Would you donate 4 cents?

 I work at Walmart and this month we are raising money for CMN (Children's Miracle network). I am supposed to ask everyone that comes into my line if they'd like to donate. Not many people were interested. Some people had orders that were 9.96. I asked them if they'd like to donate 4 cents towards the fundraiser. I was so surprised at how many people refused to donate less than a dime. Jeez. Stingy much? My vent for the night lol.

 I know right. I know I don't want four cents hanging around when I already have a million pennies.

I round mine off every time :) I think a lot of people are paranoid that the fund isn't really going to certain charities that they donate to. so many scandals and stuff have come out.

 I can understand that. I just couldn't believe how many people tuned it down over a few cents. I can understand not wanting to donate more than a few bucks... but jeez. I had about 5 people donate anything at all.
