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.

The first is lifeboats, right?

I don't recognise the others.

Yup, first is the lifeboats, my pet charity, who put well over 95% of their take back into lifeboats and their crews and all their people from the MD down are volunteers.

Ethiopaid is a medical charity which tries to undo the damage caused by FGM.

Gires- Gender Identity, Research and Education Society in which, for obvious reasons, I have a close personal interest. :o)

I also donate to RNLI and Ethiopaid, plus the Salvation Army. Oh, and the Air Ambulance, which is entirely funded by donations.

I got into Ethiopaid because my Meeting for Worship asked me to take that one on when we lived in London some years back and I'm still at it! :o)
