Today the TV‘s been on in the house for a few hours – a distraction in the corner while I try to reduce the pile of ironing that’s been lying in the back room for a wee while!

I feel so depressed every time there’s an advert break as during every advert break I’ve seen there been advert for at least one of the following:

All show some shocking images of children and animals who’ve been abused or neglected. All designed to pull at our heart strings and persuade us to donate to their cause.

All I will say is, yes, they all pull at my heartstrings, but there’s no way I can afford to donate to all of these causes, but they do have an uncanny way of making me feel guilty for not donating!

Am I alone in this feeling of guilt?

I suppose the fact that the adverts make me feel guilty, shows the advert makers have done a great job in getting their message over – mind you it doesn’t make it any easier to watch these adverts time after time.

All we can do is donate what we can to the causes we think are most deserving or most in need of our help – Let’s all try and make a small difference.
