"The pennies will help pay for food, water, medical supplies and high efficiency stoves."
How do you know it will reach the ones that need it?
The way things are there, it is most likely that you are collecting money or supplies that will NEVER reach the intended.

At least they're doing something positive and trying to make a difference. What are you doing except complaining about something you probably know nothing about anyway?

That is a horrible thing to say. At least they are trying to do something to help people. What have you done? And for your information nothing as horrible as Darfur is happening in America.

I believe that what they are doing is admirable. America does not have as many problems as Darfur. I promise to do my part to help Darfur.

To all of you who are opposed to helping Darfur, I don't see you doing anything to help anyone. At least they are trying to do something that is going to make difference in our world. Even if it only saves a few lives, thats a few lives that could of been lost.

Hey AOL Betty...how do YOU know that we are not already helping the folks in our OWN backyard?

Keep the money AT HOME.

PS...Take some of the money you are wasting for AOL service and use it toward a LOCAL charity.

A better idea is to send your 400,000 pennies to the White House to help pay for a really tall electric fence to secure our borders.
