Wow. Probably the first piece of potential spam I've ever seen on here and the "Spam Bulldog" is nowhere to be seen. Go figure.

OP here

I know, I know, I was totally prepared for someone to call me on Spamming. But I thought I'd take the chance. I couldn't think of a better place to post about such a worth and appropriate cause. Thanks!

how in the world is this spam? it directly links to a page on which you choose your state from a drop-down box and then "walk" a heart into a house. that step finishes the whole deal. and it is DONATING to a great cause. there's no sale or flashy art linking to a sale or any area for further personal information to bombard you in the future. do you even know what "spam" is? i donated for my state. i think this program is awesome! i donate plenty on a regular basis, but these products never crossed my mind! thanks to the OP for educating me and helping me help others help others!!

as defined by websters: SPAM-To indiscriminately send unsolicited, unwanted, irrelevant, or inappropriate messages, especially commercial advertising in mass quantities. Noun: electronic "junk mail".

this link in no way qualifies as such.

This link reminds me of something I used to do annually which was load up on shampoo, hairspray, deoderant, towels, contact solution, washcloths and sanitary pads/tampons and take them to a local church who would donate them to a women's shelter (they had a big drive every year in my old neighborhood). I haven't done that since I moved and your post reminded me that I need to find a way to keep it up in my new neighborhood too.
