Microdonations – more than just pocket money? Howard Lake | 17 September 2010 | News Tagged with: Digital Individual giving microdonations “Microdonations? Is that what this is?” says Anthony Law, founder of Pennies From Heaven. “It’s definitely giving pennies not pounds, but pennies become pounds.”Pennies From Heaven is probably one of the longest standing methods of ‘microdonating’. It is a system whereby people choose to give pennies from their pay at the end of each month, so if, say, your salary comes to £999.50, you round it up to £1,000 and the extra 50p goes to charity.Since its inception in 1998, PFH has raised over £1.5m for over 140 charities and currently distributes around £30k a month before Gift Aid.The term ‘microdonation’ is a more recent addition to the fundraising lexicon. With the rapid development of new technology and social media, plus donors’ increasing familiarity with it, has come a number of ways of giving small amounts of money, although all seem to have come about through individual innovations rather than microdonating being seen as a method in itself.Probably the best – or the biggest – examples of microdonations in action are at eBay. Its ‘Give at Checkout’ scheme gives buyers the option to add a small charitable donation when making purchases. Since it was launched in November 2008, it has raised £2.54m for 533 charities, with 57 receiving over £10,000 each. Currently between £110k and £120 a month goes to charity with £130k to £140k being donated from eBay’s sellers, who can elect to give a percentage of their selling price to charity.Penny On, a scheme to give a penny on top of your shopping bill, has been successfully piloted in the north west. MD of Penny On Stephen Bailey says that during a three month pilot, between three and eight per cent of till transactions attracted the Penny On. Shoppers can choose to add as much as they want to their bills – a penny, rounding the bill up to the nearest pound, adding a couple of quid. Each penny has a bar code like any other item and is very simple for retailers to use. Penny On chooses the charities to benefit, but picks local and international organisations that support the .Marc Simpson, founder of ploink!, wanted to create a way of giving online that emulated putting coins in a collecting tin or in a piggy bank. “They are like micro-pledges,” he explains. “You put a penny into the virtual pig online. When it gets up to 99p you can either donate that 99p via your credit card, or you can wait until it gets up to the maximum of £10.” It’s early days for ploink! but it has already donated around £1,500 and has just under 600 people signed up with about 200 charities on the site.It hasn’t undertaken any advertising or marketing so far other than using Twitter and Facebook because Simpson wants to get the model absolutely right before he is inundated with donations.ploink! has its Gift Aid audit trail approved and Penny On is ‘having an ongoing dialogue’ with HMRC so that it will also be able to apply Gift Aid to donations. Pennies For Heaven collects Gift Aid on all its donations.Other initiatives such as Cofacio also donate money to charities. Cofacio works as a ‘help engine’ and works by members getting awarded ‘points’ every time they answer or ask a question of the community. Members themselves decide where to cash in their points, supporting one of the charities (there are currently four). Corporate partners provide the financial backing to convert points into money.This follows on from search engines such as Everyclick (which has so far donated almost £1.4m to charities), Clicknow and search2give that donate a set amount to charities every time someone uses them to search for something on the internet.There will be more in the pipeline. Giving has remained static for most of the last 10 years, and with the economic outlook still a bit rocky, perhaps ways of collecting small amounts of money that aren’t so noticeable on individual balance sheets, but add up to significant sums on organisation’s accounts, are worth looking at. 30 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Judy Chu (CA-27) and John Katko (NY-24) introduced the Helping Extract Animals from Red Tape (HEART) Act, which would expedite the rehabilitation process of abused animals that are seized under federal law by the government. The HEART Act would also place the burden of paying for the cost of caring for these animals to the person claiming an interest in the animal, rather than local animal shelters. Reps. Chu and Katko released the following statements:Animal cruelty is a heinous crime against defenseless creatures,” said Rep. Chu. “Our government is rightfully vigilant and active in shutting down crime rings, but when the animals are seized, the cost and care falls on local shelters. Given that court proceedings can take over a year, those shelters, taxpayers, and other nonprofit entities pay millions of dollars to care for these animals. The bipartisan bill that I introduce with Rep. Katko would rightfully place the burden of cost on the individuals who cause the actual harm. Most importantly, the bill would allow shelters to begin rehabilitation services before the court case concludes, which would reduce the time animals are held in shelters by more than half. I look forward to working with my colleagues to keep animals safe and place responsibility where it belongs.”“As a former federal prosecutor, I’ve long-recognized that our system unfairly places the cost of care for abused animals on the American taxpayer, local municipal shelters, and nonprofit organizations,” said Rep. Katko. “I am greatly appreciative for the many animal advocates, like the ASPCA, who are committed to ending animal fighting and providing quality care and shelter for abused animals. I’m proud to have worked in a bipartisan manner with Representative Chu to streamline the process so that our local shelters can more quickly provide rehabilitation services and find loving homes for victimized animals.”The HEART Act would accomplish the following:• Accelerate the disposition process by reducing the period the Government has to notify interested parties following the seizure of animals under the federal animal fighting or gambling statutes from 60 days to 30 days, thus prioritizing the animals’ care;• Provide judges the discretion to require a claimant to post a bond to cover the cost of care for animals seized under the federal animal fighting and gambling statute during the period of seizure;• Require the immediate forfeiture of the animals to the seizing agency if a court ordered bond is not posted; and• Require the full bond be returned to the claimant should they prevail in the forfeiture proceedings.The bill language can be found here.

