I have a client who knows my home address. Her idea of giving me a Christmas gift is to make a donation using my name and address. I then receive a card from the charity telling me I have been "honored". I don't feel "honored". I feel angry that she is using my name and address to make her donations to a charity that I don't like. I have asked her not to give out my address, but she continues to do so.

The charity sells my name and address and I wind up with a lot of junk mail all asking me for donations. I have called the charity to ask to be taken off of their mailing list but they don't remove my name.

Is there a polite way to tell her that I really don't appreciate this "honor" and to stop making donations in my name?

I don't want to cause a fight. She is a good client. I just don't appreciate this behavior.

What possess people to think they should be making donations in someone else's name/address and that this is a good idea?

Give a small donation in her name to the NRA, FOP, and a few others that are active in solicitations and against her values.

Tell her you moved and your new address is (insert address here)

Or, you are in the process of moving and are changing all of your mail to (insert fake PO box here) for the time being so no mail gets lost.
