Charity advertising fail ?

If you would like to be really condescending when asking the hard pressed Irish taxpayer  for money, I suggest you hire the geniuses that came up with this poster. While the basic premise is true, in the current climate it’s probably not the best idea to talk down to the people you want money from.

    Already sent a complaint to the ASA. Charity and government guilt tactics should never be in the same room together.

  2. I’m being attacked on Haven’s Facebook page right now for making the same point, actually.

  3. Yes, I agree. It’s propaganda at its worst .

    The basic premise of the advert is false. Haitians don’t want to pay water charges, any more than Irish people do. Haitians would love safe, potable water.