ABC New(NEW YORK) — Dorian strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane Wednesday as it lashed the U.S. and British Virgin Islands with heavy rain and took aim at Puerto Rico.After the storm passes through Puerto Rico, it will move north, potentially becoming a major Category 3 hurricane when it reaches Florida over the holiday weekend.Dorian won’t make landfall in Puerto Rico but will pass to the east of the island Wednesday afternoon and evening, bringing up to 75 mph winds, 10 inches of rain and possibly flash flooding. The Puerto Rican government said it is fully prepared for the storm’s impact. Gov. Wanda Vazquez said Monday night that the government is 90% ready to deal with any possible damage Dorian might cause.Meanwhile, many in Puerto Rico are still reeling from the devastation of 2017’s Hurricane Maria, including tens of thousands of residents living under blue tarp roofs.More than 7,400 generators and three mega generators are already on the island, according to the governor, and at least 360 shelters will open, accommodating up to 48,500 people.President Donald Trump has approved an emergency declaration, which will provide federal assistance in Puerto Rico.“The communication with all [of the president’s] aides has been extraordinary,” Vazquez said Monday.A new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) representative is on the island assisting in response coordination.The response “will be on top of a complex recovery effort,” a FEMA spokesperson said. “Even a smaller and less severe storm could have significant impact.”Once Dorian passes through the Caribbean, it’s forecast to steer toward Florida over the Labor Day weekend.Dorian could make landfall on the East Coast of Florida on Monday morning as a major Category 3 hurricane with winds up to 115 mph. The Southeast coastline from Miami to Charleston could see impacts.Jacksonville, Florida, will activate its emergency operations center full-time as Dorian nears, Mayor Lenny Curry said at a news conference Wednesday.Curry said it’s too early to make any decisions about possible evacuations, but residents should make sure they know their evacuation zone.The storm is also impacting Labor Day travelers. Some airlines have issued travel waivers, and Royal Caribbean is closing its private island in the Bahamas for a week and altering some of its cruise ship itineraries to avoid Dorian.As the Atlantic hurricane season nears Sept. 10 — its peak — Dorian isn’t the only storm on the move. Newly-formed Tropical Storm Erin is expected to bring rough surf to the East Coast beaches from the Carolinas to New England this Labor Day weekend.Otherwise, it is not expected to directly impact the East Coast.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Comments are closed. A referendum resulted in 71 per cent of those taking part voting in favour of the partnership agreement. Thames Water has 5,200 employees.Personnel director Julia Cherrett said other initiatives due to be introduced as a result of the agreement include a review of terms and conditions and improved training.She said, “We and the trade unions see the agreement as the best way of enabling organisational change and ensuring that employees are properly involved and consulted about matters that affect them.”Discussions about the partnership with unions Unison, GMB, AEEU and TGWU began early in the year. The referendum, managed by the Electoral Reform Society, was then held between 17 July and 4 August. The partnership is due to be implemented over the next few weeks with the first initiatives expected by next April.www.thames-water.com Employees to have more say thanks to dealOn 22 Aug 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
Comments are closed. UK puts HR experience aheadOn 11 Sep 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Most personnel directors in the UK are in their positions because of theirHR experience. While experience is more important than length of service or wider businessskills in the UK, it is a very different picture in Europe. More than a thirdof senior HR specialists in Europe are appointed from outside the profession. On average, senior HR practitioners across Europe have almost 12 years’experience with their current organisation, ranging from eight years in the UKto 16 years in Bulgaria. The same people have an average of 14 years’experience as HR specialists. Again this is subject to significant variationsbetween countries – ranging from seven years in Denmark to 17 in Sweden and theUK. Regarding the recruitment practices of firms, on average two-thirds ofsenior HR managers are recruited from pools of HR specialists (either frominternal or external sources), though this figure is lower in Finland andAustria, for example, where only four in 10 are HR specialists. In the UK, almost three-quarters of HR directors are from a specialist HRbackground. This suggests that senior HR professionals in the UK expect tochange organisations in order to get promoted. Half of firm’s HR directors are recruited internally, whether they are HRspecialists or not, and half externally, on average – but, again, nationaldifferences are discernable. In the Czech Republic, Spain, Austria and Turkey,around two-thirds of organisations recruited their current HR directorinternally, while only four out of 10 companies do so in the UK.
