They called here this morning on my business line. It was a young woman. It sounded like a call center in the background with a lot of people. I was not interested and quickly hung up.

According to the December 7th, 2007 HeraldNet article, "ATS NW Inc., also of Lynn­wood, collecting for Beni Hassan Shrine Temple No. 64, Operation Lookout National Center for Missing Youth, Olympus Lodge 45 Prince Hall Mason and Washington Council of the Blind, gathered $904,308 and gave 15 percent to charity."

This is compared with other telemarketers that gave 82% and 50%, so be informed that your donations will be going to other things beside the charity that you are donating towards.

See additional information on them here:

It's that time of year again when people are feeling charitible, but please be careful. Personally I never give out information by phone, especially financial information. If you really want to donate, then ask them where you can mail a donation, or contact the charity directly to donate. I would also ask them what percentage of the money donated goes to the charities.
