NSPCC Wasted Donations
The people who support the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and gave money to their cause are extremely unhappy about how the organization just recently wasted their funds. Who can blame them? The NSPCC just frittered away Â£25,000 on brochures and postage to thank their 2,000 donors.
Each brochure was in a cardboard box that carried four first-class stamps, bearing Â£1.92-worth of postage, and carrying a thank-you letter from Andrew Rosenfeld, chairman of the campaign.
The group received Â£250 million in donations for their Full Stop campaign launched by Prince Andrew and Prime Minister Tony Blair and celebrities like Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kylie Minogue, and Cilla Black all pitched in to promote the campaign.
Who knows why a two-pound brochure was necessary? I figure if the people already support the campaign, that already means they know what it’s all about, so there’s no need to send them more materials on the group. While thanking those who helped out is always a nice thing to do, they’d be doing everyone a favor by actually putting the money to good use. And let’s not get into the environmental impact caused by producing the materials for the thank-you packages and shipping.
