There's a few different companies that run these adds, and I just can't help but think they're running a scam. They claim that by sending them x amount of money a month, you'll be able to help a specific child in need in rural Africa. When you join up, you get a monthly update with pictures on your specific child. So one naturally wonders what the choosing process of what child gets "helped" is. And beyond that, if these people are able to afford professionally produced commercials in another country, they're merely sitting around all the time with their big expensive film crew, (and the tables of doughnuts that go along with them,) taking monthly pictures? It just seems too easy to me for these people to take a bunch of pictures of somber looking children, and send you nice packages with propaganda telling you where your money is going. I'm all for helping those in difficult situations, and I support the cause if it's legit, but it just seems so suspect to me. Agree?
