Howard Lake | 27 April 2011 | News It is time to cut the clutter on fundraising appeals, argues marketing and advertising consultant Andrew Papworth in his latest monthly newsletter. “Off-the–page fundraising is fast becoming a junk yard of logos, codes, reference numbers and other clutter”, he writes in the May issue of ‘Harvest’ newsletter, published next week.The newsletter highlights the problem facing art directors of the ever-growing number of graphics and textual information made necessary by statutory and voluntary regulatory bodies and the increasing demands of hi-tech communications.Logos and graphics you are likely to see on fundraising appeals include the Fundraising Standards Board tickbox, the Gift Aid logo, the Direct Debit logo, the Direct Marketing Association logo, and perhaps even a QR code.“It’s hard to know what can be done to cut down the clutter,” said Papworth “because of the demands of modern payment methods and the need to allay donors’ concerns about bad practice; but graphic designers could certainly help if they designed their logos to take up as little space as possible whilst achieving their objectives.”The newsletter also features praise for a Water Aid advert that makes a virtue of text giving, a good idea from the Labour Party for personalising mailshots, suggestions for using QR codes more imaginatively, and analysis of two adverts featuring trees that “fail to make their points”.Andrew Papworth has been a freelance marketing and advertising consultant for many years. He used to run the Charity Monitor on behalf of the RNLI and syndicated its findings to several other major charities. His Harvest newsletter features issues relating to advertising, marketing and communications as they affect charities. It is available free on request either as a hard copy by mail or as a pdf.www.andrewpapworth.co.uk Tagged with: Advertising design Individual giving 34 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Cut the clutter on off-the-page fundraising AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

On Feb. 10, Donald Trump sent Congress a budget request for the coming fiscal year that included $740.5 billion for “national security.”This huge amount — three-quarters of a trillion dollars! — ignored the COVID-19 epidemic that was already growing around the globe.Chinese medical workers have traveled to support Iran during the pandemic. Grassroots efforts include the Red Cross Society of China donating COVID-19 testing kits and other medical supplies to the Red Crescent Society of Iran.Three weeks later, the U.S. has become the country with the highest number of confirmed cases in the world — more than 161,000 as of March 30, and climbing rapidly.So what is the government planning to do with all that money allocated to the Pentagon and other institutions that supposedly protect us?Doesn’t the rapid increase in infected people here qualify as a threat to “national security”? Instead of lavishing huge resources on the military, shouldn’t the U.S. be using the money to help people here — and around the world — combat the virus?But that’s not what’s happening. Just the opposite.Many in the government and the Pentagon see the deadly virus as an “opportunity” to take even more aggressive action against countries that have not bowed down to the dictates of the U.S. imperialist ruling class.Some of what they’re debating leaked out in an article by Mark Mazzetti and Eric Schmitt, datelined Washington, in the March 28 New York Times: “Some top officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Robert C. O’Brien, national security adviser, have been pushing for aggressive new action against Iran and its proxy forces — and see an opportunity to try to destroy Iranian-backed militia groups in Iraq, as leaders in Iran are distracted by the pandemic crisis in their country.”Iran has suffered almost as many deaths from the coronavirus as the U.S., although it has only one-fourth the population. Yes, Iran must now certainly be “distracted” by the need to care for the tens of thousands of Iranians infected. It must be “distracted” by the pressing need to protect the people from more suffering during this unprecedented global pandemic.Iran has done nothing to hurt the people of the United States. How on Earth can picking a fight with Iran, and maybe even going to war with it, serve the “national interests” of the people here?Sanctions killing IranThis U.S. debate about taking “aggressive new action against Iran” is happening at a time when “sweeping U.S. sanctions are hampering Iranian efforts to import medicine and other medical supplies to confront one of the largest coronavirus outbreaks in the world.” (Washington Post, March 29) The previously robust health care system in Iran has already been drastically damaged by many years of U.S. sanctions.The Times article adds: “The debate is happening as top Pentagon officials and senior commanders worldwide are also expressing growing concerns about coronavirus cases expanding rapidly in the ranks, potentially threatening the military’s ability to field combat-ready troops.”Their “concern” is not about the well-being of the young people in the U.S. who have taken what often looks to be their only ticket out of poverty and joblessness. Pompeo and others in the administration are willing to send these soldiers to their deaths in a war over oil and profits.Do these politicians really care about the health of these military service people — other than begrudging what it would cost to replace them if they get sick and die from the virus?The U.S. ruling class has treated Iran as an enemy ever since a popular revolution in 1979 liberated its rich oilfields from control by U.S. and British companies. But Iran is not the enemy of workers here in the U.S. Our enemy is at home.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

News January 16, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 France and Mali urged to let journalists into war zones News May 17, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders calls on the Malian and French authorities to allow journalists to freely cover the military operations under way in Mali since 11 January. Both foreign and local journalists have been kept more than 100 km from the fighting ever since the start of the military intervention.“In war time, it is up to journalists and their news organizations, not the military, to determine the risk they are prepared to take in order to gather information,” Reporters Without Borders said.“It is imperative that journalists should be free to verify the situation on the ground for themselves without having to make do with the information provided by the authorities of the countries involved in the conflict, especially when the first claims of war crimes by soldiers are being made. The current situation constitutes a grave obstruction to the ability of journalists to do their job.”“Some journalists have managed to be ‘embedded’ with troops. This is a way of covering the fighting but it should not be the only way of reporting on the events surrounding the military intervention. The public should not have to settle for information and video footage acquired under military control or directly provided by the military.”Forced to comply with military directives that are keeping them far from the areas of operation by preventing them from going beyond the city of Ségou, the international and local media have been calling it a “war behind closed doors.”The French and Malian authorities are preventing journalists from getting within 100 km of the areas where fighting is taking place. It is particularly difficult of find out what is happening in the embattled city of Gao, where phone networks have been down since the start of the week, preventing any contact with local residents, journalists or anyone else.Several journalists who had been given permission to travel with French armoured vehicles as far as Sévaré were obliged to leave the convoy in Ségou, some distance short of their destination, yesterday morning.Reporters Without Borders has learned that a France 24 crew was stopped by the Malian authorities in Sévaré and was told they could go no further. Sévaré is on the edge of the war zone, which the French journalists had been trying to enter on their own.Photo: French troops arriving in Bamako on 15 January (Eric Feferberg / AFP) MaliAfrica News Organisation French reporter says he has been kidnapped in northeastern Mali News RSF_en RSF helps coordinate support for French journalist kidnapped in Mali June 8, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Mali Reporters Without Borders rallies former hostages in Paris, following the kidnapping of journalist Olivier Dubois.
