Foundation, Amazon and the shifting crisis

314

A quick and easy win: Amazon are one of the few outlets still open and many of us are likely to use them in the weeks ahead.  If you select Celtic FC Foundation as your chosen AmazonSmile charity, they will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price to the Foundation.

With tens of thousands of Celtic fans mostly restricted to online shopping, that quickly aggregates up.  The Foundation is needed more today than at any point since its formation, anything we can do to fill the coffers will help.

Yesterday, Foundation chief executive, Tony Hamilton, said, “The situation for many of our neighbours has worsened in the past few days as this crisis has shifted. People are losing income, and with it their ability to feed themselves and their families.

“Our top priority is assisting with that in the communities where we have relationships with existing partner organisations.”

“Thanks to everyone who has made this possible for us. Even in such uncertain and difficult times, the consistency has been the selflessness of the Celtic support who have stepped up to offer assistance when it’s needed.”

The money pledged for our Covid-19 response now stands at £175k.  There are difficult and uncertain times for everyone, but no club in Britain has responded as comprehensively.

And remember: AmazonSmile, it costs you nothing……

  1. Happy Friday eve from Kentucky where the mercury is rising to 75 degrees today. (23 degrees in real money!)

     

     

    This working from home stuff is old already. Get to walk the dog at lunch and what not but feels like a punishment rather than a privilege. 

     

     

    Be well and safe all and God bless the NHS. 

     

     

    HH!

  2. The same Amazon,who’s owner Jeff Bezos,the world’s richest man who makes $230,000 an hour, has started a Crowdfunding page to pay his staff, talk about immoral?

  3. South Lanarkshire Council, think it’s a good idea to stop bin collections, here comes rats with more diseases, fly tipping as the dump is closed, surely this is essential work?

  4. Just got a SPFL PDF on next year’s League format, 14 in top flight,split after playing each other twice, cant format it to post it….

    Seeing that a certain company/ clubby amalgamation can boast a fan base of circa 500 million,surely we can expect a donation from ‘ them’ that will put Celtic’s effort(s) into the shade..zzzzzzzzzzzzz

    This was my preferred configuration a couple of years ago – 16 probably too many (if Hamilton can survive in a 12 who can survive in a 16!) but 14 just about right, removes staleness, big teams play twice after split etc, balance probably easier between home and away ties…

    For someone to watch loose women is unbelievable.

     

    For someone to actually admit to it on a blog is unbelievable.

     

    For that someone to be MARSPAPA,well that’s believable 😉

    Great seeing your blog name once again…..

  20. Anybody got a link to the Emily Maitlis grilling on Newsnight last night ? Ta Parkheadcumsalfor God loves a trier trier!!! Good luck H H Hebcelt

  21. My elderly neighbour is fanatical about being 1st in the street to put the bins out. Our collection is tomorrow afternoon. His bins are out already for a few hours.

     

     

    In the last few hours , looking out my window, several dozen walkers have went past, family groups, dog walkers in pairs, many single walkers, joggers and cyclers. Some people have moved the bins, to let their kids cycle past or to manouvere prams and buggies round them.

     

     

    Anyone could be shedding the virus.

     

     

    Not tomorrow the bin men come, I think 5 of them in a crew, in the one cabin, any of them could be shedding the virus. So on their shift they must touch absolutely hundreds and hundreds of bins. They go about their business, efficiently and cheerily, they love than random push of an empty bin back onto the pavements in no particular order.

     

     

    In my street, the home owners seem to take a pleasure in being fastest to get the bins off the street.

     

    Big population of oldies here.

     

     

    Now how does that virus spread again ?

     

     

    To bin collect or not bin collect, that is the question.

  22. equal money to top 3 teams? Why? Either should be paid out in postions now or equal shares to each team? deliberately done to muddy waters. Even in national crisis the OBs keep trying to cheet. makes no sense whatsoever

  23. As to Amazon, ok they donate something to the foundation good.

     

     

    However their work now should also be limited to essential supply chains only. You know the necessities.

     

     

    People still having to go to work, drivers still delivering.

     

     

    That is not a lockdown.

  24. Bin collections CANNOT be stopped It would be helping spread disease. I will bring rubbish up to council offices

  25. Re – online shopping.. I nearly bought a couple of CDs online but surely these should b

     

    not being delivered. hardly necessary. Normally women order 10 dresses and send t9 back.. Please let this example enot going on at moment

  26. !!Bada Bing!! on

    Document says 14 teams, play twice then split,Top 8 play each other twice, means 40 games ffs…better doing top 6 playing 36 games
