Do you ask for donations for your birthday?
So, my birthday is coming up and I don't really need or want anything. I guess that's sort of what happens after you hit a certain age, you buy what you want and don't wait around for others to get you something. So instead of getting gifts I'd like it if people I know would just donate to a charity instead of going out and buying something. Am I being a jerk? What are your thoughts on asking for charity donations instead of getting a gift?
