Myeloma UK reports that in the 10 years since it joined JustGiving it has raised over £3 million through the site.Given that, according to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, the charity raised £2.8 million in 2013 and £3.2 million 2012, this suggests that giving via JustGiving has raised at least 10% of the charity’s income over the past decade.Myeloma UK Chief Executive Eric Low thanked the charity’s supporters for breaking through the £3 million barrier, adding:“Myeloma UK receives no government funding; it relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and fundraising activities, so please continue to be extraordinary by raising even more money to support our work.” Tagged with: Digital Justgiving Research / statistics  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisementcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Myeloma UK supporters raise over £3m on JustGiving in 10 years Howard Lake | 29 April 2015 | Newslast_img read more

No talk of expansion at College Football Playoff spring meetings

Four teams are good for now, they say, and quite possibly the seven years remaining on the current contract, The Dallas Morning News reported.”That’s my view and has been my view. … The four-team College Football Playoff has achieved exactly what was stated up front,” SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said.

Zero.That’s the consensus among Power 5 commissioners at the annual CFP spring meetings Wednesday in Irving, Texas.center_img Over the past five years, only two conferences have landed a team or teams in every College Football Playoff: the ACC and SEC. The Big Ten and Pac-12 have been shut out the past two years, and the Pac-12 has missed three of the five playoffs.Still, Scott said the current protocol has “really stood the test of time very nicely,” a big comment on the lack of momentum for change of any kind at meetings Swofford described as “business as usual.”The commissioners were scheduled to meet again Thursday morning, but the meetings are expected to conclude by noon CT.
