I'm OK with this in that it might get people who don't make charitable contributions to give something. I feel no compunction in telling them "not today" when they ask. I say no because I have areas where that money already goes and meets my standards.

I am a sucker for raffles, though. Any charity that has a drawing for something will likely get my money. I like my odds!

I think the asking if we want to round up a purchase is a way to replace the old donation jars that used to sit near cash registers now that so few people use cash.

Very well said!!

I'm with you, Jamie. First, I already give to vetted organizations. And secondly, I too am skeptical of the ultimate destination of the donation. But I suppose for those who do not have planned giving in their budgets that this method is clever.
