Some donors write a short "your welcome" in reply, or tell the donor coordinator to wish the recipient well, etc. I'm not saying she's evil or anything, just that I would have handled it differently I think. I tend to be very concerned about the feelings of others, which is why I spent a long time trying to say just the right things in my letter to let her know how much we appreciated her gift. Maybe I am jaded, but I do think for some number of donors this is financial transaction and doesn't hold the sweet emotional feelings we recipients are hoping for. Still, it was an amazing gift.
