Roarprawn reckons Kidscan should be canned.
I don’t think it’s the only charity of which that could be said and part of the problem is there are too many of them.
It starts with an itch and before it can get scratched someone’s formed a committee, found a name, created a brand, registered an incorporated society, claimed charitable status, set up an office, found staff, designed a letterhead . . . and is looking for money to pay for it all.
How much is left for the itch after all that?
Too often not enough which is why a bit of a cull is in order, or at least a straggle muster to bring some of the strays into the herd.
For example, if there’s a problem with hungry, unshod and underclothed children, wouldn’t established charities like Red Cross or Save the Children be able to help without incurring the overheads and other costs of establishing and maintaining a new organisation?
