"Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy".
I know W.O.S.P. My ex loved this. When asked what it was, she gave me an explanation of about half an hour and when she was done, I asked her: "so it's charity?" She said yes.
And dont be a prick.
Like said, this was just a little stinge to provoke a discussion about the subject as I think this is an important item in any society.
50s when Poland was p*ss poor and still mountains of stuff went to Hungary, we didnt have it ourselves but found it for others.
Hm, truckloads of food and clothing went to PL in those decaded, coming from Catholic NL in order to help the poor Polish Catholics.
On the other hand 2005 tsunami didnt gather that much
Hm, that should change though. If they can find the funds to help their fellow Eastern Europeans, they should be able to find dough for ppl in need in other parts of the world.
M-G (and sth else, but I forgot)
