Businesses exist to fill the consumer's need. If they no longer are an effective option for the consumer, then they will either go out of business, or modify their business plan to be viable again. Local charities can be supported by individual donations. I would much rather choose who to donate to myself than over-pay to subsidize a business's charity choices.
