letters of reccomendation

Most of the grad schools I have looked at say that the person giving you the reccomendation must personally upload it, but if you are applying to multiple schools, is it really okay to make them have to upload the same letter for multiple applications? I feel incredibly guilty asking someone to take the time to have to write a letter and then to have to go online and have to upload it a bunch of times, it seems like such a hassle. Is there some sort of database where a reccomender could upload it once and have it assured that it was them who uploaded it, but then for me to send it to multiple schools? How do other people deal with imposing that responsibility on three to five reccomenders depending on the program?

I am interested in teaching and am hoping to go to a UC for grad school in education.

    They're used to this, it's not a big deal uploading something ~10 times. For so many reasons, you cannot upload the letter for them.
