    Smile Children in Need

    Keith - I hope that this post is not 'Out of Order'

    Hi Guys,

    As you are probably aware - today is Children in Need day again.

    I have been supporting this charity for a long time now and I have seen at first hand some of the good that has come out of it, helping children in all sorts of ways.
    Having spent my career working with children I can say that there is no better sight in the world than when a child is made happy - especially a child who is truly in need.
    In my travels to the Phils. this year I have managed to help a few children in different ways already. I am sure you know that a lot of Filipino children need a lot of help.

    All I am saying my friends, is that if you have a few spare pennies today - please consider giving them to Children in Need.

    Thanks,

    Al.

    Hi Allan, i agree with you there are lots of children in need. How about depositing any amount to the Kapuso Foundation ? To those who has spare pennies can make a deposit to Metrobank or PCIB bank. Accounts are being flashed on channel 7 every after the news at 8:00pm. This foundation has been helping lots of poor children everywhere in the Philippines.

    I get taxed about 140 for a TV channel I never watch, and then they spend my tax on 7hrs of charity grabbing. Why don\'t they do one for cancer? Our war injured? etc...etc....I don\'t know any kids in this country that need something more than a child in Darfor.The BBC was setup as an information service, begging for money is not information, nor a service.

    My hubby has pledge a few penny lastnight.

    It's good to help sometimes
    There is always death and taxes; however, death doesn't get worse every year.

    Not trying to be controversial, but I stopped donating to this particular charity a few years ago.
    When news leaked out, well proven, that they did allocate some of the Kids money to other causes which had nothing to do with children... Especially some lesbian groups.
    I am all for cancer research, Poppy appeals, Heart Foundation, etc. but I have to draw the line somewhere.

    What happened to all the money raised by Saint "BOB" with the concerts...?

    I give, when I see something worthwhile.
    I totally ignore people shaking collection tins in front of my face.

    And I resent the fact that the British Legion Never gets a penny from the Lottery funds.
    But lesbians and Homosexuals do. Why...?

    Dammit, I am ranting....
    Ciao for now

    what about help joe fund

    just the war in Iraq is costing the tax payer 1bn-a-year

    and
    The total cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is expected to be $1.6 trillion (770bn) double the amount President George Bush says it will cost.

    A report entitled The Hidden Costs of the Iraq War says the true cost of the wars is almost double the $804bn the White House has requested for military operations in 2008.

    The report, prepared by Democrats in Congress, says an average American family of four has already paid more than $20,000 to fund the President's military adventures.

    What annoys me about Children in Need is that you see loads of ordinary people who have raised many a few hundred quid by maybe doing a sponsored walk or something and holding up a cheque and then there's the multi-millionnaire celebrities who appear on the programme who have "given up their time for free!" How about seeing then actually holding up cheques showing how much money they've actually given. Then maybe they don't, perhaps they feel that giving their time is enough.
    Seeing multi-millionaires appealing to ordinary people to give cash is immoral.
    Between them all they could easily top the 19 million given by the public.

    Just my thoughts

    Talking of begging..... What do forum members think of beggars in the Philippines?
    When I'm with the wife and her family and we're approached by beggars, usually kids or old women, the wife may give them a few coins but seems to give them the cold shoulder perhaps cos she can see them targetting me as a "rich" (I wish) Westerner.
    Last year a kid came up to me with his hand out and all I had on me was a tissue, a pack of Polo mints and a wallet full of 1000 Peso notes. So there I am on holiday and it's hard to get money out of the bank in the provinces so I'm not going to give away P1000 to anyone who asks so I offer him the mints or the tissue. He couldn't have been that hungry cos he refused the mints I reckon most beggars aren't genuinely hungry they're just too lazy to work.
    Anyway, I accept that there are a lot of very poor people in the RP but should we just hand out cash to everyone who hassles us while we're there?

    Thoughts anyone?
