We were very pleased to hear that some people love coming across face to face fundraisers in Auckland, one man recently signed up to donate a regular gift to one charity and then later that day signed up for a second charity. Talking to him, he was very excited to be a supporter and convinced it was the right thing to do. He was very passionate about the work the charities are doing, and he signed up with two charities whose causes are close to his heart, because he wanted to help. We love to hear this type of feedback.
Some great feedback on the Eastbourne Community Noticeboard about PFRA member 'Make-A-Wish's' door to door fundraiser - "..extremely polite and friendly young guy, had all the ID visible.."
"Just had a collector from WWF called Jordan drop by to ask for donations, and I must say it was the best experience I've had with a door knocker. We had a lovely conversation about the Maui dolphin and kiwis, and what impact we as a species has made on them. One of the most down to earth people I've every talked to on my doorstep."
