Sarah Oliver is one of the best charities I had ever seen because of their honesty. Yes in a way it is a business but it is honest and it benefits the economy. This company is considered a charity because all of it's employees are elderly people from senior homes. This company gives them employment and a sense of purpose. Many elderly people felt useless but Sarah Oliver gave them a purpose. It is the only company I know that gives employment for the elderly who are usually discriminated by many companies. You can see they enjoy what they do. Some of the sales of these bags goes to many elderly homes.
