Calls for donations in December: Am I just stingy?

As to all the calls for donations, which are widely used in the run-up to Christmas? I can't hear the whole "Bättle". The money sitting in the people in this time of the year particularly loose in the bag? Or the organizers are counting on the bad Conscience of the consumer? Or just a right at the end of my Aversion to manufacturing, to cover my own stinginess? C. M.

Dear M.

is So regularly the donations at the end of the year, questions come to call the donations (to the end of the year), and the current aggregated state of my previous answers to this, apparently on the nails burning Problem: I find generosity from all good donations ditto, but I don't think it is a moral duty on each advent calendar sent with a donation to react.

angry, I respond to all Attempts of public welfare tasks in private Charity to outsource. To promote research against cancer is a public task, or is in the interests of pharmaceutical companies; one should not, even then, when it comes to cancer in children – to make a private donation matter. Ultimately you could delete, otherwise, all taxes, and once the tasks of the state through Crowdfunding Finance: Who looks cute, has the best chances of Survival.

Probably it is actually the ritual of the link with the Christmas hustle and bustle, is a particularly on the hands.

So far, in my Opinion, in terms of donations. At least one aspect of your request to my unmassgebliche view is not taken into account yet, namely, what in a year-end donation rally really sucks. One could not ignore the Whole thing (even if it is, indeed, quite easy) so generous as generous a million gifts for Nigerian Bank Directors, the moves just keep the E-Mail trash.

Probably it is actually the ritual of the link with the Christmas hustle and bustle, is a particularly on the hands – certainly more than the donations themselves. Even if you are not stingy, you can donate but easily an allergic defense reaction against the Overdose of Christmas mulled wine silent night Ritual to develop.

Especially since it really is difficult to see why all non-profit organizations must, almost simultaneously, of all things, in the run-up to Christmas on a plunge. But each of the marketing managers make sense of should, that they keep only the reluctance and defense.
