    Obviously you're not in business... do you think people just wake up each day saying "I think I'll go knock randomly on doors today" or could it be that the charity has sent them out to fundraise for a reason. And who cares really how much is spent on admin/ fundraising... if a charity can't grow then how do you expect to solve big social problems or should they just keep costs down and get nowhere.

    I own a business and work for multiple businesses.

    I'm not really into seeing people profit from charity.

    It's better for the donation to go directly to the charity.

    I understand that you might not, but some people do care about this.

    I imagine the board members would also care to know what the figures are, particularly if they were doing a review of their methods of fundraising and the cost-effectiveness of each in comparison.

    These days many people become aware of fundraisers such as the Red Shield Appeal via email, mail, main****** media, social media etc and choose to donate directly.

    Even if a charity has sent door-knockers out to fundraise for a reason, surely someone who prefers to donate directly is still helping make a difference in 'this messed up world'?

    I'm not sure what was wrong with BlissedOut's comment?
