multiple collections

Unfortunately for my wallet we have an increasing number of collectors each Friday morning in the city – over 25000 now registered with the Charities Commission. There was a hullabaloo a few months back about two charities collecting / competing on the same day, and it seems it’s happened again today.

These two charities ‘borrowed’ the original pink ribbon concept and give away white and red ones. The white ribbons to raise awareness for ending violence against women, and red ones to raise awareness of HIV/Aids.

It’s a tough call but I chose white. I have always been picky with who I donate to because if I gave to every charity, I would be a pauper! So now I only give to those who, in my opinion, use the money for worthwhile research and support programmes and activities.
