There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Of course the already biggest charities would win rather than other smaller charities who could really have done with the money. For those 3 charities that amount of money is nothing, it’s really a shame people didn’t take the oppertunity to highlight less well known charities in need.
plenty of money about ,charities are amoung biggest finiancial players out there, they have shed loads of dosh, they could try being charitable with each other rather than competing
