Wonder if we can put together like a "Blowjobs for Africa" concert to raise awareness.
You realise creating fire takes resources in itself right, the poorest and most needy don't have a stove in their kitchen they can just turn on, or a kettleWhat really pisses me off is when they show dying people then say it is all down to bacteria in the water, JUST BOIL THE FUCKING WATER.
1: Yes, I'am bothered by these commercials as they show very graphical pictures of things I don't wish to see nor want anyone else to see for that matter. The point these commercials want to get across can be done without trying to guilt me or shock me into opening my wallet.
2: Yes, I get angry because as a sentient being I understand that there are evil people behind the suffering of those poor fucks on those commercials. I also understand that for an entire nation to suffer like that and live in that type of hardship there must be a very powerful agency behind it or the majority of the population are pure evil and make out to make people suffer as much as possible, one of the two.
3&4: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123758895999200083.html, and that's not all of the money.
5 and beyond: I'm not going to attempt being an asshole to you as you probably beat me on experience. You believe what you wish and I'll do the same.
argue pretty strongly that it hasn't. The west has given just over $1 trillion in aid to Africa since 1950, but all that money hasn't seen much return - for example, between 1970 and 1998, poverty in Africa rose from 11% to 66%.
Unfortunately it seems to be working as the quantity of those commercials are increasing every year. Something else that bothers me is how these cameramen can just stand idly by and watch a kid who's skinnier than a skeleton with 500 flies around him/her fade away.
Where is the ambulance and the hot bowl of soup? I paid for that bowl of soup, where is it?!

I gave to charity once, it felt like a waste of money. The worst are those fuckers that stand on corners and try to sign you up to a program.
If you really want to help you are probably well off giving Bill Gates your money than sending it to most charaties, funny aint it?.
