Ok that picture made my day...

Seriously, when I see the commercials (especially around christmas time) it pisses me off.

I know many of these people don't have any education, but its just common sense - if you can't afford to feed yourself, WHY IN THE HELL WOULD YOU HAVE 10 KIDS? (and its also amazes me that they let 50 flies crawl on their face)

As to giving money to help Africa, I think not since most of the people wouldn't get a dime of it. These countries in need have corrupt governments, they are going to take your money and laugh.


But most importantly, who cares about Africa, I am not from there, if I am going to donate some of my hard earned money, its going to be to the country I live in.

It's not just a lack of an education. These people have been destitute for a very long time. To the point where trying to live is all they can do. They're not looking for pity, and they're not looking to be patronized or looked down upon -- they need help, lots of it. They've made their pleas, but the poor in most cases don't have the means to reach out to the world and ask for help. Which is why 3rd party groups bring areas like these to the forefront so that people (you know, compassionate people) can help in any way. This isn't something that can be fixed immediately. Like anything, you need to set a foundation and work for the ground up.

And these people are not having 10 kids each. There are many families living there, and plenty of kids who lose their parents and gravitate to other areas. I mean really, how many people live in the continent of Africa? About 860 million. I'm sure we can all name two COUNTRIES with a much higher birth rate.

obviously they do look for pitty if you ask me. look at all the feed the children stuff you see. you never see them with close on or anything like that. they feed off you feeling sorry. but yeah. there are hundreds of organizations that are helping africa every day but i still see no change whatsoever.. eh it almost seem like a waste of time.

Wow a vigilante Mod
Anyway It has always seemed pointless for me to give money to africa cos the corrupt governments just get most of it and then spend it on things to make the people's lives worse.
