I do not agree that a six figure sum is justifiable for a charity CEO and … 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.

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/

Free booklet from Macmillan called Love your lady parts. Spot it early sort it out. A phone number is required but they do not share your details with a third party.

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."

Braving the shave might not be for everyone but every one that does brave the shave helps support families and loved ones when they need it most.

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..

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.

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!!

I think the tax issue should be firmly directed to the politicians in … 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.

Hi!
Just to answer the questions...! The letters are being handled by a company called gem for their charity of the year Macmillan! (hence the crossroads web address as it's done internally to save costs on web hosting). It's not on the main Macmillan site yet, but has been featured on the official Macmillan Facebook pages. All the profit goes to Macmillan, gem makes no money from this at all! Hope that helps, but feel free to ask any more questions!

I am always wary of sites who pose as charities and I looked on the macmillan site and found nothing about this. The web address is also a bit odd. If it is genuine I will deffo get a couple but not convinced at the mo.



After searching on Macmillan's website I can't find any reference to this whatsoever! You'd think this would be on there somewhere if it were genuine wouldn't you? Also if you hit 'home' it does nothing but if you delete the address and just leave crossroads.the-gem.com/ you get IIS7 page which is something to do with web hosting. If anyone can cofirm this is legiot I'll def give it a go.
