I'm just wondering if anyone has seen this new AIDS Commercial, about how millions of children become orphaned each year from parents dying of AIDS.

It is one of the most disturbing commercials I have ever seen! It gets its message out, but OMG! You're left horrified after it's over!

randy i think i know the commercial you're talking about.

i saw a rather disturbing and extremely sad commercial several years ago about poor children in Equador :( it touched me sooo much. that commercial made me want to cry. so i ended up sending in a letter to Children International, and i have an adopted boy from Equador i send money to http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I did a report on AIDS for my speech class. Very sad indeed, especially for the children born with HIV.

A child born of AIDS has no choice at all.

Another commercial I hate to see is the one for Christian Service Funds. :( I don't like seeing commercials where they talk about how like 8,000 children around the world die each night. :( Again, it's for a good cause, but they just horrify you beyond belief!

I saw the commercial again last night, twice in fact, and I thought to write down what was actually said.

The commercials shows kids having to clean themselves in rivers, trying to find food in landfills, and wandering the streets of deserted cities by themselves. During the course of the commercial it says that every year, 14 million kids become orphans worldwide from parents dying from AIDS and that that's equivalent to all children under the age of 5 in the US.

The strangest thing though, is that this commercial is funded by the UN. :confused: Since when has the UN started making commercials?

We often have ads like that over here, animal cruelty ads make me very sad too.

A lot of AIDS ads get shown around red nose day.

Comic Relief (red nose day) is a charity that deals with AIDS (among other things).

People get sponsered to do silly thing like sit in a bathtub of baked beans for example :D
And you can buy red noses and they are differant each time, this years had a face on it.

They raise a lot of money http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

We probably do, but I've more than likely not paid enough attention to it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
