How to respectfully decline donating to charity @ work?
My company CONSTANTLY asks for donations to the united way, red cross, etc, etc. They're not looking for small donations either...we're talking several hundred bucks a year. I've committed to nearly $300 next year. Additionally, I donate to organizations outside of my organization, like Golden Retriever Rescue, Humane Society etc. Also, DH and I are in the throes of living beans and rice, rice and beans (Dave Ramsey fans know what I'm talking about) and are agressively paying off debt.
Now that the holidays are approaching, everyone is gung ho about adopting a family for the holidays. How do I respectfully decline to participate in donating through the office on this (and potentially future) opportunity?
