Can Publix please stop with the constant asking for money donations for kids,military,school supplies,veterans,animal shelters,etcetera or whatever when you try to buy food at their checkout.I'm getting really sick to death of it.I just left K-Mart and the did the exact same thing .

I don't want to subsidize your contribution to charity so you can claim a fat tax deduction at my expense.Couple that with a stop earlier at dollar tree to buy some gift wrap who also had their hands out,they got me for 4 bucks and I got squat for it.Also,the fried chicken looks pathetic,old and small over the past 2 months.Thanks for the mugging.

Product or Service Mentioned: Publix Chicken.

Monetary Loss: $4.

All they do is ask. You can say no. The cashier's don't care if you donate or not.

Thank you, I will do that. Those son of a b+tch's are keeping most of the money for their pleasure.

I bust

American Red Cross

Claim: President and CEO Marsha J. Evans’ salary for the year was $651,957 plus expenses

Facts: Marsha J.

Evans was CEO of the American Red Cross from 2002-2005. In December 2005 she received a severance package of $780,000. This included 18 months of salary plus $36,495 in an unpaid bonus. Based on this figure, this would work out to about $495,000 per year.

A more recent CEO, Gail McGovern, actually earned more than claimed above, at $1,032,022.

Program Expenses: 92%

March of Dimes Claim: It is called March of Dimes because only a dime for every 1 dollar is given to the needy. Facts: The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis was founded in 1938 and was nicknamed the “March of Dimes” after fundraisers which requested that each child donate a dime (the name was officially changed years later). It should be noted that in 2011 President Jennifer Howse received a salary of $545,982. Program Expenses: 66%-75% The United Way Claim: President Brian Gallagher receives a $375,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.

Facts: As of 2010, President and CEO Brian Gallagher actually made more than claimed, at $559,257. Program Expenses: 89%-91% Unicef Claim: CEO Caryl M Stern receives $1,200,000 per year ($100k per month) plus all expenses including a Rolls Royce. Less than 5 cents of your donated dollar goes to the cause. Facts: President and CEO Caryl M.

Stern’s compensation is currently listed at $454,855. There is no source or evidence to support the Rolls Royce claim. Program Expenses: 90%-91% Sponsored Links Goodwill Claim: CEO and owner Mark Curran profits $2.3 million a year. Goodwill is a very catchy name for his business.

You donate to his business and then he sells the items for PROFIT. He pays nothing for his products and pays his workers minimum wage! Nice guy. $0.00 goes to help anyone!

Stop giving to this man. Facts: This claim is completely false. According to the Goodwill website: “82 percent of Goodwill’s revenues go directly into employment and training programs for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment!” Jim Gibbons is the CEO of Goodwill Industries International and his most recent compensation was reported to be $729,310.

Goodwill has refuted some of these claims here. Program Expenses: 92%

God heavens! All they do is ask, and all you have to do is say "no" if you don't want to donate.

It probably doesn't take more than a minute of your precious time. Stores have been doing it for years and all I do is say "no."

I agree all this kid has to say is NO thanks. Some people actually have a heart and want to donate to charity.

All she has to do say is no, I am selfish and only care about myself. It is my money.

She does not even have to admit she is selfish, just has to say no. Also while she is at it ask her parents to help her Google the term panhandling so she can use it correctly.
