That is great but I really hope people start to think how to help Africans to support them self instead of giving them charity!

This will be soon moved to free your mind

I sure hope they do not go back on their word and amount pledged. That is surely inspiring and must have had Bono jumping up and down.

I do hope this bill gets funded. I try not to get too hopeful when I see a historic measure like this until the check gets cashed.

I also agree about the charity, vs commerce thing. Of cousre, it's hard to think about commerce sometimes when you have no food to eat or clean water to drink. For some, unfortunately, it's all about survival until they can reach the next level.
