first_img Howard Lake | 11 June 2014 | News Global fundraising platform Xperedon has expanded its online fundraising services to enable charities to build and run online shops. Charities can generate income from their own products, but they can also generate income by recruiting corporate supporters to the site to sell their products and services in support of a charity.David Hallett, CEO of the Anglo-Swiss enterprise, said that the shops can be “up and running in minutes”. He added:“The platform provides a distinctive approach for suppliers, where products are showcased in the general search, alongside others, but each also have their own online shop complete with blogging, media, and social tools.”Charities and corporate supporters can embed their shop or any element of their shop into their own websites and Facebook pages, ensuring as wide an audience as possible can find them.By aggregating multiple charities’ and companies’ online shops, Xperedon says that it is offering charities several ways in which its products can be found:[list type=”check”]individual charity shop, showing only products from one charity.general Search, showing all products from all charities and suppliers.Really Big Shop, showing all products from all shops in the database.[/list]FeesXperedon does not charge charities either a registration fee or monthly charges to establish and run a charity shop. Instead, it charges a commission on sales generated via the platform.It charges charities and non-profits a commission of 12.5% on the sale price of items sold via the platform. Commercial businesses pay 15% and £19/month. Card processing fees are passed on at cost.Where a supplier is recruited by a charity, Xperedon pays 2.5% of the sale price to the charity on all sales.

first_imgIn what many are calling a resurgent movement of student protest, many thousands of youth and their supporters surged through the streets of London on Nov. 4 to protest the British government’s treatment of young people and the working class of Britain.Although billed as a march for “free education,” the organizers of the protest, the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, accused the government of “waging a war on the young and the working classes across society.” Hannah Sketchley, speaking for the group, condemned, “The destruction of the youth housing benefit, the [National Health Service], social housing and working tax credits, and the spreading of anti-migrant narratives and the Prevent ‘Counter-Terrorism’ Agenda, with its wide-reaching surveillance especially on Muslim students.” (huffingtonpost.co.uk, Nov. 4)Student march, Nov. 4.There were reports of scattered police violence along the march route. The police used such deliberate tactics as “kettling” — blocking students’ progress through the streets by corralling them and refusing to let them move in any direction. When the students protested, the police clubbed them, arresting 12.The march was heavily violence-baited by much of the British mainstream media before it even started. The London police took the unusual step of tweeting the route of march and warning people to stay away in order to avoid “danger.”The Conservative government and their supporters were especially hostile toward the march because it had received significant political support from the newly elected leader of the opposition Labor Party, Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn, who is considered much more to the left than previous Labor Party leaders, not only openly endorsed the march, but sent his shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, to speak to the students.McDonnell, a longtime supporter of student demands, electrified the crowd with a rousing speech: “Education is a gift from one generation to another, not a commodity to be bought and sold. … This government is betraying you and future generations and I’m here in solidarity for education. … Let me say this: your voice needs to be heard.” (dailymail.co.uk, Nov. 4)During his campaign for leader of the Labor Party, Corbyn enraged his opponents by saying he wanted to “apologise on behalf of the Labor Party to the last generation of students for the imposition of fees and the replacement of grants with loans by previous Labor governments.” (theguardian.com, Oct. 2)A struggle against austerityUntil 1998, there were no tuition charges for college students in Britain. The entire cost of higher education was borne by the British government in the form of subsidies to colleges and universities.In 1998, a Labor government adopted a previous Conservative government’s recommendation to allow universities to charge up to 1,000 pounds in tuition. Almost all immediately did so.In 2004, following the collapse of the worldwide dot.com bubble and the subsequent slashing of government support for education, the fees were raised to 3,000 pounds.In 2010, following the great recession, the British government tripled the cap on tuition to 9,000 pounds (about $13,000) and made the terms for student loans — in reality a post-graduation tax — much more onerous. A discriminatory provision against foreign students, unless they come from the European Union, requires them to pay whatever the university wants to charge, without the opportunity to obtain a student loan.Last July, the Conservative government decided to convert living expense grants for poorer students into loans.The British youths’ fight against austerity is part of a worldwide movement. It deserves the support of progressives everywhere.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The three journalists – editor Ibrahim Al-Maamari, deputy editor Youssef Al-Haj and local news editor Zaher Al-Abri – appeared in court on Monday 15 August on charges including undermining the prestige of the state, disturbing public order, and violating a ban on publishing on the case. During the second session of the trial on August 22, Zaher Al-Abri, was released on bail and the trial was postponed to August 29. Surprisingly, the Omani court also ordered that journalists and civil society representatives refrain from publishing details of the hearings.This high-profile trial has garnered international attention and wide support on social media from people who appreciate the newspaper’s coverage or show solidarity with its journalists. Detaining and prosecuting journalists because of their investigative coverage of a judicial case amounts to criminalizing the very essence of journalism, which is to provide the public with information. The Sultanate of Oman has a much deserved reputation at the international level today in mediating crises in the international arena, and it has potential to rise as a more tolerant and stable actor in the region.We therefore ask you to intercede to obtain the unconditional release of these journalists. We recognize the government’s right to deny the accuracy of Azamn’s reporting. But no journalist should be jailed for their reporting, regardless of the government’s contentions concerning the veracity of their work. We also urge the lifting of the newspaper suspension ordered by the Ministry of Information on August 9.We are extremely disturbed by the latest restrictive measures adopted with regard to the newspaper and its members, and we hope that, as result of your intervention, independent media voices will no longer be silenced.We thank you in advance for the attention you give to our requests.Sincerely,Robert Mahoney, Committee to Protect Journalists Deputy Executive Director Christophe Deloire, Reporters Without Borders Secretary General The Sultanate of Oman is ranked 125th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

They didn’t even have the courtesy to respond to our request. They just sat there without saying a word. Is that what we pay them to do?”Ross said she would be willing to make a donation to the park effort and to help with the landscaping. She believes other members of the community would gladly do also.“We love Brundidge and we want it to be a town that we can be proud of,” she said. “A downtown park would be a good starting place for the community to get involved.” Skip Some residents say the city council’s decision to disregard a request to reconsider paving additional parking spaces at Brundidge Station is “disappointing and disheartening.”Dixie Shehane, president of the Brundidge Business Association, expressed disappointment that the vision for a park that has been discussed for more than 10 years is now disappearing.“I’m disappointed that the city didn’t grant our request,” she said. “Our vision was for a park with trees, benches, swings and a fountain and maybe even a gazebo. Several people had mentioned the park as a place to have outdoor concerts.” Delatha Mobley said that she, too, is extremely disappointed with the city council’s decision to ahead with the paving project.“A group of us attended a public hearing at the city council meeting on July 19, concerning the remediation of an outdoor recreation park on the south end of town,” Mobley said.“I specifically asked if that (recreation) park would have any effect on the park at Brundidge Station. My question was, ‘Will we still have our park at Brundidge Station?’ and his reply was that it would have no effect, that we would still have our park at Brundidge Station.’ I believed him when he said that.”Mobley said she checked the minutes of the July 19 meeting and her comments were not included.“In talking with a couple of council members about the park at Brundidge Station, they said that they have been discussing the paving for a while,” she said. “I have not been able to find a mention of it in the city council’s minutes until it was approved on Sept. 20.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Latest Stories Sponsored Content Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
