Many of these charities have CEOs on 6 figure sums.. cold
I think that this is a harsh point to make. Here is a quote from the Oxfam blog which I think sums it up pretty well. I suspect you will not see it the same way
"As former Oxfam CEO Barbara Stocking pointed out on Radio 4 ... [the NGO] .... has a big job by any standards: multitasking between running a 700 shop retail chain, managing 5,000 employees and 20,000 volunteers, a £360m budget and ensuring the safety of staff in some of the riskiest places on earth. It doesn’t always work, as Stocking recalled – for a start, people get killed (on her watch, in Afghanistan)."....For an organization like Oxfam, the challenge is to find the right balance between duty (keeping salaries relatively low in the context) and effectiveness (understanding that the external market has an effect on the likely talent you are having to attract/retain from within and, more importantly, from outside the sector). Are the bashers really saying such a balance is impossible?"
Here is a link to the full article which is worth a quick readhttps://oxfamblogs.org/fp2p/ok-so-how-much-should-charity-bosses-be-paid-plus-your-chance-to-vote/
I do not agree that a six figure sum is justifiable for a charity CEO and never will. I give my charitable donations directly to the people who need help (I understand that you can't do that with some good causes) so for example I give catering size coffee tins and bags of sugar to homeless charities over the winter to provide hot drinks. 100% of that goes to the homeless.

Yes there are different ways of looking at it. I actually think that what you do is really decent but as you say you can't always do that. I suppose given that most do buy Christmas Cards their money night as well go to the cause. What I really object to is the 10 pence a pack going to charity when people wrongly assume a fairer percentage.

Great freebie....maybe not something that many people would vote hot.....but as someone who never bothered with a smear test untill a friend told me to book one then found out that I was one stage away from developing full stage cancer..........loads of horrible hospital visits but I'm I'm now all clear. Yaaaaaaaa lady parts are very important xx
"There's never any graffiti in the hotel. Although in the Gents a couple of weeks a go I did see someone had drawn a lady's part. Quite detailed. The guy obviously had talent."

If you are going to shave your hair off, do it properly otherwise it's just a buzz cut, so many I see are left at grade 3-4.
I wouldnt deem it a sponsored "achievement" if there is lots of hair, the term "shaved" in the main refers to use of a RAZOR for a close cut not merely scissors & tidying up by clippers, otherwise it's like asking for a cup of tea & just receiving hot water in a cup, ..half-assed.

It was a proper skinhead or nothing for me, ...& that used to include taking off the eyebrows for a laugh too! ..(regularly) so close a cut that my head & my wooly hat used to act like velcro & stick even when i'd been tumbling through snow..

I find this offensive....brave the shave?
Oh your precious hair!!! What a sacrifice shaving it off...Not
What about people losing their hair who have no choice but to shave it off.

Ordered this on 27 August, arrived on 1 September. Nothing really of value in the pack.
And later they will keep writing to you asking you to send them the money you have collected at your event.

Hate Macmillan. They did nothing for my mum when she died from cancer earlier this year.

All they are good at is publishing leaflets and making glossy commercials.

I would never give them a penny. After my mother died we donated to cancer research uk.


sorry to hear about your loss x

Great link, thank you for posting.

For those who think this is an Amazon PR stunt, it's not. Amazon pay up to 5% to websites who link to them. MacMillan have just applied to Amazon associates and are taking the commission as charity income. I'm not sure if that will make more people use this or not - but I hope it does!!
Bushes
I think the tax issue should be firmly directed to the politicians in power who have allowed it and continue to allow it. Ask them why.
It's obvious why. Corporation tax discourages foreign investment, so any loopholes in such encourage foreign investment.

The right thing to do would be to scrap corporation tax altogether to level the playing field for homegrown businesses, but unfortunately that would be electoral suicide because the public are dumb and think that corporation tax is some sort of magical free money from the sky which doesn't affect their own pockets.
Thanks for posting OP, I wouldn't have known about this if it was buried deep in the other, but also worthy RNLI post. To mirror other's posts, Cancer has hit far too many times to close family members, some good outcomes, others bad and I just hope one day that they can some how stop this unscrupulous killer from doing so much damage to so many people's lives.
