It is the time to write about a charity donation funded by the PoC Comment Charity Scheme. Before I address that subject, I’d like to mention the £100 donation made by Marc Poberejsky, a regular and well-regarded contributor to PoC.
Not long ago, Marc made an extremely generous donation of $1000 in memory of his cat Red and this is another donation, this time to the Wear Valley and Darlington Cats Protection branch, which boosts Ruth and Barbara’s donation of £92.11 that was raised through their fundraiser. That makes a highly respectable £192.11 for cat welfare. Wonderful.
I can confirm the donation has been made via PoC for ease of management as Marc lives in Switzerland. Marc donated £100 to my PayPal account and I made the donation via the Cats Protection website using my debit card.
The reason why I am spelling it out is because it is important that everything concerning money is done with a high level of transparency for the sake of engendering trust. Trust through honesty is a feature of PoC and the family of cat caretakers that it has become.
PoC Comment Charity Scheme – August Donation
The total number of comments at this time (11:44 am) on the last day of August is 2351 [17560 (present) less15209 (beginning of month)].
At 5 cents per comment that makes a very healthy $117. Converting to pounds we have £75.50. The final figure will be a fraction higher when I count comments later today.
I hope people are pleased. I want to most sincerely thank everyone who has commented and contributed. It is important as it keeps PoC alive and motivates me. PoC is unique in giving the sums of money that it does to cat charities. We should be proud of that. PoC has been giving to charity since 2008.
Choose a Charity
I would like some suggestions as to which cat charity should receive the £75.50 for August’s donation. There is no need to rush but ideas would be useful to me as it broadens the scope of what can be done with the money.
Update — Made a donation of £76 to Ark on the Edge:
