It seems I can't get away from the Salvation Army. From the holiday commercials, to emails in my inbox asking me for donations, to its presence on Facebook. See, my local news station, WTVR, has been running regular giveaways on Facebook that I have been entering. What the news station does is post links to merchants, you like their page, and then enter for whatever it is they are offering. Of course I have not won anything yet.
Imagine my surprise a couple of days ago when I saw a link there to the Salvation Army. Sure, I have seen the Salvation Army's prior pleas on the news site asking for donations. My posts to them about being turned down for help (they are advertising 40 programs when I was told of only 3) went of course unanswered.
Anyway, this was different. They are actually running a giveaway. Huh? I checked the page out because I was wondering how they could afford to give stuff away, when I was turned down for help. I even had the beastly idea of entering. It is not the prizes I am after (they are tickets for events I would not be able to attend anyway).
No, since all my emails and posts from me to them, asking to explain about their discrepancies in advertised services and what I was told, are being ignored, I figured it would make for good irony if they finally had to deal with me, if I won something. Alas, I decided against it. Let someone win the tickets who really "needs" them. Besides, my name is probably on some kind of blacklist by now anyway.
