People Just Cant Afford It!!!!
Do you think that we should stop donating until we get the countries back to some normality?
We are in the worst financial crisis ever here in Britain and in America yet we are still getting bombarded with the donate to charities adverts, when most people are out of work and struggling to make ends meet financially. We have businesses collapsing and going into administration, we have jobs becoming fewer and fewer, we have millions on benefits, we have no certain future of what will happen and yet we have to listen to the problems of other countries when our countries are going through the worst time ever.
Take Christmas for example on Christmas day I put the television on to watch a film with my family, and every time there was a break, the first advert to come on was a one about donating to charity and the suffering in other countries. I know they are having a hard time over there but so are we here in Britain and its not fair bombarding people like this, when there is not enough money to support our own country.
Dont get me wrong I am not a monster, I do give to charities such as the help the heroes, victim support but only when I can afford to like everyone else, but right now people can not afford to give money away at the minute so I think these adverts should rethink their strategies until we can get the countries back to some normality, because the money being sent over to them could be used to help the homeless and jobless here in the UK and America and also re-fluctuate the economies.
It makes you believe that if you don't donate money then people will judge you as if your some kind of monster, when in fact charity begins in the home, and right now our people need the money more than anything else, why dont some of the other richer countries deal with the problems abroad just until we can sort ourselves out?
You even get celebrities promoting the charities, well good for them, why don't they donate all their money to those charities seen as they can afford it, but stop guilt tripping people because pretty soon people will get sick and tired of this and slowly the donations will stop altogether.
I know that there will be mixed responses to this but at the same time some things just have to be said, even if they are controversial its still needs to be said.
