Makes me sad that in this day and age I cannot afford to buy an item from a charity shop because the price has been hiked up because its M&S or what ever. I am at the poorest point of my life and the whole original ethos of charities helping the poor has more or less gone.. it makes me mad!!
When does a charity stop being a charity and becomes a business?
Should charities effectively have tens, if not hundreds of thousands in the bank and invested? Any charity should technically be running almost on empty when it comes to funds in the bank, surely a sign that they are doing exactly what they profess to be doing - helping the needy.
I wonder if its time to change charities status's .. when they stop being such and more so a well oiled business making serious money..
Used to love charity shops.. now I go in and browse looking at price tags and all I mutter under my breath majority of the time is *forfucksake*!!!
