study that suggested people were more likely to do a survey if you gave them a free dollar first than if you promised them 5 dollars afterwards.

maggierose - just pop 'em out into a jar, then go and have a beer when you have enough. In the meantime, give to the charities that you chose.
I do air-ambulance, heart disease, cancer research, and childhood leukaemia.

5Cats, don't know about "genius." Doesn't take much to open the letter, peel off the coin, shove it in your pocket and toss the rest.

Then again, some -- a few -- might feel guilty enough to send a few bucks. Can't believe how many address labels (usually with the name misspelled) we used to get in the mail as incentives to send donations to this or that group. On the one hand, everyone's telling you to "go green" and eliminate paper. On the other, they're stuffing your mailbox to bursting with this crap.

Also free pens. Tiny little bookie's pens. But now you're obliged.
I have have seven charities I give to and I'm not taking new applications. I've checked them out and I'm reasonably happy with their work There is one about fostering puppies that I kind of fell for, I was a little bit drunk when the call came and she sounded cute and, hey, puppies. So I signed up for a couple of quid a month. But the rest are ideologically sound.

Jake_Justice: actually it's marketing genius!

Most people are extremely adverse to throwing money into the trash, so they're more likely to open the letter to take the nickel out!
That's literally half the battle, just getting suckers to open the letter! And it's almost free!

They want your dollar so they can spend $0.05 actually helping "the poor children"...

By putting the nickel towards a beer, you can stop a child choking on it.

What's nuts is that some clown working in a fund-raising department ran into his boss' office one day and yelled, "I've got it, we'll put nickels in all the envelopes! The donations will come POURING in after that. You'll see."
