news > 27/03/2014 - Buddy, can you spare a dime?

This month there has been lots of research published about poverty in the UK and how there are now more working families living below the poverty-line than ever before in the UK.

I was thinking about the Bing Crosby song 'Buddy can you spare a dime'. Also beautifully sang by George Michael recently.

Such a haunting song, all about a man doing his best work only to end up begging for a dime.

"Once I built a railroad, made it run
Made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it's done
Brother can you spare a dime?
Once I built a tower to the sun
Brick and rivet and lime
Once I built a tower, now it's done
Brother can you spare a dime?"

Utterly heart-breaking isn't it?

Not only are waged families using foodbanks, they are also accessing Giving World's services through our charity networks more than ever to make ends meet.

We've had to get really creative about how we continue to fund these vital services.

If we are able to meet beneficiary need at the time of need, we can have an enormous social impact in local communities diverting families away from poverty. We are able to do that for just 57p per person.

So buddy, if you can spare a dime, please donate here. And as the saying goes, every little helps!
