Am tagging along with Frizztext’s TTT challenge today:I terminated the NaBloPoMo try-out as it was too testing and then when Typhoon Haiyan toppled the Philippines, the taste for trivia temporarily left.
Our weather is tame even when torrential and yet still we complain – until the televising of the tragedy effecting tens of thousands in Tacloban alone, tempers our complaints. I trust the Aid will reach the targets and our charity will not be trashed by scammers and top-heavy administration fees. Here are some tips for giving
1. Give to established charities via established outlets eg banks
2. Not over the phone – third-party telemarketers may be keeping a “big chunk” of your donation
3. Never send cash
4. Designate the disaster
The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) will make a televised appeal on Tuesday evening here in the UK.
