The secret life


is motivated by


not charity


Fundraising is no different from sales, and

the financial rewards can be huge. No

wonder there’s a tacit acceptance of bad

practice if we sign up enough donors

I work for an organisation that specialises in

running door-to-door fundraising campaigns

on behalf of a number of major charities.

My job is to sign up members of the public

to a regular donation, less than the price

of a cup of coffee each week, that could go

towards finding a cure for cancer, stopping

child abuse, or providing clean water for

developing countries.

That’s right. I’m a “chugger”, and I’m

despicable. I’m the one who comes round

late at night and wakes up the baby. I leave

the gate open and let the dog out. I’m pushy,

deceitful and I won’t leave you alone.

I defended chuggers, until one turned up on

my doorstep
