The cynic in me just thinks the store only donates a small percentage to charity, and pockets most of it.

Must be why I never donate at these things.

I don't, because they often don't name a charity, or name a charity that isn't registered in Canada, like "Habitat For Humanity". (They are a non-profit)

The only one I'll typically do is firehouse subs. They have a charity setup to go to first responders to use/give back to their communities. And they do it right where instead of asking for x amount, they just ask if you want to round up to the closest dollar.

Plus their subs are great [drool]

It's because THEY get the tax receipt for YOUR donation.
You think all that loose change donated at SaveOn and Jimmy P. doesn't get a receipt when he donates it all in bulk?

This is why I do all my donations on my home computer. I get the receipt straight from the charity, and I can save it for when I do my taxes.
