Geographic ingratitude

Tom Batiuk's Funky Winkerbean.  

Notice the little globe in the travel agency.  That's the map part of this map-related Funky Winkerbean strip by Tom Batiuk.  Talk about ungrateful! This imaginary travel agent (because are there any travel agencies anymore?) offers an amazing travel package to a fascinating location that is very much in keeping with the sports theme of the charity, and the titular character there dismisses it like the slimy cretinous slug that he is.   

The proper response here would have been: "Holy Kenya!, Really!?  That's an amazingly generous offer! I can't tell you how thrilled we are to have such a valuable donation for our raffle.  We'll save that prize for last.  By the way, how in the world have you managed to stay in business all these years?"
