Charity Begins At Home [Mar. 19th, 2014|10:13 am]
Tony Grist
The RSPB sicced a very slick professional fundraiser onto me last night and I'm still fuming. I hate it that the charities have turned into corporate Goliaths- with swanky London HQs and highly rewarded CEOs. I can see why they've done it but I very much preferred them when they were Davids.

I was spinning off into a fantasy about how we could make money by turning the farm into a wildlife sanctuary and soliciting charitable donations and it was all coming along very nicely when Ailz shut me down because my mother was taking me seriously and getting agitated.

Yeah, it means those things here as well.

It also means begging for charity. The big charities hire people who accost you in the street and carry on like you're their long lost cousin and then try to get you to give money to the charity. It's a foul business.

And most of those doing it are students up to the ears in loan debt who you can't blame for trying to earn a bob or two, which makes it feel even worse when you say no! The entire things is premised upon using a guilt trip.

There needs to be an investigation of the whole sordid charity industry- for such it has become.

I feel the same about call centres. Love the sinner, hate the sin, if you see what I mean.
