`TIS BETTER TO GIVE IF YE RECEIVE

Great. Corporate America downsized with a frenzy and left already cash-strapped charities with the task of caring for the millions who were made jobless by its "bottom-line" tactics. And now, it is telling those charities that they will have to "give something back" if they want donations ("Giving--and getting something back," Social Issues, Aug. 28).

Go after the churches next, guys. Don't give those cathedrals and chapels a nickel unless they see to it that their parishioners wear, use, drink, or eat your brands.
