Pushy and unprofessional telemarketers are turning away some aspiring philanthropists from donating with Greenpeace NZ.
Pressuring, guilt tripping and in some cases withdrawing more money than originally agreed upon, are some of the criticisms levied against some staff at the New Zealand branch of the well-known environmental conservation organisation.
On Thursday, one would-be donor was left a voicemail message which said “come on, give us your money or f… off”.
Another voice in the background, seemingly on another call, yelled “what’s the amount you can donate … come on mate, don’t be a dick about it”.
They’re as chamring with fundraising as they are with their advocacy.
