We still get cold calls from charities. I am sure Mrs ERJ is on a list as a soft touch. I am not the only person who recognizes that she is an extraordinarily generous person.
So far, my favorite charity is "Pretty Good Charity". We did not donate to them but I applaud their modesty. The fellow on the phone was most engaging. PGC collects donations and disbursesthose funds to other charities (the caller was unable to tell me the names of those charities) that meet their Pretty Good criteria. After, of course, deducting a processing fee.
I believe they have a branch that solicits funds from people with traditional Jewish last names. They go by the name "Chutzpah Charity".
In lieu of actual content I will post a picture
