For the period of mid-August to September of 2003, World Vision chose to run again their 10,000 campaign in order to drive up the numbers of the sponsors of third world children. As was the case last year, the campaign proved to be so successful that they broke their intended mark and signed up a few hundred extra than was originally called for.
But times in the light of charities and reporting their numbers leads to a correction probably seen on the streets of corporate accounting. Following the blow out of the Red Cross' dealings and reporting of numbers and channeling of funds raised in campaigns the extra children might be culled in order to follow through with the advertising ideals of the campaign.
Smoke crack, write whacked.
Either that or the extra sign-ups could be used in next year's campaign to boost the spur much like that of the dummies and shills seen snooping the grounds and lots of auction sites across the country.
