        I repeat. I agree with Ian1208. For some reason it was moved to another thread.

          I think most of us will be aware, to various degrees, of various charities in and around the areas of LOS we know and pretty much any of them would be a worthy cause.

          So whilst I agree the Camillian Center is such a worthy cause, they have already been the recipients of funds from here in the past. So if donating again, rather than 'spreading the love', we might just as well make it our adopted charity and be done with it?

          If it goes to a vote, they will probably get it in any case, because of the numbers here that head to the Pattaya area.

          I'm really relaxed about it, either way.

              This might be a little contentious but my gripe.

              In all probability the best known charity is the Thai Children's trust. They cover a wide range of children's charities and have a really good reputation doing what is needed and distributing cash. If you look at the balance sheets, you can see (albeit 2010) out of nearly £1.5m raised they spent nearly £.5m on admin costs. While I agree that this portion of income is spent on advertising and admin costs can you imagine what half a million quid could do. This is why I support the Camillian Center. All the money is used for the upkeep of the kids. It has nothing to do with Pattaya and in fact not even near Pattaya.

              Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

                Well, I did say Pattaya area - its not far, is it!

                I know its a worthy cause, but they will have admin costs as well, everyone does. I guess it depends on whats covered by 'admin'?
