Comic relief - now

I can't remember feeling this sad watching those heartbreaking videos.
 
Gives so much perspective to our shallow lives

    It's great to have something so positive, but these aren't a one day a year problem. It needs a wider approach.

    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

    but we have to watch tho, we need to be reminded how good we have it and how the onus is on us to help people who cant help themselves

    You only have to show the human element in any real problem to get to people where it counts. These things are hearybreaking.
     
    Like when you see stuff about kids who need to be taken into care, these poor innocent people who just need help from the community.

    A mate of mine is saying on fb that he's watching but not donating cos they money goes to africa not ireland. he is very very close to getting unfriended right now


    I assume he totally missed the bit about the money also helping people in the UK which I'm sure is close enough to make it worth donating even if for some strange reason you dont like the idea of saving kids in Africa (which is VERY odd if you ask me)
     
    Anywho so far it's been entertaining & unbelievably eye opening.
     
    Have just text my meagre donation but I'm guessing it all counts

    No offense but people like that really get my goat as well, a text is less than half an hours wages FFS
     
    Well they just got another text from me...that kid being resusitated (spelling???) was more than enough for another text & pretty much sent me over the edge.
     
    I will be a little tight this month now & no supps for me but I'm damn sure they need it much more than I do.

    I totally agree Spencerslide with all you have said, so sad, and there's me trying to loose weight on a cut, how stupid can you get!
     
    Puts all into perspective and makes the greed in this world even more senseless.
     
    Brings back the memory of the cars song accompanying the Ethiopian famine which whenever I saw it turned me into a blubbering baby.
