Copy and save the text (what was posted, to your Hard Drive) as the paper will very likely dump it in a couple of weeks.

My first reaction upon seeing this was to say ‘Wrong!”.

The headline is misleading, but the end result is the same. You’re just funnelling your Christmas Cards through the American Red Cross...
