    For once they are correct. They labels are unsolicited, and are yours to use as you will.

    My charities don’t offer them but I am happy to use those offered by the charities that do.

    Yeah, I truly hate to agree with anything the Pennys do, but I’d use ‘em too, if they’d ever get both my name and address right.

    I refuse be coerced into paying for things I didn’t order, especially from organisations I don’t care to support.
    … And the law says it’s not stealing.

    There’s NO point to sending them back… cos… oh nooo ..
    Burl is (gulp) absolutely right.

    And if they have the organisation’s name on them they’d rather you used them, paid or not, cos it’s advertising for them.

    Dang! It’s hard to say that the Pennys are r-r-r-right.

    I’m not even going to bother trying to say it. It just goes against every fiber of my being, since they are more than often wrong.

    I have to agree. We recieved labels from a charity we never heard of, my wife sent them money. I told her just because someone sends you something, you only have to pay for it if you ordered it.

    40 years ago, when my grandmother died, some sleazy company sent my grandfather a lamented clipping of her obit that was meant to be used as a bookmark. They wanted him to either pay $5 for it or send it back. He was upset. He didn’t really want it, but he said if he sent it back they would just throw it away and disrespect her. I told him to just put it in his keepsakes. I said he didn’t order it, he wouldn’t have to pay for it. They couldn’t even prove they sent it to him. That is what he did.

    I even have to agree with their (never thought I would say this here) logic. How ironic that a company wanting to preserve forests would print labels that most people are going to just throw away.

    My wife has caught on, we only give to the charities we believe in and can afford. If they solicit without our asking that puts them at the bottom of the list. We use their mailing lables guilt free.

    Now if you like this comment send me $5, if you don’t please delete it now.

    Good morning Crustwood!

    The Pennys are right for the first time in living memory. It’s also a good thing to check on what percentage of your donation actually gets to the cause. In some cases, it’s a real eye-opener.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I was going to send $5 but sealed the envelope before I could put it in with this note. Sorry.

    those labels are always sent the cheapest way possible, bulk rate. that means that if the addressee has moved or refuses to accept them, then the postal service does not return them to the mailer, they trash them.
    If you think you are ‘fixing’ a company for sending you unsolicited mail by marking refused on it, all you are doing is letting the postal service trash them for you….the only way to return them to the mailer is to put them in a separate envelope and mail it back to them , you paying the postage.

    Back when I still mailed things (before all bills could be paid online) I used to print my own and I still have many Avery forms (mailing labels, business cards etc). I also have some of those unsolicited things, the only ones I like and even pay for are a calendar or date book now and then because they are useful to me.
