PART ONE: READING (15pts)
Charities are independent organizations that help the poor, the homeless, children, old people and animals. They are involved with human rights, education, medical research and conservation of the environment.
In 1997, there were about 180 000 charities in Britain, with a total income of £18 billion. Many charities that are now well known throughout the world, such as "Oxfam" and "Amnesty International", began in Britain. Americans are also enthusiastic supporters of charities. In 1995, they gave over $ 116 billion.
"Oxfam" has aid programmes to help poor people overseas, especially the victims of natural disasters. Other well-known charities working in Britain include "Barnado's", which helps children, and "Age Concern" and "Help the Aged" which support old people. "Shelter" provides food and a place to stay for the jobless and the homeless.
In recent years, the "Telethon" has proved effective method of fund-raising. During an evening of popular television programmes, television stars ask the public to telephone and promise money to the charities involved. Other fund-raising activities include fêtes and jumbles sales.
