I have been remiss in not keeping up-to-date in running the PoC charitable donations scheme. The reason is that it is a form of “admin” for me and I prefer to do things other than “admin” 😉 It is as simple as that.
I think there are three months worth of comments to add together to work out a donation amount. I have decided to take a broad brush approach (note the pun) and say that the giveaway for the three months is £200, which is inline more or less with previous sums.
Ahsan ul Haq
Using Western Union (which I now understand and trust after a trial run), I have sent £110 to Ahsan in Islamabad, Pakistan to help in his fantastic work caring for feral cats and in his desire to build an enclosure to keep his cats safe.
Note: Ahsan did not request the money. In fact he refused it. I insisted he had it 🙂
The other £100 can be donated this month sometime. I have in mind Walsall Borough Cats Protection. If someone has any other ideas please tell me.
Thanks for your patience. I know a lot people wanted PoC to help Ahsan – me too. The major hurdle was working out the method to get the money safely to Ahsan. The usual methods such as PayPal are unavailable.
