The state of my finances has forced me to make contact with a number of charitable organisations to let them know I have stopped my automatic payments to them. I just can’t afford them anymore. I felt like a cop out though I am pleased to say that no-one gave me a hard time – they were all in fact very understanding.
There are another few charities which I can’t in good conscience stop supporting right now when the work they do is so crucial. They’re organisations that I know do great work, provide excellent value for money and I’ve supported them for many years. I do worry that even though each contribution is a modest amount it is still more than I can really afford each month right now though hopefully all things monetary will improve soon.
If anyone is in healthier shape financially and is in the market for a good cause, you might consider one of those below that I’ve had to stop supporting. All are reputable and their records show an excellent return for donations (i.e low administrative costs). The websites are linked to the logos so click away and find out more.
