If you ask someone to donate…

…please make sure you spell their name correctly.

I recently received a letter in the mail asking me to make a contribution. I am no stranger to name misunderstanding and manipulation, as my last name has been mangled many times over. However, this wasn’t my last name, it was my business name.

I created this business name to avoid this kind of trouble. I thought I escaped from the years of teasing and torment I endured as a kid by creating “next STEPH”.

Let’s get focused. I make sure that I have my clients’ names spelled correctly. I know no one is perfect, but I can’t see why people can’t take 2 seconds to double check someone ‘s name and company before sending out a request.
