Charity's guilt-wrapped holidays |

Charity's guilt-wrapped holidays | "Charity's guilt-wrapped holidays

By Mary Z. Gray

SILVER SPRING, MD � I'm not an endangered species; I have no dread disease; my mental faculties are intact (as far as I can tell); and I'm well-housed, well-clad, and (too) well-fed. So why are so many worthy charities donating to me?
I'm snowed under this holiday season with 'free gifts' of handsome calendars, sheets of wrapping paper and note paper, packets of Christmas cards, and dozens of panels of self-addressed labels. All come guilt-wrapped."
