I am forced to quit giving money donations to charities. Once you give one cent to any charity that requests money over the phone or through the mail, they give your phone number and address to every charity in the world.
I average four to five phone calls a day and have changed my phone number twice, but they have a way of getting your new number the day after you change it (and not from the phone company).
I do belong to the Missouri and the National No Call Lists, but charities are exempt from the law.
Until the laws are changed about giving or selling personal information, I will no longer give to charities.
