Make-a-Wish hopes to benefit from Irish government’s rounding up of small change

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 28 October 2015 | News Advertisement Make-a-Wish Ireland is trying to make the most from small coins as the Irish government today begins a ‘rounding initiative’ which aims to reduce the use of 1 cent and 2 cent coins.Consumers in the Republic of Ireland will begin receiving cash change rounded to the nearest 5 cents from today. The rounding will only apply to cash payments with the total amount of any bill being rounded up or down to the nearest 5 cent mark. This will be done on a voluntary basis and 1 cent and 2 cent coins will remain legal tender.The move is part of Ireland’s rounding initiative, which aims to reduce the use of 1 cent and 2 cent coins. Ireland is running short of one-cent coins and the cost of producing these small coins exceeds their face value – a 1 cent coin costs 1.65 cent to produce while a 2 cent coin costs 1.94 cent.Some 2.5 billion cent and 2 cent coins have been issued in Ireland since the introduction of the euro, with a total value of €37 million. When Ireland moved from its own currency, the punt, to the Euro in 1998 a fundraising campaign to collect spare punt change raised over €7 million.Central Bank of Ireland encourages people to make their coppers count (December 2014)Change for Charity and Make-A-Wish are using the rounding initiative to call on people to donate their hoarded 1 cent and 2 cent coins to charity. Susan O’Dwyer, Chief Executive of Make-A-Wish is asking people to take the opportunity for people to declutter and donate their small change which is gathering dust in jars and down the back of sofas.Donations of coins can be made to Make-A-Wish at any Maxol or Dealz store in Ireland.A successful trial conducted by the National Payments Plan in Wexford in 2013 showed 85% of consumers and 100% of retailers in Wexford welcomed the national rounding of cent coins in Ireland.In the run-up to Christmas last year, a spokesperson for the Central Bank said:“Lots of people keep copper coins in jars and piggy banks around the house. There is €35.3 million worth of 1c and 2c coins. This is better being spent or given to charity. We urge people to use this time of the year to de-clutter, by either giving these coins to charity or spending them. With Christmas approaching now might be a good time to use those stray coins by giving them to a charity of your choice.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Secretary Vilsack Talks Farm Bill

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Apr 17, 2012 Secretary Vilsack Talks Farm Bill Previous articleWorkshops Help Farmers Scout For, Diagnose Crop ProblemsNext articleTwenty Four Percent of Indiana Corn Planted Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Secretary Vilsack Talks Farm Bill Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack believes Congress can approve a new farm bill before the current law expires in September. He says, “It’s clear the Senate Ag Committee plans to begin to mark up its version of the legislation this month.” As such – he expects the full Senate will vote on the bill by early summer. A bill he believes will continue federal support for crop insurance and offer some type of safety net program to supplement crop insurance revenue.Vilsack would also like to see some of the energy programs that expire with the current law restored in the Senate bill. He hopes to see continued commitment to the Rural Energy for America Program – or REAP – which offers grants and loans to farmers for on-farm renewable energy generation and energy efficiency. The program has also been used to help pay for the installation of blender pumps. Vilsack believes the Biomass Crop Assistance Program will be structured differently.The Senate farm bill draft – according to Vilsack – will likely simplify conservation programs – giving USDA more flexibility to tailor programs to local needs. The Secretary actually likes that approach and would like to see it applied to the rest of the farm bill – giving USDA the capacity to be creative.Source: NAFB News Service SHARElast_img read more

Oxford graduate under scrutiny

first_imgBo Guagua, a student at Balliol between 2006 and 2010, has been under intense international media scrutiny since his mother, the wife of a Chinese Communist party chief, was named as “highly suspected” in an investigation into the murder of a British businessman.Bo Guagua, who is now studying at Harvard, is now reported to be seeking asylum in the USA, after he left his Boston home with a police escort where Chinese men were seen watching his flat.His father Bo Xilai has been removed from his prominent position as party chief of the Chongqing branch of the Communist Party, following allegations from the Chinese media that his wife was involved with the death of Neil Heywood.In an article on Monday the Press Association suggested that Heywood, who worked as a consultant in China, and was closely associated with Bo Xilai, died from cyanide poisoning. State media also reported that “Bogu Kailai, wife of Comrade Bo Xilai, and their son were in good terms with Heywood. However, they had conflict over economic interests which had been intensified.”An orderly at Bo’s home, Zhang Xiaojun, and his wife have apparently “been transferred to judicial authorities on suspected crime of intentional homicide”.Police chief Wang Lijun, who later turned whistleblower and fled to a US consulate seeking asylum, allegedly told his officers to record Mr Heywood’s death as a heart attacked under Mr Bo’s orders.During Bo Guagua’s time in Oxford, he was rusticated, and moved into the Randolph Hotel. Despite his depiction by British and Chinese national media as a playboy and socialite, he eventually graduated with a 2:1 in PPE.However, Balliol refused to give a reference to Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where Bo Gua gua is now studying for a masters in public policy.One student told Cherwell that while Bo Guagua was “not especially under-prepared” academically, he “spent more time on out of college stuff, like the Union and the PPE Society” than his degree.One anonymous student told the Telegraph, “He never held back on spending. He was always buying people drinks”. Another recalled his failed attempt to rise to prominence in the Union: “A whole bunch of Chinese students came to vote for Guagua. They couldn’t as they had only joined the day before. Guagua tried to argue about it but there was nothing he could do.”In 2007, three Chinese diplomats visited Balliol to request the university were more lenient on Bo Xilai’s son, as they claimed his rustication would reflect badly on the politician in a country where education is so highly valued. One source commented, “His tutors replied if that was the case they should get him to work harder.”A University spokesperson said, “All Oxford students are treated the same. Admission is based solely on academic merit, and there are absolutely no exceptions to that policy.”Bo Xilai, who was a popular contender for party leadership, is currently under investigation by central party officials for “serious disciplinary violations”.Bo Guagua, who is now studying at Harvard, is now reported to be seeking asylum in the USA, after he left his Boston home with a police escort where Chinese men were seen watching his flat.His father Bo Xilai has been removed from his prominent position as party chief of the Chongqing branch of the Communist Party, following allegations from the Chinese media that his wife was involved with the death of Neil Heywood.In an article on Monday the Press Association suggested that Heywood, who worked as a consultant in China, and was closely associated with Bo Xilai, died from cyanide poisoning.
