Those outrageously long adverts appealing for money on behalf of starving children/snow leopards/bunny rabbits with wooden legs make me cringe. These are charities that use their donations on ads that sometimes go on for the entire length of the ad break. They are crass and over sentimental to the extent that they are clearly aimed at the gullible. I suspect that any money that does reach the target causes is tiny in comparison with the amount spent on staff wages and administration fees.
