In January this year, the oil giant BP Amoco set up such a scheme.“Charities on the Intranet” gives charities the chance to promote projects directly to BP Amoco employees via the company’s Intranet. BP Amoco will match the funds generated by any employee donating via this system. The scheme is initially available only in London, but will be extended nationwide later this year. Only religious organisations and political parties will be excluded. Advertisement Howard wrote in his ground-breaking book: “Existing corporate supporters who have Intranets are therefore worth approaching, and asking whether they will allow a fundraising appeal area on their Intranet, or perhaps a weekly or monthly appeal on the message of the day that users see every timethey start up their computers. Employers could then add their matched giving support to such donations, keeping all the activity private and internal.”Order Direct Connection’s guide to Fundraising on the Internet AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  17 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 11 February 1999 | News Three years ahead About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

However, many UK based charities will also be keeping one eye on the outcome of the election.The opportunities for fundraising in the US are now huge: around £120 billion is donated to charity every year, compared to only £9.5 billion in the UK. However, for many small and medium UK based charities accessing this potentially enormous income stream is both legally complicated and expensive.CAFAmerica, a registered US non-profit which is part of the Charities Aid Foundation international network, provides a solution in the ‘Friends of’ Charity Fund. This eliminates the expense, time and trouble in setting up a separate US charity. The ‘Friends of’ Charity Fund is only a fifth the cost of setting up a standalone US charitable entity.Over 900 UK charities have been helped by CAFAmerica, and the ‘Friends of’ Charity Fund raised over $7m for UK charities in the last financial year. Susan Saxon-Harold, CEO of CAFAmerica said, “The ‘Friends of’ Charity Fund is a simple, cost-effective flexible solution to attract gifts from US donors. The fund is an ideal solution for UK charities wishing to start a state-side marketing and promotion drive.“A charity can use their fund in a variety of ways such as launching a fundraising appeal, conducting a membership drive, or raising money from an event like a silent auction or dinner.”– ends –Contact: James KetchellE: [email protected]: 0207 832 3014.Notes to editors:The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) is a charity set up to help other charities by working with donors, companies and charities to encourage and facilitate a culture of giving. They do this by offering products and services that make giving easier, tax efficient and help charities to make the most of donations through their banking and fundraising support services.Founded in 1992, CAFAmerica is a US 501(c)(3) public charity. CAFAmerica is part of the CAF International Network, which spans five continents and manages more than $4 billion in charitable funds.Charities interested in growing their US fundraising can visit http://www.cafamerica.org for more information.

  • CattleFax Market Watcher Sees Herd Expansion in Future

    first_img CattleFax Market Watcher Sees Herd Expansion in Future Home Indiana Agriculture News CattleFax Market Watcher Sees Herd Expansion in Future By Gary Truitt – Nov 6, 2012 Facebook Twitter SHARE CattleFax’s Randy Blach believes beef herd expansion is on its way – but maybe not until a year or two from now. Blach says the herd is still getting smaller and cattle market watchers think it will continue to shrink a little more on into 2014 and 2015 – but by January 2015 – he believes the herd will stabilize and grow – as long as it rains. Blach says fed slaughter is down 950-thousand head for the year and heifer slaughter is down over half of that. Normally – he says heifer slaughter would count for 36 to 37-percent of the United States’ total slaughter. That means producers are trying to hold females together – according to Blach – who says beef cow slaughter is down nearly 500-thousand head.He predicted prices to be a record high this year – and he says it’s going to be a tough situation for the next 12 to 18-months as the situation of declining numbers to pick and choose from continues. Weights are going to be up 17 to 18-pounds – according to Blach – and the bottom line is that four animals today produce as much beef as five did 20-years ago. He says cattlemen have a phenomenal story to tell – with what they’ve been able to do with productivity increases, better nutrition, learning to feed cattle and animal husbandry among other things. Blach says these productivity increases are going to be important in feeding the growing world population.center_img Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleCompany Idles State’s Oldest Ethanol PlantNext articleAfter the Election, Now What?

Ashhabi was taken to the Sanaa central prison the following day. The editor of the newspaper, Ahmed al-Maghlas, was given a three-year suspended prison sentence. The sentence was handed down on the same day a verdict was delivered against journalist Anissah Othman. Ashhabi says that he has apologised on several occasions in the course of the legal proceedings, to his interrogators then to the judges at the press and publications court. Ashhabi has become the ninth journalist and netizen to be imprisoned in Yemen. February 26, 2021 Find out more Journalist Moaz Ashhabi was sentenced on 16 January to one year in prison by a court in Sanaa dealing with press matters which also banned him from working as journalist for one year for “falsification of the Koran”. YemenMiddle East – North Africa to go further Follow the news on Yemen Fixer for foreign reporters held in Aden for past five months Help by sharing this information “This sentence is extremely harsh and even more so since the journalist apologised both during the investigation and in front of the judges”, Reporters Without Borders said. “Ashhabi was tried by a special court and immediately imprisoned without right of appeal. This sentence is yet another violation of press freedom in Yemen where the authorities are handing down sentences to journalists with abandon”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. The article that earned Ashhabi his jail sentence was headlined, “They corrected the Koran” and was published in issue no 503 of the weekly al-Thaqafa (published by the al-Jumhurriya, the Republic, Foundation), referring to a debate on chanting of the Koran that is causing an uproar in Yemen’s religious circles. Three members of parliament, Mohammed Nasser al-Hazimi, Aref al-Sabri and Mohammed al-Sadeq, reacted to the column with an article in the next issue of al-Thaqafa and later made a complaint against the journalist for “falsification of the Koran”.
