Question 1: Will you give me some money for these people who were injured racing in theTT?
Question 2: Will you give me some money for these people who were injured if I push a sidecar round the TT course?
I assume they asked the first question before they asked the second? Personally, speaking I wouldn't give to either but I would be considerably less irritated if someone just asked me quesiotn 1, tbh. Just - why?
Why? Read the link.
1 It was sponsored, so yes.
2 I think the answer to question 1 answers question 2.
You've said you wouldn't give to either, so why are you irritated? and why would someone have to exclusively answer question 1 for you, when the answer is in the link provided?
To be quite honest, I for one don't care what you think, or that you're irritated by these fundraising events and I know that everyone who is supporting these fundraising events doesn't care that it irritates you either.
If people want to give to any fundraiser, no matter what the cause, that's up them, nobody twists their arm and nobody forces them to do it, obviously though, people feel strongly enough about these fundraising events to support them.
