Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

I have been on both sides of this coin... and I find Ms. Postell's article irritating... this isn't "giving freebies to charities" this is supporting non profits that impact YOUR BUSINESS community, this is supporting your base. ...this isn't rocket science; As a business owner, if one doesn't know how to manage expectation or say no after your "giving budget" has been depleted one may need to look at how they are mismanaging other areas of their business equation.
You are being approached because you have made a good name for yourself and the restaurant ... it's the no good deed goes unpunished theory LOL BUT in the best scenario. If you are a desired commodity people will call... I always look at these requests as a compliment ... It takes me one minute to interrupt the caller or reply to the email noting "our charitable giving has been exhausted for this year, so sorry please feel free to email me info regarding your non profit so we can keep you in mind next year". DONE... OR sometimes it presents a magical opportunity to engage regions the business is not usually represented in. We have found our selection of charitable giving is a marketing strategy that is a win win for all involved
