Goofus, Gallant and You
Always say "Thank you"
I read an interesting article recently about whether or not a thank you from a nonprofit matters to the donor. But as Gallant would remind us, it's always right to say thanks.
While a donor may say he or she doesn't need a thank you, it's hard to imagine a situation when (assuming it is appropriate) it would hurt. Isn't it a pleasant surprise when the cashier genuinely thanks you for your purchase (not just the canned "thankyouforyourpurchase" that is mumbled with no eye contact or enunciation)?
