Mental issues... Attention seeker behavior. Seems so nice then flips out. Everything is drama.
No sympathy, as "not for profit" means their CEO gets his wages paid, free car, aircon office, business expense account for lunches, plane tickets, etc. THEN if there's any money left over it gets donated. Give to charity by all means - but walk in the door and hand it to them yourself - don't encourage this guilt-inducing rubbish, "But it's not-for-profit..." to make us feel guilty. It's your money, not theirs - and if they fired all those leeches, the charities would be receiving something like 40% I believe it is - only it would increase yet again - because people wouldn't be fed up being bled dry! Very annoying. Am taking my number off immediately. Probably because they are not scammers or fake charity collectors. They are a 30 year old company that fund-raise for NFP charities only Apple Marketing group are a legitimate business in which underpaid phone operators work their butts off to not be appreciated. The staff are abused constantly by potential supporters, and yet are expected to keep going. They only help charities that are not for profit charities. Unlike many of the charities out there. So many ppl here have stated they do not support charities by phone. Just a quick FYI, companies like Apple marketing are much more cost effective than trying to pay more than 10000 people per state to door knock or stand in the middle of a hwy shaking a tin.I have read all of the mission statements here. Yes I'm sure the calls can be annoying, but I have found that polity asking them to put me on a once a yr call list, or telling them I'm not in a position to support works much better than abusing them. Try and keep in mind that the caller is doing their job as asked to do, and a lot of them do believe in helping these charities. And as for not leaving a message, I'm pretty sure that by law they are not allowed to. However they can leave a verbal message for the person they are trying to contact if someone answers. And as I have worked in call centers previously, the only way you can be called more than once a day is if an answering machine picks up or there is no answer when call is connected. So just staying quiet on the other end puts you straight back into the dialer, saying no thanks stops you being called for a while. After reading so many comments here, my faith in humanity is truly fading. These ppl are not the devil or worse, the Australian Government, they are hard working, underpaid supporters. I don't give a sh*t about the company itself, but lets try and be a little more humane to those who are on the other end of the phone. It's like 2 mins of your day, not the end of the world Apple marketing group does not run a system that allows them to store that type of information. And as a charity, they are exempt from DNCR Had a call from this number asking to speak with the previous tenant.
The number hasn't been in her name for over 5yrs now.
Unfortunately the message here is never, ever give to charities that use telemarketing. These people have been ringing every day - sometimes more - after my wife gave money to a charity. I have asked them to stop but they just keep ringing. This is harassment, and the government needs to broaden the Do Not Call Register to stop these pests. Frequently get calls from this number on my business phone line that is listed on the ACMA do not call register. I never pick up and they never leave a message. Thanks to this forum I sent email to the Apple Marketing website, http://www.applemarketing.com.au/contact.asp and placed my number on their do not call register. Hope it works. It would seem that they can also generate calls FROM your phone line thus increasing costs , check you phone bill for their number (07) 5560 4900 Thanks for letting me know who this number belongs to. I will now register them on the Do Not Call List. These people seem to be active again... They asked how big my penis was, I told them 21 inches long and 4 inches wide. these people call every line in our office and hang up. I've tried calling back but am placed on hold for ages so the calls keep coming.
There is no way I would support this organisation.
get a dictionary! They are a "fundraising company", ie their business is to raise funds - for a percentage of what they raise. Then the 'charity' uses another percentage for admin. How much do those who you think you are helping, eventually get to use? I'd much rather give to people/organisations I actually know, than to someone canvassing for a percentage. Just my view. Tired of missing calls and no message left. Wastes my time. They called my house this afterrnoon. Who are they? i have recieved a few call from this company who if you do research on are a fundraising company just trying to gather donations to help people who are less fortunate than ourselves the first time they rang i was a bit unsure weather to donate although the second time around i found out what they do and realized it was a good cause. its unfortunate that many people on this site are not interested in helping worthy causes yet have money to buy unnecessary material possessions. when will people start thinking of others This group are a charity organisation who Next time they call have a footy whistle handy and blow their eardrums out. Maybe then they'll get the idea not it call.
