I feel bad for these children who must suffer from the pains that are in these commercials, but...do they have to shove these commercials down our throats?
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

MrC? Don't hate.
It isn't you and it isn't Shriners Hospitals.
It's the effect of all the others on top of valid, close-to-home requests such as these where the beneficiaries are the innocent young within our arm's length to assist - where anyone can make a difference with anything.
This gets diluted when others see their causes as worthy of tear-jerking commercials and the broadcast channels take their money with indifference, when in fact, it would seem some sort of review process should be in place for what is reasonable and what isn't, such as the clubbing of baby seals in Canada. 
Those hurt to watch and they take your money...but there really isn't much they can do short of starting a war, where as Shriners makes positive change in many lives and there is a lot anyone can do with however much they can spare.

Is it a sin to hate Mike Strahan?



Is it a sin that I want to do Marlow Thomas?

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

LOL
Given Ms Thomas is 81, I'd say you're a wretched sinner for even thinking about taking advantage of the elderly.
And how does Michael Strahan figure in to this again, Sir?LOLWink

yeah that one threw me as well--the kid thats older now has become a good spokesperson, but the girl with shoulder hand-pretty face and all--made me reach for my wallet becuz NO amt. of money can fix that.

Hate em? A little..but thats not due to subject matter, its due to repetition and really cliched TIMING--not DURING Christmas but right after these ALL show up

I simply won't give to any of these so called charities because, one, I hate having my emotions manipulated into giving money. And two, most of these mega "charities" actually give so little to the cause. The ceo's and the higher ups make triple digit salaries, and millions go to making and airing the commercials.

If I give to any charity, it will be a local one where I know they do the most with the money.

And Marlo Thomas? God, I want to smack her smug arrogant face!!!! How many plastic surgeries you think she's had? And botox. At 81, I wonder what she would look like au natural. Probably not all that sexy!

Not a sin. But there is an odd sense of sight guilt hating the f out of these commercials, for me at least.

I feel this kid had more energy in the older ads - when he was younger. I think he lost a little pep in his step in these new ads. No pun intended...really, no pun.

(Ok, I'm going to hell for that)

Agree with the first part but in al fairness, St. Jude's gets a pretty high score as far as how it spends donations and its transparency.

I agree,Clint. St. Judes is 100 percent on the up and up regarding donations.

You all know this was started by marlos dad, Danny, right? He claimed if he ever made it big in Hollywood he would find a way to give back. Hence. St. Judes. Let's give the man a standing o

Absolutely!  And Marlo too, for her continuing in her Dad's footsteps and dedication to St. Judes.  Proves "That Girl" was not some fluffy bimbo.  Big smile

God Bless all those babies, little children and the bigger kids.

Definitely a worthy charity to be donating to.
