I’d like to send my united way donation directly to the United Way Volunteer Email Education Program.

Why? A huge email meant to inform our company on some United Way even was sent out to our entire local mailing list (I figure between 400 and 700 people). It took down our corporate email system (based out of our corporate hub in St. Paul) for nearly an hour. Following this event, I’ve received no less than 15 16 UW emails. Some informing you not to open the big email mistake message, and still others about subsequent planed UW events. I think I’ve spent more time reading internal UW spam in the last few days than actual work related emails. Give me a break, I already donated.
