oh and:

Yes, the Standard Fees for the "charity" Fundraising Industry in the UK and Australia (probably most other countries too) are:

* cash raised: 50%

* direct debits signed up: 100% of the first year's payments

So if a chugger signs you up for monthly donations, and you cancel after 10mths, the charity receives precisely nothing and your intended recipients receive on average less than 15% of that nothing.
