How charities could save

It is our duty to help charities to cut administration expenses to the bone. Any unnecessary expenditure has to be paid for by the poorest of the poor in the Third World. Happily we can fulfil this duty at no cost to ourselves by the simple expedient of writing on the envelopes the words: "No acknowledgement required." Perhaps the secretaries of some of our largest charities would give us a rough estimate of the saving in postage, stationery — and even, perhaps, making do with one or two fewer clerks' salaries.

"Caritas" Name and address supplied.
