British Red Cross raises more online than offline for tsunami appeal

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 7 January 2005 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Digital Research / statistics The British Red Cross’ emergency tsunami appeal was launched at midday on 26 December, the day of the disaster, and has raised over £3.3 million online.Much of the total donated was raised during the first five days of the appeal during the holiday period, showing how important it was to have the website available throughout this period.This is the first time that a British Red Cross appeal has raised more money online than offline. This is even more significant because of the scale of the giving: the response was more than 10 times higher than that to the Bam earthquake a year previously.Charity website specialists Baigent, who manage the website for the British Red Cross, called in staff from their holidays to provide additional capacity for the site and donation facilities. The site, unlike those of some other charities, was able to cope with the sudden and massive demand.According to figures compiled by independent website traffic analysts Hitwise, the British Red Cross website together with the Blue Peter Welcome Home Appeal site received 13.4% of all charity website visits during the week after Boxing Day.Mark Astarita, Director of Fundraising for the British Red Cross said: “Traffic to the site increased dramatically overnight when we became the number one listing on Google, with news sites (BBC, Yahoo, Sky) and major internet properties such as Amazon and Apple linking to us.“The British Red Cross is at the forefront of emergency response to international disasters, and with Baigent’s support we had the systems in place to raise £3 million in under one week.”The website is set to become an even greater part of the British Red Cross’ communications and fundraising strategy in the coming year with a major redesign by Baigent, due to be launched this month.

Korea: The facts, please

first_imgDeputy Foreign Minister Sin Hong Chol on Al Jazeera.Here are the facts that the U.S. media ignore about Korea:There are no foreign troops in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea — north Korea. The last Soviet soldiers, who aided Kim Il Sung’s guerrilla army in defeating Japanese colonial rule, left in 1948. Chinese troops, who supported the DPRK after the U.S. invaded north Korea in 1950, left in 1953 after the armistice.But U.S. troops have occupied south Korea since 1945; 28,500 are still there. There are 38 U.S. military installations in south Korea, plus one militarized golf course. (lifeinkorea.com) The golf course is the station for the first Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery in south Korea, a U.S. radar system opposed by the Korean people, in the north and south, as well as China.Every year, the U.S. carries out massive war exercises in and around the Korean peninsula. This year’s Operation Key Resolve/Foal Eagle, which began in March and continued until April 24, has involved hundreds of thousands of troops from the U.S. and south Korea.The south Korean news agency Yonhap reported on March 13: “The U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six will join the annual Foal Eagle and Key Resolve exercises between the two allies for the first time, along with the Army’s Rangers, Delta Force and Green Berets.” Yonhap quoted an unnamed military official as saying, “A bigger number of and more diverse U.S. special operation forces will take part in this year’s Foal Eagle and Key Resolve exercises to practice missions to infiltrate into the North, remove the North’s war command and demolition of its key military facilities.”In truth, it is the imperialist U.S. that is the “foreign power” in Korea and has created an explosive situation for the whole region in its attempts to destroy the DPRK. Five million people died in the Korean War. Continued occupation and threats from the U.S. have forced the north Koreans to arm themselves, including with nuclear weapons, in order to survive.But threats won’t work against the Koreans. As Sin Hong Chol, the DPRK’s deputy foreign minister, told Al-Jazeera, the U.S. administration should “look at the world with open eyes.”“The time of dictating orders by brandishing U.S. military might has gone,” he said. “If those businessmen in power in the U.S. thought of intimidating us by any military or sanction threats — as the Obama administration used to do and failed — they will soon find out such threats are useless.” (April 23)There’s only one way to defuse the tensions on the Korean peninsula. The U.S. must sign a peace treaty ending the 1950-53 war (it never has) and get its troops out so the Korean people can at last determine their own destiny.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Media targeted in political violence and tension following disputed election results

first_img The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa GabonAfrica News News September 3, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Media targeted in political violence and tension following disputed election results Follow the news on Gabon November 27, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is extremely worried about the impact on the media of a wave of violence and unrest in Gabon that began when the authorities announced earlier today that Ali Bongo, the late president’s son, was the winner of last Sunday’s presidential election. Journalists have been threatened or beaten and the signals of some TV stations have been cut.“Journalists seemed to be able to work fairly freely on voting day but that changed between the vote count and the announcement of the results,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The media are there to cover the election and its outcome, not to be hostages of the rivalry between the various candidates. As soon as the media are prevented from working properly, there ceases to be any guarantee that the election has been free or fair.”A Radio-Télévision Nazareth crew was physically attacked outside the entrance to the national electoral commission in Libreville today by opposition supporters reacting to the announcement of Ali Bongo’s victory. Accusing the RTN journalists of being “pro-Ali,” the opposition supporters roughed them up and broke their camera. An Agence France-Presse crew meanwhile narrowly escaped being attacked in the Libreville district of Plein Ciel and a France 3 crew was stoned.Reporter Patrick Bibang of Radio Africa No.1 was roughed at around 11 p.m. last night by participants of a large opposition demonstration as he was trying to make his way through the crowd in order to talk Mba Obame, Pierre Mamboundou and other opposition leaders who were there.Five masked gunmen sprayed the transmitter of satellite TV station Go Africa with automatic gunfire on the night of 1 September as it was trying to fill the gap left when the signal of TV+, a station owned by opposition candidate André Mba Obame, was cut by the authorities on election day on the grounds that it “misused archive images” in a programme about the late President Omar Bongo Ondimba.Telephone texting was suspended yesterday by the Telecommunications Regulation Agency (ARTEL) after well-known figures (and journalists) reported receiving SMS messages containing death threats. An AFP journalist told Reporters Without Borders he had received dozens of death threats by telephone. SMS messages can also be used to send election results and calls for protests.The Paris-based Africa 24 TV station broadcast a report on 1 September that its crew had been forced to leave the country by the Gabonese authorities. The authorities have denied this.Reporters Without Borders issued a press release two days before the election voicing concern that the authorities would use “all available means to keep news and information under tight control.” Read the release According to the results released today by the interior ministry, Ali Bongo was elected president with 141,952 votes (41.7 per cent). The runners-up were André Mba Obame with 88,028 votes (25.9 per cent) and Pierre Mamboundou with 85,797 votes (25.2 per cent).
