Charity seems to be a pretty good business for some
I'm actively looking for work in the United Kingdom for a while now, and it's quite odd to see, that some people made a business out of charity fundraising. It's absolutely unclear, how these people can pay their fundraising activists 7 pounds an hour or even more, if the money they collect should be used for that particular cause they're supposed to support.
For whatever reason, the number of fundraising firms is growing as we speak, I couldn't check a page on Gumtree without running into one. Sure as it is, some of them are legit, and their activists doesn't work all day, but still I believe that the hourly rate is higher than reasonable, and people should start to think about it.
Don't take me wrong, I do believe that supporting the right cause and being charitable is important, but unless you help someone directly, there's no way to tell if you did the right thing, or just shovel the money out the window.
