A dear friend of mine irregularly sends me snaps of the charity token bins at his local Waitrose supermarket in Suffolk. After discovering a similar arrangement at The Good Guys we did a brief desktop analysis.
The major findings were that:
— Tuggeranong likes Jamie Oliver better than Suffolk;
— The English support historic and romantic things – bell ringers and wild ponies;
— the people of Tuggeranong REALLY like a helicopter.
However, the Good Guys did announce in February that their Good Guys Local Giving Program had donated more than $5 million to over 150 local community organisations around Australia, supporting essential programs, services and projects at a grassroots level.
That is sort of nice.
