Boring, but important

Boring, but important

[rant]

Today in the UK it’s “Red Nose Day” a.k.a. Comic Relief. This is a day when supposedly well respected and sensible thespians make complete fools of themselves in order to raise bucket loads of money.

The money goes to Africa and within the UK. It helps support AIDs orphans, the elderly, child soldiers, … the list goes on.

It is a biannual event, the brain child of Richard Curtis (he of “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Notting Hill” fame) , and hosted by Mr. Dawn French, Lenny Henry.

Without donations from the public and businesses, none of this would be possible. As they say: give as much or as little as you can. As little as £1 can give a child in Africa one meal, everyday, for a week. We use one pound coins to put in shopping trolleys so we don’t nick off with them. £1: that’s nothing, really.

I’m not made of money: hey, I’m a student! But I think even I can stretch to a quid.

I’m sorry if this appears to be a rant, but in the wake of the £300 million that the British public raised for the tsunami appeal, I hope that this giving mentality continues for a very long time.

Normal service will be resumed shortly! I promise.
