I'm sure you've all been stopped by "Charity Muggers" (what a horrible cynical phrase that is, sorry!) in the past, or have pretended to talk on your mobile/listen to your ipod/not care in order to avoid them. Well, I want to promise that this post will not be the blog version of that!
I just wanted to let you know about a way to give a donation to charity that me and Anders have been involved with for a couple of years. The concept is simple: just donate 1% of your income to charity.
Do it through the One Percent Scheme and it will be donated to smaller grassroots charities which have less experience in fundraising, but do an amazing job on the ground. The One Percent Scheme is run by a group of friends in London, who are also friends of ours. They do a brilliant job of getting involved with the charities, learning about the issues and seeing where the money goes, so you can be sure your 1% is well used.
Anyway, if you're interested, or just want to read a bit more about it or find out what causes we support, then follow this link:
A new charity which we can vote on whether to support or not is The Choir With No Name:
I think I'll be voting for them.
