Apparently this year’s Salvation Army Red Shield appeal fell short by around $2 million, with apartment block security doors and an increasingly cashless society cited as two major reasons. I think most would agree the Salvos do a good job, so if you had planned to give but couldn’t, now might be a good time to do the cashless thing and click through to their web site to donate online. Let’s show them that the wired age and the cashless society can still have a social conscience! (Ron and Jeff wouldn’t, of course.)
Did I mention I got 6 out of 8 in the footy tipping? Would have been 7 if I’d had enough faith to tip my own team.
