Why don't they just donate?

Why doesn't Yoplait just donate to breast cancer based on sales? Frankly, if I'm going to donate money, I want a tax receipt. Why should I waste my time & money for postage so a big corporation can get a tax write-off? Anyone else feel this way?

  • i agree, OP! for all we donate or give, its perfectly legal and fine to get your tax receipt. the more you can deduct from paying, the more you can give the next year, right?? you're not cheating anyone by having a tax receipt. in fact, its more financially sound to do so.

  • I see it being much more simple if they just donated based off of the sales instead of people sending in the lids. But I wouldn't want a tax receipt. I don't want to be rewarded for my donations.

  • Because no one really turns in those lids and thats less that comes out of their pockets.

  • I agree with Misteh, it's because they don't have to give as much.

  • Perhaps it's because they're trying to get people involved.
