Band Aid mini thought

I wonder if the Band Aid fallout marks the beginning of the end of the ‘sponsor me for charity’ idea. We may be starting to learn to give to a cause because it is worthy of receipt of our money rather than in response to a challenge being completed or because a celebrity has endorsed it. Any thoughts?

    I must admit I’m in the ‘even if you don’t like it buy it’ camp. Band Aid was way ahead of the game n Bono & Bob deserve loads of credit. I wonder if left without prompting by celebs how many kids wouldn’t be alive today if we were left to ourselves to donate (Comic Relief, Children in Need, Band Aid etc).

    • I agree. There is no denying the good of it and I like both of them. It is the unfortunate biproduct that has developed that now charity is given bot in response to the cause but often to the bath of beans or marathon. Just a wee thought really
