Begging letters

Post by Str8lolly on 26/6/2013, 14:25

Today I have come home to a load of mail wanting me to make donations to various charities. How on earth they can afford to send glossy pieces of paper out I have no idea. Must cost them a fortune.

What they all have in common now is the request to make a monthly direct debit from a credit/debit card. They dont want a £1, oh no, more like £5 here or £20 there!

I support our real 4th emergency service, the RNLI, without whom a lot of people would have died. I also make a yearly donation to the police widows and orphans fund. Seems to me that if these other charities can afford to send out glossy pieces of paper then they have more than enough money coming in and dont need money from me!

Call me a cynic, but most charities are probably ran as a profitable business.

I support several charities (military, animal and disabled) but will only make a yearly contribution as and when I want to.

I do often wonder how they can afford to send out so much junk mail/run TV ad's etc! I don't want my donations being spent on that.

almost all national charities are profit making organisations, most (if not all) should have their accounts available online, the salaries paid to the people at the top are shameful

one large animal charity only activates their advertising campaign when bank accounts drop below £10 Million, and even then will only come out if a film crew is present

I only support one charity, the British Red Cross, I've been a member for the last 20 years, and a first aid trainer for the last 10. Wink

You should run a business, and see how many requests for support you get! Surprised 

We do our best to support those who put a lot of effort in themselves - the local Carnival, and we give a level of service to local churches where we break even, but provide them with a means to make funds themselves.

We also support those who have supported us - premature baby charities, and Riding for the Disabled. we provide them with free engraving of trophies that they give to participants, as well as cash donations when we can afford it.

Our local police get support too, in the form of engraving for community projects such as the one repairing benches with the aid of local youths, and a local RPU officer hands out "bad driving awards" I made to local boy racers, along with a stern lecture which seems to help!!


and also these...



I just make a few when I can afford the material and time if anyone else is interested.
