Should charities be doing more to talk about the worth of their CEO rather than trying not to talk about pay levels?

I have a tough time as a collector during Christian Aid week convincing people that a good proportion of the collection goes to help improve conditions in places like Africa and not  into CEOs pockets. So yes, the CEO and admin. staff need to talk more about what they do and the value of their work.

It's this kind of humour that most charity marketing is sadly lacking today. Maybe not literally this but a bit of laughter can get people on your side.
 
Here’s a 1960-70s RNIB collection box found in our archive. The illustration on the box is based on the saucy postcard genre of comedy, famous for its bawdy humour. An amusing item from times past ... very different from the collection boxes used these days!

Our first safari experience could not have been better. Amazing setting, lovely people, delicious food, and we saw the Big Five on our first day thanks to our ranger Henry and spotter Amos. Highly reccomended (but this is a luxury option so be prepared to spend upfront).
