If you want a donation, leave out the gory graphics

At this time of year, my mailbox is inundated with requests from animal charities for contributions. I am a big animal supporter and try to contribute what I can comfortably manage financially. But if a charity wants a donation from me, they need to leave out the gory graphics on the envelopes and inside. These disgusting pictures inspire me to throw the offending material in the trash regardless of the good work the charity may be doing.
One of my favorite pet charities is Best Friends in Kanab Utah. I like and support them not only because of the wonderful work they do at their sanctuary, but because all of their mailings are positive and upbeat. They show pictures of the dogs, cats, horses, etc. after they have been rehabilitated, cured, and often adopted into their forever homes. Their stories are about the positive work they do NOT about the evil perpetrated on animals by human kind. I think I am probably not alone in my feelings about this. 
One of the biggest offenders of delivering grotesque information is PETA. Although I believe in the work they are doing and the huge contribution they have made to the well-being of animals, their materials  including emails, are SO offensive, I toss them immediately. I truly believe that if they show me pictures of the happy, well cared for animals that they have helped, they will get a lot more of my dollars as well as others.
