when you have little to no money' date=' even 2 makes a diffrence[/quote']

Believe me, I have no money, I'm in shitloads of debt and i'm still only 17. By the time the 2 comes off my account every month there isn't anything left in it, but it still lets it come off even though i don't have an overdraft.

You sound worse than the pestering Amnesty International guy! It's only 5 a month he says!!

2 might not seem very much, and I bet there are a lot of people who say they can't afford it who then go out and spend ten times as much on booze or drugs or porn. But then, that's life for you.

Penny darling, you out tonight?

Don't you then get a 35 charge for going over when you're not allowed to? That's awfully silly just to be a supporter.

I thought this the first time it happened as well, but apparently not so I just kept it going...!

My friend's got an ace function on his card where if there's less than 10 left on your card, it still allows you to withdraw a tenner, best idea ever.

Exactly - one less pint a month + debit card = bingo! a supporter!

That would be ace for me! I had an old account with 9.23 in it from before I got a debit card. It was constantly taunting me until I got digital banking and just transfered 9 out. Wooo!

It's funny, I always feel bad when I turn down the Amnesty folk saying I can afford it, mainly because I can't afford to both support Ab-music and send 5 to Amnesty once a month...

Unfortunately when you're a student a little seems like an awful lot...

However the way I see it my 2 would just be going on booze anyway, so... it's a small price for me.

If you felt bad about turning down every charity who asked for your money you'd go crazy.

The way I see it is, I pay my taxes and I mostly have no idea what that goes to so I'm not going to start giving more money away when I don't see the benefits. I have no idea where money I'd give to Amnesty would end up.

Anyways, this isn't justification for not being a supporter. Upon my return in September, if I get a proper job, I'll sign right up.
