Charity squeeze -- baltimoresun.com: "Half of all the individual donations from Americans each year are made in the handful of weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, Charity Navigator says. Thank the combination of general good will toward man, holiday bonuses and the end-of-year deadline for tax deductions. Charities, squeezed by rising costs and greater competition for government grants, are more eager than ever to get your support. Don't be surprised if you get appeals by mail, on the telephone and at your door."
