    If it`s real, it`s great, in countries kids are fighting wars believe it or not, and this is a great way to help them.


    The knife donation was awsome!

    I didn`t watch the whole thing, because I couldn`t wait to help, so I`m packing up a few guns I don`t need right away and sending them off.

    At first it reminded me of the time Penn & Teller Bullshhit! convinced people to ban H2O - but later in this viral ad I realised that yeah... it`s just a stupid viral campaign.

    So how do they propose we FIX this problem? I get it that child soldiers are bad, but how about an ad campaign about what I can do to help, because there isn`t anything you can actually do that will stop the trend.

    Don`t give children guns. They have poor aim and low endurance. Sure they have a shock factor, but it wears off.

    anyways.
    it makes me think of commercials, and how they can be made to sell everything. And the public just swallows it whole if it has some catchy music and artsy editing.

    AGit, already knew about Child Soldiers, thanks though. This and the Camp Okuta piece really don`t do anything to combat child soldiers, they`re both just satiric ads that don`t bring about anything.

    AGit > totally true.

    Anyway, I was hoping to see some of these child soldiers cheering at a new tank they were just sent screaming things like "Awesome! We get to use this??". Heh, now THAT would have been funny.

    I get the point. But unfortunately in the ces pool that is war-torn Africa, there`s not much you can do for anyone without risking your own life. Aid supplies are routinely stolen from shipments by militias, missionaries are killed all the time and sadly a lot of these children are brainwashed before they turn 7. Watch the move "The Blood Diamond" if you want to see the reality. Sometimes it`s better just to let them destroy each other than interfere and risk our own citizens.

    first of all its a shame that that is what you got out of that movie, and secondly do you really think that that movie portrayed africa perfectly? it was based in a nation that was in the middle of a civil war. i mean, c`mon, the point of the movie was that our greed created the situation in the first place.

    I was simply pointing out that the carnage in that movie is the daily REALITY occurring in various parts of Africa. And if you honestly think that we can "cure" this situation by ceasing to buy jewelery or throwing money and food at the problem (which will get stolen anyway), you`re just being ignorant and living in a fantasy world. If you would like to "donate" your money to help child soldiers get guns (which this ad got right since most donations end up in the wrong hands), by all means pay up, because I won`t be. I`d rather donate to the poor in this country first.

    most programs that except donations do give the proceeds to aiding the poor. the problems in africa are more due to corrupt leadership. i think its disgusting that africa has become a way for americans to pay off a guilty conscious, but these people should not be screwed because of these corrupt politicians. zimbabwe is on the verge of becoming a war torn nation because of robert mugabe. i don`t think that how we are aiding africa is doing much, but if the united states would take even just diplomatic action i think a lot of people could be helped.

    I never like when organizations say in so many words, "If you`re not part of the solution, you`re part of the problem."

    Well, there`s 10 million problems. I guess I`ll donate a 1/100th of a penny to each cause then.

    It is Human to Want to help.The Things that go on in Our world....The Things that will Come to our World.... To stand by and do nothing? Evil prevails only, and Only when good man turn their backs. The day i stop caring, will be the day the world is at ease. until then, Semper Fi, learn, and Take care of your body, for it is Your Temple, Cherish It. we dont have long until the storm hits, and when it does, will you be ready?

    No mention of the fact that many of these children are being trained by Wahhabi Muslims, Communists, And Tyrants. And all those above are funded by the greed for diamonds, gold, etc..

    Watch the movie "Lord Of War"

    i`m sorry, but i doubt that we should just take what hollywood tells us africa is like hook, line and sinker. these movies rarely give any insight into the issues and more or less just make americans feel bad for africa. i know i may piss people off by saying this, but there is a cultural tie between the war torn nations of africa and the middle east...

    I`m guessing that this is some kind of ironic awareness ad. Bringing attention to what is going on over there. Because as a joke, it`s really not funny... at all.

    Children are taken from their family and forced to fight a civil war, forced to kill there own people. That is if your a boy, if your a girl they will just rape you... repeatedly.

    It`s so sad, when both the rebels and the government want to exploit you...

    Most the people in Africa have no affiliation with ideals because they are uneducated, oppressed, and spend the entire day trying to survive.

    that`s just not true, plenty of people live stable lives in africa, what i was suggesting, because i don`t think that people put the pieces together here, was that the common cultural influence is islam.

    So? Not all Muslims are homicidal maniacs. What I`m saying is that the general population of Africa, are the victims. They are exploited by their governments and rebel forces. By plenty I hope you mean very little, because in many places, having a stable life most likely means you took advantage of someone.

    that`s just not true, plenty of people live stable lives in africa, what i was suggesting, because i don`t think that people put the pieces together here, was that the common cultural influence is islam.
