Here's some interesting news:
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has achieved the highest score for charities for the second year running in research on reputation carried out by the Reputation Institute (RI).
Remind me again. What's different about the RNLI?

Oh yes:

The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 139,000 lives.

The RNLI have it in their consitution, I believe, that they will never accept government funding.  
Wise people, they know what it would lead to.  
If they ever renege on that committment, that will be when my contributions cease. Well, my voluntary contributions, anyway.  
Until then, I am proud to support them, and happy not to need their services. But you never know...

Whats different about the RNLI?  Well for a start of your mother used to support it going to ladies luncheons wearing a hat and dragging me along as well.  Its bright in colour, everyone goes to the seaside and thinks gosh better support them or if i get into trouble on the beach they wont be able to help.  Lots of little boys think they would like to be a lifeboat skipper.....they have a good shop too and funny christmas cards

The RNLI is a racist organisation. This is because Whites donate to this worthy cause in a numerically disproportionate way, population wise.  Also, the lifeboat rescue crews of volunteers must surely have rejected all the non-Whites who flocked to offer their services in order to end up with such a racial imbalance.  
 Any White 'racist' who wishes to avoid, totally, the company of Britain's Third World immigrants can either got to The Proms or join a volunteer - type civil society organisation.
