    Was wondering, why didn't Roman, that stinking Chelsea chairman donate money to tsunami victims..i thought he has millions? Instead of proaching Rio, he should use those money for good deed..:rolleyes:

    well i don't really like Schumacher, but what he has done is... i'm just total respect for the guy! i know he's got even more money than that, but hey, what about those ultra-rich stars around the world?
    so Schumi gets a good point this time from me!;)

    am i the only one who thinks its kinda sad that it takes a tsunami for the developed world to give money? what about the hundreds of thousands of kids that die every month in Africa because of malnutrition? they dont get much.

    it's because of multimedia
    ppl give more money when they see disaster videos and photos, especially of smth "New" and rarely so they can think "it could be me"

    if there would be cameramans in Africa AND they would show it EVERYDAY in all newspapers and TV channels/news/Radio then ppl would give them cas$h too

    I know it's sad but Africa needs more marketing :(:(
