    Wife and I purchased and donated a saddle for a charity auction that's happening in a few weeks. All the donated items were on display at a local drinkery and guess what? Got a call from the one running this thing asking if we'd donate another saddle because, "...it's already on the posters." HH

    Edited to add: The saddle was stolen from the bar.

    I think they owe you an explanation other than it is on the flyer.

    How important is this charity to you?

    I don't understand.

    You donated a saddle, they have it on the poster. What is the problem?

    Being charitable should make you feel good, not cause stress. Don't ever give them anymore ever again.

    Send them a bill for the first one and see what happens.

    Yeah i don't understand either. Unless they put a second one on the posters assuming he'd donate another.

    It’s already on the posters? Like they promised to give away 2 saddles even though they only have 1? Are they bad at math that only requires counting on one finger, or is this a common tactic to guilt people into giving more? Kinda sounds like the latter, to me.

    I should add, if it really is their mistake, it’s confounding that they would ask you to fix it by any means.

    Maybe Fullclip has the first saddle, and he's riding a magnificent horse due west into the setting sun?
