    SO much fail in this thread. It's to raise awareness.

    Why should it have to be official? The charity is grateful for our efforts too.

    I think it's a nice idea to be honest. Most people who've been online today (out of my friends) have all changed their profile picture. Plus it does raise awareness, makes you think hey we've had it good, maybe we should make it good for others. Infact I went onto the NSPCC and donated a pound (as I only have £4 in my account atm).






    When I was little, I absolutely adored dexter's lab, especially where his hair is on fire and he ran around going "my hair is on fire", which is funny because he's ginger. And I also wanted to be dee dee, because I liked her dress and the way she spoke.

    I only changed my picture in conjunction with a small donation. If I'd simply changed my picture I'd have felt as though I was doing nothing to help to be honest...

    It's still raising awareness and shows that someone cares ?
    Gosh, how caring for you to go out of your way by clicking a few buttons and changing your profile picture.

    What utter self-serving tosh.

    Change your Facebook profile picture to a character from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same, for the NSPCC. Until Monday (December 6), there should be no human faces on Facebook, but an invasion of memories. This is a campaign to stop violence against children.

    You probably have come across the above message now with everyone posting it as their status.

    This campaign is getting pretty big now on facebook, with everyone changing their profile pics to pics of their favourite characters, anybody else taking part ?

    I changed mine for this campaign to a pic of Simba from lion king

    What about you ?

    I think it's a good idea. No it doesn't change much but it raises awareness of the charity. I haven't heard anything about the NSPCC recently but it has put it into people's minds again, so it has to be a good thing...

    Is that middle-class-speak for 'look charitable and caring whilst actually having to contribute neither time nor money'?

    no?

    such a bad generalisation...

    It's called a campaign for a reason, and you need some sort of advertisement to raise awareness. THEN as more people know about it/ hear about it... more can be done to help whatever the cause is. Be that through volunteering, donations etc.

    Just because you don't want to take part, doesn't make it pointless...

    if you have been so beautifully aware that people hit their kids, have you been remembering to donate money?
    when was the last time you did donate money?
    When was the last time 95% of people posting these pictures donated money? LOL.

    And no, I haven't been "remembering" to donate because I do not donate to the NSPCC. Some kids trying to make themselves feel good about themselves isn't going to make me suddenly "remember" to do it.

    I'm sorry, I'm obviously ruining the whole point of it for you (feeling good about yourself) but the fact is that it's a crock of ****.

    I'm Woodstock from Snoopy. I think it is important - raising awareness does do good and correlate to more donations, honestly.
