"I didn't deserve a long thank you note because he doesn't know me"

I'd say if he doesn't know you well enough to thank you for a gift, then you don't know him well enough to send him future gifts.  Like upon his graduation from college, his engagement, his graduation from medical school, his wedding, the birth of his children, etc.

I'd lose any future mail I received from these people.

Sounds like it was mother's idea to send out announcements to everyone not the young mans. My guess would be that the young man wrote out generic thank you notes for his mothers announcements and that's why mama addressed the envelopes.  It was once tradition to send graduation announcements to all of the relatives, some are just not willing to give that one up.

Often, they send it to anyone they might know, have known, or could know. If everyone were to send $20, they'd be rich. They figure even if 20% of people send a gift, they're richer. I've often not gotten any note back, tho.
