yea but i dont want to be told by someone with tons of money to spare no matter how much they have given already to donate
That's the stupidest damn thing I've heard all day, and I sat through an hour and a half of a class called "The Global Experience."
People are bound to go on TV suggesting you donate. Celebs have the experience on TV, they look good on TV, and people recognize their name. It's all pathos.
No one is going to put Ms. Maureen Bohasslen from Smith, Kansas, and have her suggest you donate. That removes all the pathos appeal, therefore removing all incentive to give.
