I hate this commercial. A woman is doing errands around town, when she starts seeing moms and babies from third-world countries. Then a voiceover lady announces that you can save the world's babies by buying Pampers diapers because one pack = one life-saving vaccine.

Okay,
1. I don't like the message that this ad is sending- that you are responsible as mother for the world's babies. I think your number one priority should be to care for your OWN child before you even consider worrying about those thousands of miles away.
2. It's very sad and all that the babies in Africa and India and everywhere need things like this and can't get them. But we have children right here in our own country who need us- what about kids who have alcoholic parents who can't take care of themselves let alone a kid? It seems to me that the parents in third-world countries at least try, which is more than we can say for some of the parents in this country.
3. If you have the means to make the donations already, why don't you just DO it?? Don't rely on the consumers, just make a damn donation!! Oh, that's right. You have to make money off of this too. Silly me.

I just don't like what sounds to be Salma Hayek's voice over. Bleh...

It is Salma Hayek.  She was on Oprah, maybe a month ago, talking about it.
 
I don't have trouble with the campaign.  What they're doing is providing vaccines (that are inexpensive) to children in third world countries, where no one is funding these vaccines and children are dying from easily preventable diseases.
 
While life sure does suck for many children born in the U.S., it's just not the same.
 
Although - yes - we do need to take care of our own needy children, as well.

The ad promoting vaccines and awareness for children in other countries doesn't bother me.   But, when she says "with one paka pahmpers"  it's like nails on the chalkboard to me.

I thought it was Penlope Cruz's voice but then again I always get those two mixed up.  Now I know it's Salma...I wonder if she leant her voice for free??  Wink

I just don't get why, at FreeRice.com, I have to feel like a moron in order to donate to hungry nations. Why can't they just give them the rice, if they have it? Now I feel like an idiot for not knowing what "paladin" means, and I feel bad because I only donated 100 grains of rice, which is like nothing.
I know they want to make people WANT to give, but as long as they have the stuff, why don't they just hand it over already?

They need to promote awareness, so people will continue to give, and they won't run out of funds.
