As a business owner, I never give donations in response to a letter or an email. I find it much harder to say no to someone in person.
Another "no-no" is for the person who asked for the donation to be the person redeeming the donation. I've seen this happen twice and it's just plain tacky even IF you "won" it fair and square in the silent auction.
