Mr. isaac kazi
WELL, CHARITIES MUST BE KNOWING THAT HUGE FUNDS ARE
' EARMARKED ' FOR CHARITABLE CAUSES BY GLOBAL CORPORATE GIANTS LIKE MICROSOFT , COCA-CLOA , CADBURY ETC ETC.
SO WHY NOT SOLICIT THE HELP OF THESE CASH RICH CORPORATE GIANTS RATHER THAN SOLICIT DONATIONS FROM THE PUBLIC WHO MAY OR MAY NOT BE ABLE OR WILLING TO DONATE ??? AND PUBLIC DONATIONS CAN PROVE MEAGRE OR PALTRY !!! SO WHAT IS DELAY ???

H says: There are more charities than there are cash rich companies and don't we the public have the right to be able to donate if we wish.
I work for a charity organisation and realise that not all people can afford to donate, but those that do make a difference.
Their donations may sometimes be small but they do help in the bigger picture.

JustSmile says: but charity is not all about money,
Some times giving a little of your time is better than giving money...sometimes its about giving toys, food, clothing or blood...other times its just about showing your support and raising awearness...
I have met so many people that think its all about money...its kinda heart breaking to see.

roddles says: I agree but what I find really difficult is the amount of requests I receive both in themail and by phone for donations. There appears to be a substantial increase in such requests in recent years. What has happened to our affluent society? When the 'super profit' mining taxes were proposed a separate levy of say 3% to 5% should also have been implemented for charities. Of course the actual funding should be carefully monitored

R I O says: WELL, RODDLES, THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER & THE POOR> POORER
SO, CHARITY ORGANISATIONS LIKE THE RED CROSS MUST 'ACT' WITH A
'VENGEANCE' >>> LOOK AT THE PLIGHT OF THE HAPLESS AFRICAN KIDS,
THEIR PARENTS !!!
SO I HAVE DULY SUGGESTED THE RED CROSS TO 'WAKE-UP' & START
RUNNING " B A K E R I E S " THRU'OUT THE AFRICAN CONTINENT THAT
WILL BAKE FRESH BREAD & DISTRIBUTE THIS BREAD " FREE OF ANY
COST WHATSOEVER " TO ALL THESE HAPLESS AFRICANS !!!
AND THE RED CROSS CAN ALSO PREPARE ' LENTIL GRAVIES / CURRIES '
TO BE EATEN WITH THE FREE BREAD !!! THIS LENTIL DISH WILL ALSO BE
FREE OF COST !!! SO YOU SEE RODDLES , CHARITIES MUST ACT N O W
AS I HAVE SUGGSTED ABOVE & NOT DEPEND ON CASH OR IN KIND
DONATIONS ALONE !!! THEY MUST NOW 'THINK' ON BEHALF OF THESE
HAPLESS POOREST & BAIL THEM OUT OF STARVATION , HUNGER,
POVERTY, SICKNESS & DISEASE , ILLITERACY !!!

Colliedog says: I agree with you Mr Kazi,corporate people can do much more to help those less fortunate instead of hoarding more money than they can spend in 3 lifetimes.Life is about giving in all areas not about greed.

PGS says: A lot do - it's just not always advertised.
Only the egotistical ones or ones that have a need to show they are doing something good (often to cover for something they've done wrong) make a fuss over it.
