I want to no tax on aid to the poor.

Michele Mckeown - October 28 2011, 4:40 PM

I am a pensioner in the UK who is trying to support an orphanage with 40 children -receiving no state and very little private aid.I would like to raise funds and send clothing and things they need without it being hold up in customs.

I have heard of people paying $$$$ to get things for the poor out of Haitian customs.Mail sent does not arrive, I want to send presents to the children for Christmas but I know it will be held up.Can I send it to you Michel so you can make certain it arrives?

I work long hours making things to sell for the children.
