Boston, MA – Ahhh, the Holidays. It’s the perfect time of year to play our new game, “Email For Fun!” We posted this ad and it was flagged for removal within eight minutes, but not before we received some really positive thoughts from people. Our ad is in black, and the emails we received are in blue:
Salvation Army Santas
With only 1 week left until Christmas, we are in desperate need of Salvation Army Santas. We have several storefront locations currently unoccupied where we need dependable bell-ringers to assist with our year-end push. You will be required to wear a Santa hat and ring a bell for anywhere from 4 to 8 hours, however, you will be paid handsomely. Here is the breakdown of pay: You get to keep 35% of whatever you get donated during your shift. That’s right, at the end of the shift, you and the shift manager will witness the money count, you get your 35% and 60% will be kept by us (i.e. “the house.”) 5% will be given to area charities or whatever. This is the largest commission percentage you will find in this industry, so these positions won’t last long. People are very eager to give money at this time of year, and as a dedicated team of charity professionals, we should be very eager to take it.
Serious Inquiries only.

“If that’s your idea of donation funds to charity, that’s disgusting. I hope the police are investigating.”
“You and your team of “charity professionals” are clearly doing something illegal.”
