Actually, I like kicking African children with AIDS...
This whole (Red) business annoys me. Whilst I don't doubt the sincerity of the individual people involved, I'm leary of the way charity these days has become swallowed up by business, "Buy £100 of Gap products and we'll give 3p to buy African children AIDS medicine!", "LGBT Mardi Gras bought to you by Stagecoach!" and so on. It's fucking Bono working to get scraps from the masters table in between arguments about hats rather than Bono putting his time and effort into changing the world so African AIDS children get the drugs they need BECAUSE IT'S THE RIGHT FUCKING THING TO DO. Anyway, if you'd rather treat your charity as a fashion add-on, Blog(Red).
