Glatlol: And far play to you Annie.

Am having my hair dyed blue next week in work for shave or dye, wanted to get it shaved but not allowed as I deal with customers.


Having a bit of a tough time at minute and thought it would be an idea to focus on helping or doing something for others.

Fair play to you and blue sounds sexy

I did it last year for sunshine house in Dublin as a local family lived there with their baby till she passed away.

This year I want to do it for something more personal to me.

Yeah, can get that...why I am doing it for something that affects our family...I know charities took a bashing recently but either way there are a lot of great ones doing a lot of great work that goes unsung and they desperately need funding...

I agree, great organisations. But what do you think of executive salaries in charities?

My opinion is if you are working for a charity you should not expect to make above a certain wage. The money raised should go to the cause it is intended for.

Some fund raisers, are paid their salary on a percentage, thus the more they raise the bigger their wage, but likewise the less successful they are the lower their wage.
This works for charities. thumbs up

Most who work for a voluntary/chartable organisation get paid the proper rate of pay depending on their position and job specification, as it should be. And many many are underpaid, those who work in the voluntary sector, do above and beyond their job description, without extra pay, now is that fair then?

I need a new suit laugh

People are entitled to a fair wage, but the salaries some charity executives are on, I dunno Witty, it goes against my sense of morality and ethics.

What radio station do you listen to? laugh

On topic, if I was fundraising for charity I'd try to choose a local one. On a side note, my local GAA club ran a big fundraiser for Temple St hospital a couple of years ago and they advised us to actually buy a piece of equipment rather than sending them a cheque as the majority of it would just get swallowed up in administration costs.
