    As you may see from my previous posts, my brother in law recently died at the age of 38 from a heart attack, leaving his MS suffering partner and 6 yr old son (soon to be my godson). I intend to do some fund raising for them (a trust fund has already been set up in the sons name), as well as for help the heroes, my personal preferred charity.
    Now, i appreciate that one persons worthy cause may not be anothers and that people may not feel the need to contribute towards a trust fund for a young boy who is not their responsibility. Is there an acceptable ratio/ guideline for splitting sponsorship i.e. 50/50% split between h4h and the trust fund?
  2. i'd say that 50/50 seems about right
    though as long as you're upfront you could set the ratio at whatever level you like
    what've you got planned?
    if it involves bathsful of beaked beans i'll stump up a fiver :D
