    Some do some don't , all gratefully received and very welcome. Give to charity? Most are scams. Help for heros maybe. Want to earn a good living? Start a charity, anyone can, You just have to register it.
    Pay yourself £50 grand a year or more. The heads of some charities earn much more, and all you have to pass on is 5% by law. Out in the street with collecting cans every week, its all perfectly legal once you have registered. Never have to work again

    I've only had a £1 tip so far .

    Chucked it into the kids money box , but I'm a strong believer that charity starts at home .
    If I could afford to give money to charity then maybe I would but I cant so I don't simple really .

    I wouldn't give anything to charity, it will never see the person/s in need, I'd rather go into McDs and buy a homeless person a big mac meal or something..

    Like how much are them companies paying for tv adverts? Sponsor a child for £2.. Your £2 can give them fresh water, a boil of rice.. Or maybe sponsor a dog, dolphin, snow leopard... Wtf!!


    But as for tips.. Of course I expect a tip, I do a great service, reliable and put up with them all year in all weathers.. I deserve a tip lol..

    No not mexican. But got links with a charity there I see every year whilst on holiday. .im only talking 50 pound
    A year but its better than nothing..I got no kids what with charity starts at home..I guess it will all change when I have some.
