I’m sorry! Locally, we send a maximum of 2-3 solicitation letters and 2 emails per year (you may have just gotten our spring mailing). We do also send out our newsletter and annual report, but those are quarterly publications. My guess is your complaints are with the national organization PPFA, since I see from your giving history here that you made your gift through the national online giving site, rather than to our local affiliate directly.
I’m happy to contact PPFA on your behalf and ask to have you removed from mailings, and will do so locally as well, if you wish.
This is one of the sticky parts of being affiliated with a national org- we each do our own fundraising and sometimes it can add up to a lot, but neither PPGMR or PPFA would want to alienate a supporter.
Let me know what you’d like me to do, and please always feel free to contact me directly with any questions or concerns you may have.
I do appreciate your support!
In short, donating to your local Planned Parenthood will probably result in less spam. So donate directly to PPGMR here. I’m going to do that right now because I kinda feel like a dick for calling out a good organization.
I have been a longtimesupporter. I like what you do. I’m a big fan of reproductive rights. I include you in my rotation of charities to which I donate.
Jesus tapdancing christ, stop fucking mailing me shit. You’ve probably undone ever donation I’ve ever made in costs related to printing and postage. I get three fucking solicitations from you a week. Do you think this makes me more likely to donate more often? It does not. it does not so hard it actually has the opposite effect. The more you spam me, the less likely I am to donate to you. It’s annoying. The volume is far, FAR too high. Mail me once every few months if you want, remind me you’re still there. Still doing great things. I don’t mind. But the fucking deluge has to stop. Please. Or I’ll start sending you other junkmail back in your own envelopes.
We have been informed by the National Weather Service here in Memphis to expect rain with embedded thunderstorms through much of the day on Saturday. As much as as this is an inconvience for us, our patrons, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, performing artists, and cooking teams alike, we have elected to move the event to our alternate rain date which is the next day Sunday, April 28.
It’s at Jefferson Davis park on riverside at Jefferson.
