I called number back - The Smith Company - they telemarket for magazine et al. Requested my number be removed, and they very politely said it would be off in about 2 days. Finally!
Non profit organizations are STILL not to call DNC households. It is illegal and they can still be fined, report it to fcc and hold them accountable. We were paid to harrass you until we recieved a yes!!!
I tried to call this number back and it said to enter account number? I was like I dont even know who called how am I suppose to know the account number.
Another long silence followed by "Hello? Hello?" on the voice message.
This number has shown up on my caller ID for the past 5 days at least three (3) times per day. I finally picked up and there was no-one there. I called the number and it came up as Donor Care Center....
They have called my house every day for the last four or five days. I finally picked up the phone. Nobody on the other line. I waited...nothing.
Several calls yesterday. 5 calls so far today. Nobody ever there.
I tried calling their number and got a recorded message allowing me to be put on a do not call list. I followed the prompt and now will wait for 30 days while they process my request. Hopefully the calls will stop!
Just started getting calls about 3x/day for the past few days - 4/1/08. Caller ID says Donor Care Ctr. Doesn't leave a message.
Keeps calling. We did not answer. Do you find that if you answer, and tell them not to call, that you are on Do Not Call registry --- do that actually stop calling?
constant 3 times daily phone calls. finally picked up this morning and as soon as i heard the person say my name i told them to stop calling me, i am on the do not call list, i am not interested in whatever they have to say or whatever they are selling, nor would i ever be interested.
When i answered no one responded. I do not wait for someone to pickup at the other end and I am on the National and State "Do Not Call List". I think these people may have a listing as non-profit.
I am also on the Do Not Call List, however this organization may be skirting the rules by posing as a non profit charitable, and who are exempt from the restrictions. However, one can always uses *60 which blocks the most recent inbound calling number from calling your number again.

Was called at 4:18 PM EST on March 5, 2008 on my private cell phone which is on the Federal DNC list. Rang two times, but when I picked up, there was no one there (they hung up on me). Reverse lookup reveals:
"(216) 453-1574 is a land line based in Cleveland, OH. The registered service provider is Global Crossing Local Servcies, Inc**. Detailed listing information is not available."
2 calls came through answering machine. We don't answer calls, don't have caller ID, do have Free *69 to look up numbers when no message is left. This place called several times today, 2/27/08. No message left.
