You know, here in the UK - there are several charities similar to one called 'Help for heroes' that do huge and I mean HUGE amounts of fundraising
campaigns throughout the year, including events such as marathons, North Pole and Everest expeditions, massive prime-time TV campaigns, huge social
networking activity and signing donors up on the high streets.
They sell merchandise, everywhere, such as wrist bands, shirts, hats, coats, posters, stickers, toys, lot's and lot's of stuff... It's a GIANT
organisation...and I admire their efforts and have supported them the best I can.
However, every time I give, I can't help wondering if this group is backed by our shady bunch of shills in Government, who instead of admitting to
cuts in pensions, forces health care, living and support - would find it more cost effective to back PR, promote, market and advertise such charities
and allow the generosity of/enforce the sympathising UK people to pay for These things instead?...
Proves to me that THE people care more about our forces personnel than our self serving chancer's and capitalist fat cats, ever will.
Perhaps the US political and security/ forces elite have witnessed this UK model working and have decided to adopt it?
Bloody obvious to me.
