  1. Thank so much for this information .. will be putting on my blog for friends to help - Sangeeta

  2. Why can't people donate to private individuals who are doing good works We should be able to contribute in any way we wish to - and to the people we trust. If a few friends want to get together to raise some funds, why can't they? Is this 'rule' that no contributions may be made in cash to any individuals/organisations actually law? Or just a cruel way of cutting out genuine volunteers.
