Drowning in Junk Mail – This Week in Junk Mail, 2 pieces

All 2 pieces

Why am I madder at getting 2 pieces than I was at getting 150?

These 2 pieces set me back to 0. The goal right now is to go a month with out any junk mail with her name on it. I have gone 8 days with no junk mail in the past. It is time to go to the next level.

The DMA Ethics office is mad at me for all the complaints I sent in. Whatever DMA. You made this mess, now you get to clean it up.

2 pieces of junk mail
Meet the 2 pieces of junk mail that came this week.

Prevention Magazine booklet ad
Prevention Magazine booklet ad

An ad for Prevention Magazine call (800) 813-8070. When I called I found out that she had a subscription in the past. The CSR had no knowledge of this little booklet and thinks it might be a part of a church fundraiser. She lives near a church and gave to them regularly. It would not surprise me if she bought a magazine subscription from the church during a fundraiser.

Help Hospitalized Veterans

Was Delivered at Grand Junction CO Community Based Arts & Crafts Center by an HHV Craft Care Specialist.


Thank you for the wooden wishing well kit.

There is not much I can do about this postcard. It is in a closet somewhere attached to a craft kit of some kind. I may be seeing these for years :/

Charity Navigator page. I have been doing this project so long that their rating has changed. The last time I checked on them, they were so bad that Charity Navigator had slapped a Donor Advisory on them. Charity Navigator has processed the newest IRS 990’s and bumped them up to 1 star.

HHV’s fundraising is done by American Target Advertising opt-out here. If that doesn’t work call (703) 392-7676 and American Mailing Lists Corporation (571) 292-5806
