It takes £1,000 to register a charity. The advantage is for donors to be able to deduct their donations from their tax bill.
We’ve been operating withoug funds ever since we started in 1998, everybody contributing time and efforts for free, with occasionally some money for printing a programme or paying a phone or internet bill.
As soon as I have that charity registration number, I want to place big DONATE buttons on my various websites, hoping that people will respond to
- heart werenching cases such as Vicky Haigh and Miss A
- victims turned starfighters such a Maurike J Kirk BVSc, Gedal Ebert and Paulette Cooper
- the cries of the many victims ‘out there’ who desperately need legal help and personal support, as expressed in our online petitions and their remarkable comments.
Meanwhile I want the name to be Victims Anonymous and have formulated the following objectives:
- To aid victims of white collar crimes, such as financial exploitation, legal oppression and emotional cruelty
- To provide emotional, legal and financial support through face-to-face meetings
- To build mutual support networks by making best use of social media.
- Police accused of silence on crime (victims-unite.net)
- Wasting police time is a punishable offence. But “The police hunt is on for Vicky Haigh, though she is not a ‘missing person’” (victims-unite.net)
- Dear worthwhile cause and/or charity (lostinaseaofblogs.wordpress.com)
