A nice idea for yourself or an excellent gift for someone else is to adopt an animal to help preserve the species in the wild and to protect their habitat. WWF and Sky are doing a promotion where you can adopt a jaguar for £36 up front or £3-a-month, and Sky will match what you put in. You get a lovely cuddly jaguar toy and updates about the animal and WWF get a decent donation to help with their valuable work. Don't forget Gift Aid too!

expensive cuddly toy


The cuddly toy is a bonus, the point is about preserving the habitats of jaguars and other species that live in the rain forests.

Yeah, I know but obviously it's better if you're a Sky TV customer as it's doubling your donation

Whether you believe in the cause or not it's hardly a 'hot deal' is it?

I think it is as these make excellent presents and with gift aid WWF get around £80 when it only costs the buyer £36.

Expensive, but you are donating to charity. I just wish all charities fully disclose how much is going into administration and the managements pockets. This is one reason I don't donate to charities anymore. I've only given in a few times though and felt guilty afterwards.

It is all in the annual reports: http://www.wwf.org.uk/what_we_do/about_us/annual_report_2010/ Every organisation needs a certain amount of administration to function, otherwise it would have no control of itself and would not meet its objectives.

Can you specify which Jaguar? I'd like and XK-R for £36 please and they can keep the cuddly toy!

thanks for the link

amazed to see that WWF UK took £18M in donations in 2010 yet spent £9M on admin costs and £12M on salaries.

So basically, the donations dont even cover the running costs.

They made £9M from legacies otherwise they would have made a loss.

A real eye opener! Glad I dont give to them anymore.

Their income was £58M and so £9M spent on admin is 16%. Salaries includes the people doing the conversation work!
