We are all used to seeing logos like this
This week I heard of a friend who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. My thought and prayers are with her, and her family.
Then on the same day, a collection bag came through the letterbox, bearing the pink ribbon, and saying it is to help prevent breast cancer in Lithuania. But there was no UK registered charity number. I did not recognise the name of the organisation. I checked it out online. THIS came up. This outfit has nothing to do with authentic breast cancer charities such as THIS one.
It saddens me to think that some organisations are making profits out of the generosity of others, who believe they are genuinely helping. I could so easily have been ‘caught out’ by this one, and I suspect many others will be.
My current pile of ‘stuff for charity’ will just have to stay here a few more days, until I can get into Leicester to a bona fide charity shop.
