    Oh, I'm sorry You may be able to get a refund on what you donated. I read that IC had received a lot of calls from people wanting their money back.

    I hope you haven't been burnt too much and feel about to give to charity in the future

    I didn't donate (I donate to my chosen charity monthly) - but I did share the video, but - after sharing the link I looked deeper into it, finding link upon link of stories from people who have been involved in various ways. - and then felt a bit ick.
    me too... I got momentarily swept up.. but didn't donate and feel kind of stupid now.

    I don't think anyone should feel silly about being caught up in it. It really was a very clever slick marketing campaign designed to be emotive and to get people caught up in it.

    Let's not get away from that fact IC is a legitimate charity not a scam so there is no need to feel silly or get caught up in another kind of media hype. Whether you agree with their methods and the way they conduct their charity is something else entirely and you should decide that for yourself.
