Interesting article about the pros and cons of raising money for charity while
having an exciting holiday. You know the sort of thing: "Will you sponsor my daughter, she's cycling to the top of Everest to raise money for cancer?"
I always say no. I'd rather all my donation goes to charity rather than half of it subsidising someone;s "gap experience". But this article does lay out the pros and cons in a thoughtful way. After skimming it I might conclude
If you are a fairly affluent young person who as had lots of holidays you can b** off and get a part time job and fund the trip yourself before you start asking for donations. Or get your parents to pay the costs.
If you are a young person who comes from a poorer background I might agree.
But generally the best way to support a charity is a direct debit, even if it is a small one. This gives charities the steady predictable income that allows them to plan and operate effectively.
