A couple of weeks back—prompted by workmates Gayle, Martin and Adam—I sent an email to everyone I knew on Campus, drawing their attention to the interesting motivations of the people sponsoring Operation Christmas Child, a charitable effort to distribute gift parcels to disadvantaged kids around the World being promoted to the staff of our vast, sinister genetic research complex. Others have been much stronger critics of the organisation.

Wiqqi took an interest too and pointed out to me that the normally too-politically-correct-for-words Co-op supermarkets were also supporting the appeal. He (and his friends) wrote to them expressing similar concerns, though Wiqqi obviously wasn’t prompted by the same anti-religious cyncism that drove me.

In today’s Guardian—I actually paid for it this morning—I noticed this article. Nice work.
