What's the Significance of $19 per Month?

Several charities (Shriners Children's Hospital, Wounded Warriors, etc) are soliciting donations of $19 a month ($228 per year). What is the significance of that amount? Why not $20 a month?

I suspected it was like our custom of pricing things like gasoline with a nine in the third decimal place.

matt led the charge, and YoYo before that.

It's all in the marketing, not that contributing to worthwhile charities is a bad thing.

It's $19 so that you have that dollar remaining to spend on the bucket of ice.
