    I did not realise there were some many out there that donated on a regular basis:thumbsup:

    Banned

    wonder how many people are telling the truth....

    I pay each month to the children of murdered police officers

    not a penny


    although making jellybelly feel good is classed as charity work :-D

    I'll start donating to charities when they stop paying students £10 an hour to shove clipboards in my face.

    That, and not paying their execs £65k. If they cared that much ,they'd be happy doing charity work for free, or for expenses at most.

    nothing

    I give £5 a month to NSPCC, don't even miss it when it's direct debit - if I had to make the effort to give it I would probably think of something I need the money for :roll:

    Every now and then I get a letter asking me to increase it to £12 a month but I would miss that when it comes out and I always worry with charities how much of my donation goes towards 'administrative' costs :thinking:

    These are the kind of charity I like doing, or the ones where you make up parcels. I saw some cat food reduced before and bought loads of tins and dropped them off at the PDSA.

    At least you know 100% is going to the cause, that way :thumbsup:

    monthly to sightsavers int

    sightsavers.org/?gc…nog

    Wow, really :w00t: think I will have to look into it all a bit more, if anyone's got any good ideas?

    When I first started donating I just did it because it's such a worthy cause, but I did always wonder ...

    and where do you get your statistics from then Grex:whistling:

    I also give a few quid each month to Cancer Research by Direct Debit.

    Also give MS Society around £15 every 3 to 4 months.

    And I always give stuff to the local charity shops every few months as well.

    They should produce a yearly (at least) account of incomings and outgoings.

    50% is perhaps a bit high, but the amount WILL be substantial.

    2006 NSPCC audit:

    nspcc.org.uk/doc…pdf

    We give monthly-£35 in total-my OH is always moaning about it-but we have a chinese take out every week-and its less a week than that costs so i feel i can afford it at the moment.

    I must admit i do get fed up with them ringing and asking for more money-i find it hard to say no-although i do-but often find them a bit condesending.

    We give to cancer research, action aid, nspcc, scope, Salvation Army, Lifeboats, WWF, Nspca & Local hospice by direct debit-mostly £3 or £4 each.

    hat is very generous of you, but if I had that much to donate I would definitely find a more straightforward way of helping one case, like sponsering a child or something?

    Has anyone had one where they send you a pair of baby's socks and expect you to return them, along with a donation? My Mum told me she got one like this twice, as well as one sending her a sewing kit as a present and asking for a donation

    we made a donation to the orangutan foundation documented on bbc2's orangutan diaries and will do so regulary, my kids love it.

    oh and im running in the race for life for cancer research in june, link in profile

    Never heard of this one Mrs.Z:?

    I gave £15 a month to Barnardo's, until i was made redundant

    I take stuff to the charity shop near me every month after a clearout and im also doing the race for life in July 2009! I prefer to help out local schools etc

    No I don't. I used to donate to the local hospice but then I couldn't afford it and gave up. Sometimes I feel bad about it as you never know when you may need one of these charities.

    I give £5 a month to NSPCC. Also doing the race for life in June!! And i do alot of volunteering for a charity shop also. So tend to donate there too.

    because we are both lucky enough to have jobs and have been given a break in life-many others aren't so lucky.

    £2 a month DD to cancer research x

    The money to action aid is a sponsorship-it was for a child-but he grew into an adult (as you do !) and so they wrote and said would we carry on and the money goes to help the village on a general basis.

    I just feel if i had a sick child, deaf child, parent with illness - or i myself was ill and couldn't afford help - someone who could would help.

    My best friend died of cancer at a young age, and another close friends husband has it, as did my aunt who died of cancer at 56 - anything i can do to stop a family going through what i know they all went through/are going through-i feel i would like to do.

    My OH has a debilitating illness which has really brought things home to us too-and i feel if i can help someone be better for something that i don't miss-i should be doing it !
