"Mustard Seed Charity - Another Crock of Jersey Shit"
Jersey based charity Mustard Seed are appealing for donations for their Christmas 'shoe box' campaign.
The idea is to have the boxes packed and wrapped by early November.
They will then be loaded on to a lorry and driven to Romania where they will be handed out.
Last year, 2,850 shoeboxes went to Romania.
The charity has a list of recommended items to go into the boxes.
Fun items: Car, teddy, toy animals, musical instrument, mask, soft ball, etc
Educational items: Items to write with: pencils, pens, crayons, felt pens depending on age group, Paper to write on, notebook, etc.
Toiletries: toothbrush, tooth paste, soap
Clothing: new hat, gloves, socks, scarf – size appropriate to age-group.
In children’s boxes please include one or two items of both clothing and toiletries but please do NOT include sweets, liquids or anything breakable.
For pensioners boxes and victims of people trafficking:- Toiletries 4 + bars soap, shampoo/body wash, [liquids in sturdy bottles and double sealed please], toothbrush & paste, face flannel, washing powder (if space), hand cream, razors for men, makeup for young women, etc
At least one item warm clothes (preferably more) socks, gloves, hat, scarf, etc.
The style and colour of items of clothing should reflect whether for a trafficked victim average age 18-30 or a pensioner. Elderly pensioners usually wear dark colours in Romania.
Yeah, yeah, we help the world, blah blah blah....
Fucking Mustard Seed?
Do you know what I learned about mustard seeds when I was very young?
"The teacher is only as rain to the soil, he cannot grow pomegranates from mustard seeds"
How much does it cost to send a fully equipped and manned lorry, or however many lorries, to Romania?
How much to buy the same commodities in Romania? Then simply distribute them to the people via a trusted and credible organisation in that country?
"FUCK MUSTARD SEED"
Some filthy greedy stinking Jersey bastard somewhere will be creaming something out of this piss pathetic organisation somewhere along the line :(
