Generosity knows no bounds!

Raising money for a charitable cause is a slow cumulative process, but very satisfying nevertheless. People donate spontaneously by putting a hand in purse or pocket and giving loose change (sometimes referred to as shrapnel).
Sometimes people go away to think about it, and a donation arrives by cheque or banknotes.
Others, happy to use a credit card, will go to an online giving site and frequently donate substantial amounts. For the Children in Syria Appeal we’ve seen donations of

£100 and £150 ……. but when I saw one recently for £1000, I was simply left stunned.

  1. Congratulations! As for the sign, I would be mildly concerned about what caused so many significant dents in it and the likelihood it might do something similar to me.

    • Thanks David. As you wade thigh deep, I look out from the picture framed kitchen window over Auckland harbour. After 4 nights camping I’ve just had the luxury of of a real bed in the house of friends.
