Charity Wednesdays - If It Sounds Too Good to Be True . . .

In the spirit of the holiday season, I thought this vintage BBB commercial would be fun.  Our most basic advice on avoiding consumer scams is the same today as it was back then - if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 

The same message applies to charitable giving.  If a charity tells you it has no overhead expenses or that all of your donation will go toward programs, they are probably not telling you the truth.  Always ask questions and never feel pressured into making a donation.   Your generosity this holiday season is sorely needed by your favorite charities.  Your experience of giving should be a good one.

Happy Thanksgiving!
