So you Back the Blue, you hand your pocket change through the car window to the firefighters passing the boot around at intersections – but what about all those calls and letters you get, asking for donations for this firemen’s charity, and that policeman’s ball? You don’t know whether to be annoyed or moved.
As of this month, you can get help on line in deciding where and whether to give to those kinds of charities. The Texas attorney general’s office has launched a web-based tool that lets you figure out who’s legit and who’s not in the world of law-enforcement telephone solicitations. Just go to the LETSA page (what program could succeed without a catchy acronym?) on the attorney general’s web site.
