To encourage your donation, charities often send notepads, pens, gift wrap, address labels, and other tokens along with their request for funds. If you won’t be using these gifts in the next few weeks, consider recycling what you can and tossing or donating the rest. Then, request that your name be removed from the charity’s mailing list. You can still donate if you wish; the mail solicitations aren’t necessary.
