Large charity organizations send free address labels to people on their donation lists, including the March of Dimes and St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, which assist children suffering from serious health problems. Charities dedicated to curing cancer, saving animals and helping disabled veterans also send free labels.
Animal lovers can donate to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or The Humane Society to receive labels featuring cute animals. People donating to the American Heart Association often get free labels. The War Amps provides free holiday labels to individuals in Canada in hopes of receiving donations for programs that provide counseling and artificial limbs to child amputees. In a similar vein, Disabled Veterans of America successfully uses free labels to create awareness for its charitable programs. Most charities are able to send free labels to donors at minimum expense, and many receive substantial donations in return.
Giving away free labels also creates goodwill and brings about lasting relationships between the charities and its donors. Some charities rent or exchange donor lists with other organizations, which results in donors receiving numerous labels from multiple charities. People who wish to receive free address labels from charities can get on a donation list by choosing a charity and submitting name and address information. Making any size donation is another way to receive regular mailings.
