Ryanair out of small donations to charity you give from scratch card sales why do you give so much of this to Jack & Jill Foundation in Ireland who's CEO is called Jonathon Irwin who is a former Ryanair employee ?...
'' YES''Ryanair run an on-flight scratch-card, where flight attendants ask if anyone wants to buy one for €2, with a % of that money going to charity and a prize of €1,000,000 up for grabs, along with other cash prizes and cars.
On November 5th this post on Facebook started to go Viral:
d distributed 55,000 euro to charities, ie about 0.3%, or less than 1 cent for each 2 euro scratch card went to charity. There is also only one card per year with the chance of winning the million euro, but if you are lucky enough to get this card, you are then invited to choose from 125 envelopes, only one of which has a cheque for 1 million euro. The million euro will only be won once every 125 years. This is an utterly cynical way for Michael O'Leary and Ryanair to increase their profits, using a children's cancer charity to do so. They could hardly stoop any lower.
This post basically states that Ryanair are using the charity aspect & the difficulty of actually winning to primarily make profits with reportedly only 0.3% of income going to charities.
But the Ryanairdontcare campaign website said: “We believe a high percentage of profit is kept by Ryanair.”
To win the big prize you have to scratch a Yes on the card then enter a draw online.
If you are the lucky one passenger a year to be picked, it’s not over.
At an event you have to pick one of 125 envelopes – only one of which holds the jackpot cheque.
The rest contain €10,000. Ryanairdontcare claims Ryanair sells about 15 scratchcards per flight.
At 1,600 flights a day that would add up to an estimated £12.5million. The site wants an investigation.
Ryanair said: “Our scratch cards continue to generate very significant funds for charity.
“Over the past six years we have donated well over €1million to charity.”
“The information in this Facebook post is entirely speculative and false. The author has no basis for his fanciful and inaccurate guestimates. “
“We don’t disclose how many scratch cards are sold, as this is commercially sensitive. However, over the past five years Ryanair has donated over €2m to almost 50 charities across 12 different EU countries. These charities cover a wide range of hospitals, schools, child welfare and sports club fundraisings. Over the last 12 months alone more than €500,000 was donated to charitable causes.
“Over the last five years the €1m top prize has not (yet) been won, but over €1,500,000 has been won by Ryanair customers in free cars and cash prizes.”
