Re: Jake the Snake asking fans to donate for shoulder surgery
Just donated, and saw the grand total was over 15k. To the question of why people would donate, I think it's because it feels more personal, when you give charity to something where you don't know who that person is that is getting it or how it will be used it can be off putting. Using the examples of Africa. In Uk we have big charity events throughout the year to give to Africa, where hundreds of millions of pounds are donated. The thing is, most of the countries we are donating to are so corrupt that the people who need the treatment or money hardly see any of that. I've stopped donating for comic relief because nothing seems to change. Since 1988, 600 million has been raised, yet every year there seems to be no change.
