    This seems to becoming more common and in most cases leads to an embarrassingly paltry amount of money being raised. In some cases, the total remains zero throughout.

    I sort of like the idea but I don't like Facebook being involved in any way, neither do I like being pressured into donating to something just because it's someone's birthday (and it appears, they're under no obligation to donate anything themselves).

    So for my birthday, I won't be asking anyone to donate any money anywhere (but they can buy me a drink, if they want).

    For my birthday, I'd like people to buy a goat.

    Helpfully, I own the goat in question, I'd just like someone to buy it and take it away. Companion, guard goat, kebab, new hipster craze - I don't care, I just want it gone.

    I'm sure there's probably a small free and efficient website or app that will allow you to post up a birthday, xmas or whatever list that can be accessed easily without the likes of facebook being involved.

    If there isn't there should be...
