The thing that really grates me about a lot of charities is that they guilt trip you hard, even if you're a donor. So far MSF haven't done that to me...

No, I have to stress that I never perceived what MSF do as guilt tripping, it's usually a positive message up front, but it still feels awkward to me because I don't want to see myself as giving for such superficial reasons as being moved by the fate of some individual. If they sent me a bunch of pages with graphs, I'd be happier.

No fully, I agree - Care though... some of the emails they used to send... I'd say they were guilt tripping... Maybe it's in the eye of the beholder though...

RE: Mission trips
This thread reminds me of the skit on SNL about charity. So funny.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
