    What condition is it in and how much does the P&P cost?

    No thanks :D I'm a miserable beggar, detest this form of fund raising :p Those who can afford the most get something back for their "donation" The widow's mite, which is often quite a bit of a sacrifice, gets absolutely nothing. I know lots of the charities do it, and obviously they must raise a fair bit, but it puts me off completely. I'd much prefer a " make a donation and we'll enter you in a raffle" situation.
    You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

    I don't understand. You can suggest a price for the wallet on Twitter, then what? Whoever offers the most wins?

    Do I need it?
    Can I afford it?

    Will I use it?
    Is it worth it?

    Can I use my own mantra

    Do I want it?
    Is it for a good cause?

    Works on shoes and handbags very well ( brightening up my day is a definate good cause)

    lol

    I'm all for helping oxfam but really not buying paypals attempt to look all fluffy after the wikileaks fiasco.
    Only after the last tree has been cut down,
    Only after the last river has been poisoned,
    Only after the last fish has been caught,
    Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten

    I refuse to go near twitter (or facebook) so looking like I don't exist again.
