Silverback, so you dont agree with charities then!! what about help for heroes
The military personnel that get butchered and damaged at the behest of governments shouldn't have to rely on charitable donations for their welfare needs.
By rattling the tins you are absolving the criminally greedy governments of the need to look after them.
Charitable donations, amongst other things, are a stealth tax, enabling the treasury to not need to raise taxes to cover whatever.