The ScotiaSea and surrounding Scotia Arc have evolved over the past 40 Ma, by extension behind an east-migrating subduction zone, at the boundary between the South American (SAM) and Antarctic (ANT) plates. The considerable data set now available (regional geology and geophysics, earthquake seismology, satellite altimetry, global plate analyses) suggest why east-migrating subduction began, what has been the driving force that has sustained it, and what other processes have controlled the mode of back-arc extension in the ScotiaSea. A suite of six reconstructions has been developed, based on this data set. The reconstruction to 40 Ma creates a compact, cuspate continental connection between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula at the subducting Pacific margin, with fragments (now dispersed around the Scotia Arc) occupying positions within it compatible with their known geology. The driving force has been subduction of South American ocean floor, which began as a result of southward migration of the pole of South American–Antarctic plate rotation, and a key modulator of back-arc extension has been collision of ridge crest sections of the South American–Antarctic plate boundary with the east-advancing trench. Cenozoic regionaltectonicevolution has two other likely consequences which greatly increase its importance. Firstly, this region saw the tectonic disruption of the final barrier to complete circum-Antarctic deep water flow, that may have had a profound effect on palaeoclimate. Secondly, it is possible that the rapid roll-back of the hinge of subduction is related to shallow eastward flow in the sub-lithospheric mantle. Both of these consequences are explored. The reconstructions show that rapid roll-back of the subduction hinge (averaging 50 mm/a over the last 40 Ma with respect to the South American plate) has been a feature of all of ScotiaSeaevolution, and provide a history of motion of several oceanic microplates, most of which are now welded together within the ScotiaSea. This will guide the location of seismometers and/or dredge hauls to test the hypothesis of shallow mantleflow, and help interpret the results. The reconstructions also allow an assessment of the creation of deep-water pathways that would have permitted the development of the present-day Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). An early Miocene onset (within the period 22–17 Ma) seems likely for the ACC, depending on the structure and palaeo-elevation of Davis Bank and Aurora Bank, sections of the North Scotia Ridge. However, the study shows there was a delay (of one or more million years) between initial provision of a deep-water pathway and the major mid-Miocene change in global climate (involving the general level of Antarctic glaciation) that may have been related. If these changes were related, then the delay suggests that other factors, possibly rough elevated ocean floor but also non-tectonic factors (such as atmospheric CO2), were important in determining palaeoclimate.

Both are now to be Group National Operations Directors while their colleague Simon Arnes, who was the region’s divisional managing director, becomes the Connells Group’s Estate Agency Operations Director.Ian FryConnells is hoping the trio can replicate their winning formula across the whole company and grow the Group branch network and market share.“As well as recognising the talent within our company, these well-deserved promotions signal our commitment to strengthening the business and driving forward with further expansion,” says David Plumtree.All three of the promoted directors are long-standing Sequence employees. Ian joined the company in 1996 as a senior negotiator, Giles as a negotiator in 1999 and Simon as an office boy in 1972.It’s been a busy year for Connells Group. It has made 15 agency acquisitions so far taking in 57 branches as well as opening of 28 lettings offices.Connells now has 600 branches around the UK including recently-purchased West Midlands agent Paul Dubberley and Newcastle-based Rook Matthews Sayer. Connells seems keen to brush off any mention of digital expansion and says it wants to strengthen its high-street presence despite buying only-only agent Hatched in November last year, and is hiring aggressively too. The Connells website currently has nearly 250 vacancies across the advertised in a variety of roles and operational areas.connells David Plumtree November 23, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
