One of my wonderful team (WT) came in to my office earlier.  This was the conversation between us…

WT: What are we going to do about the guy who has done a skydive for us?

Me: How much did he raise?

WT: €20

Me: God. That isn’t a huge amount.

WT: No

Me: Don’t they cost a few hundred quid to do, with the surplus you raise going to charity?

WT: Yes

Me: So he basically covered the cost of his sky dive using the Red Cross name, but actually he has only raised €20 more than the cost for the skydive.

WT: Yes.

Me: In other words, he has got money from people to pay for his skydive, and they think it is coming to charity.

WT: Yes.

Me: Did he contact us before hand so we could have had a conversation with him to head off something like this happening?

WT: No.

Me: Ok. Send it back.

WT: Send it back?

Me: Yes. Send the money back. I don’t want to be a part of this.

WT: Me neither.

Me: Great.
