Dear Readers: Here is this week's Sound Off, about charitable contributions: "Whenever I make a contribution to a charitable cause, I get a thank-you letter, plus a bunch of return-address labels. I now have enough labels to last me a lifetime. I don't use many, as I only send cards to my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. These companies are wasting money by sending these out. With computers and other sources, people don't have use for all of these labels anymore. -- Jane in Cabot, Ark."
