So, I jumped on the bandwagon to change my Facebook profile pic to a cartoon character from my childhood.
Usually I don’t jump on the bandwagons. I definitely didn’t with the purse/bra things. I’m not sure why I decided this would be good. I suppose I enjoyed seeing everyone’s childhood cartoons as their profile pics, and I thought ‘I’m not going to be violent against children anytime soon, so, yep, I can do that’.
However, questions have been raised on how changing ones profile pic will do anything to combat violence against children (two examples below).
For the record, I’m against violence against anyone, not just children. Let’s leave violence in movies, where it belongs. (Hmmm, violence in movies… brilliant).
So, to show that I walk the walk, I’ve donated money to the NZ Green Party, in support of their work for Children’s Welfare. For more on what they do, please see their website.
If you want to show that you walk the walk, I suggest action against child abuse – support of people working in the field is one way of doing it. Find an organisation that you support who are doing things in that field, and send them some cash. Every organisation needs fiscal support.
