Can I ask why that is the case? I don't mind it at all, I'm just curious why you are not able to un-enroll.
(Believe me, any small percentage is enough to help, but if this just a scam it's illegal.)

It's definitely not a scam, it's something that Ask has been doing for the last couple years. Not sure why there isn't a way to un-enroll though. You are welcome to contact Customer Support and see if there is anything else they can do about it. http://help.ask.com

How it looks is not what I have on my mind.

Why do you want to? It donates money to a good cause.

I decline to answer because I don't want to bad mouth them till I confirm what I've read.

Why would you want it off? For every answer you give, Ask.com donates 25 cents to Susan G. Komen.

I am concerned with the small percentage of their income that Susan Komen reportedly ACTUALLY spends on cancer.
Report as
So you would like to stop supporting their group? I respect that decision. I would contact a moderator from Ask.com or don't answer any questions until the campaign is over. It will be over shortly, once they meet there quota.
Report as
DeepDark, that's the exact reason that I do not participate in it.
Report as
Someone should post a question like " What % of money donated to the Susan G. Komen actually gets spent on cancer research or rehabilitation?"
Report as
The percentage is so small that it should embarrass the Komen org. Don't get me wrong, any donation fighting against cancer is admirable, but there are many executives of the Komen org. getting ungodly huge paychecks. Research the org. on Google.

Yes. I plan to donate to Women's Cancer Research, but through a more direct route. I want what I donate, by whatever means, to go where I have donated it.

I lost my wife to cancer 9 years ago. I donate my time to the cancer center of my local hospital as well as blankets, wigs, hats, scarves and sometimes just a hand to hold during chemo. If you have time, you could become a driver for chemo and radiation patients, just to get them to treatments and then back home. I badger all of my local and not so local companies and large corporations for blankets and hats with their logo on them for the cancer center. There are many ways to make a "donation" to cancer and the people that are afflicted.

I'm sorry for your lost Ancient_Hippy. Your efforts will never go un-noticed. Doing what you do could give someone just enough hope to hold on to life. Thank you.

I'm also sorry for your loss Ancient Hippy. I lost my Significant Other to Hodgkin's Lymphoma, 15 years ago. 7 years ago, I was also diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma Stage 4B. Odds of both of us getting it were so high the Doctors didn't even test me for a year. I won that War though.
You cited many wonderful ways people can help those with Cancer and I for one appreciate all the help you give those battling the big C. Thank you.

You see, things like this, people coming together, things like this keep my hope going strong for the growth of humanity. There's still a few good people out there. Awesome contribution to the post Lynne. I'm sorry for your loss, and It is excellent you survived the encounter. I don't have much experience with cancer, or anything plaguing my family. My prayers go out to you both tonight.
Report as
A rose to you survivors and those who have lost loved ones to cancer. A thorn to those who live an extravagant lifestyle paid for by someone who is desperately trying to help.... It's heartbreaking....;(
Report as
Thanks to all, I appreciate your kindness. Lynne, so sorry for your loss and congrats for your personal victory, I know it wasn't easy.
Smoovalicious, you are right, just a small conversation like this can make people think of ways that they can help. Just a small effort can make the difference to someone battling the big C.
Stevechrisman, very well said, thank you.
