I'm programming on my laptop with the TV on in the background, and it seems like 90% of the commercials are charity commercials. And it seems like every single one is exactly the same.
"Something something unfortunate situations for children, animals, the environment, Israel, etc
*dramatic music in the background*
For a monthly donation of just $25 you can help with so and so in their situation.
We'll even send you a free t-shirt with our logo!
pls halp contribute to these people in need"
I don't know how to say this without sounding miserly, but does it ever seen like some of they're somehow being disingenuous, or that there's something "off" about them? One of the charity commercials was for Shriners Hospitals for Children and I know that they're genuine and have donated in the past, but I'm getting a gut feeling like some of these aren't. And my gut feelings tend to be fairly accurate, or at least relatively accurate.
