I had a phone call from UNIDEV last week. Unidev is the charity which raises money for the training of Guide Dogs for the Blind (chiens d'aveugle). I don't give to charities usually simply because I wouldn't know where to stop. I would love to be able to give a little to everyone but I can't. I will donate to charities I see collecting on the street, if I believe they are bona fida but I have to admit I did weaken when I received a letter a few years back requesting help with the guide dogs. I usually send them a cheque annually with the dogs very much in my mind and heart.
Anyway, the Unidev charity called me friday thanking me for my support and asking if I could pay by standing order monthly instead of the one-off payment at present. Their reason being it would make their budget planning easier to sort out regarding future projects etc. Makes sense to me.
Question is, do you give to charity(ies) ?
