What a beautiful Monday Morning we're having here in Western Maryland.  
I had a great weekend how about you?

Everywhere I go to make a purchase anymore... whether it be fast food or a retail purchase, as I'm ready to hand over my money - I'm asked the question...  "Do you want to donate a dollar to the blah blah blah?"

First of all, I donate to charities I feel moved to donate to.  I do not need someone to ask me if I will give.  Secondly, what about the poor woman or man who has $3 to buy a gallon of milk and no more - don't you think they might be embarrassed by the cashier asking them if they want to donate a dollar to the blah blah blah?  

If I gave a dollar to every cashier that asked me if I wanted to donate a dollar to blah blah blah... 

 I'd have to ask for donations myself.  

Don't get me wrong.  Asking for donations is a good thing, but putting people on the spot> making them feel embarrassed if they do not give > doesn't seem right to me.
