Got approached for the 30 millionth time today by street fundraisers.... I find the whole thing a bit crap. When you sign up to give to a charity, you give most of your money for the first year or two to the business that employs these young kids...who themselves get paid bugger all. But then on the other hand, the charities have no choice cause hiring chuggers is the best way to fundraise. I've worked in the Ngo sector and some are good, some are bad. There's lots of inefficiencies and too many charities to help. I can't help but think if loads of charities amalgamated, lots more money would make it to the cause as we'd be paying for less ceos, hr depattments, admin and other overheads. I suspect we'd also have less need for chuggers as there would be less organisations putting their hands out... Anyone else here feel the same way?
