Somewhat off my usual stomping ground of cooking and recipes. I stumbled across this when I was sorting out my Just Giving site for the Teenage Cancer Trust (shameless plug 🙂 http://www.justgiving.com/jackclark ) .
Just Giving have hit upon the rather marvellous idea of giving to a random charity by a lucky dip.
A direct quote from their page is:
There are over 8,000 charities that you can donate to directly using JustGiving. Sadly, some of them are feeling forgotten. Nine out of every ten donations we receive go to just 140 charities. It’s great news for them, but this Christmas, we’d like to make sure that everyone gets something.
You then click on a link, get a charity chosen for you and donate just a fiver. Lovely simple idea that will hopefully boost a few charities coffers who wouldn’t ordinarily get much.

A fantastic way to start of December.
