Hmm.... I'm a little confused by this solicitation spam I received in the mail yesterday.
First of all, why did they circle the $100 box? I understand how subliminal suggestions are supposed to work, but did they really think this was going to sway me to donate $100? Where's the 25¢ box? I think I might be able to get behind that one.
Then, in an attempt to woo me into donating, they included this shiny metal angel medallion. Granted, I did become a fan here, but please remind me again... how is this supposed to encourage me to donate?
I suppose I could use it at Chuck-E-Cheese to win a fabulous rubber pencil topper.
Then they add a "do not shred" disclaimer on the envelope.
My guess is, they need your donations to pay the settlements to all the people who have been injured by flying paper shredder shrapnel after attempting to dispose of this letter.
Ah... now I understand what the "suffering" thing is all about. So let's see if I've got this straight... they send out a letter with a metal object that maims people, and then ask for $100 to help pay for their lawsuits and injuries.
I think I nailed it. I'm usually pretty intuitive about these things you know.
