      This is shocking! I donate to these each other year they do this but seeing this will make me think twice in the future!

      yeah, to donate anything these days is unsafe unless you do a lot of research on the organization.

      You don't expect this kind of thing from a top organisation though, it's disgraceful!

      they aren't the first and they won't be the last. It's always better to donate to smaller more community organizations.

      Shocking. I never did donate to Children in Need. I don't trust any charities unless they are local.

      I give to the food bank on occasion in my wee town but that's it.
