    I don't think its specific to NSPCC. I have some American friend who changed their profile pics before any of my UK facebook friends.
    I thought it was from cartoon Network: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=108715275864151 ?
    I haven't changed my photo. The only one I could think is Pikachu and about 9 of my friends already have that anyway. One of the girls from my course had a go at me about it yesterday and I pointed out that my main christmas present for the last few years has been sponsoring an Indian child through Plan, my family does Water Aid, I work in Oxfam Books in the holidays and at home we have a change pot which goes towards Save the Children. She on the other hand admitted to doing absolutely nothing but felt it was important to "raise awareness".
    If you give money and change your picture, fine. If you change your picture and nothing else, what's the point?

    I bet the girl from your course soon shut up after you reeled off what you do for charity :five: I dont think the Cartoon network has anything to do with this, I just think the guy who created that used the logo on a play of words... social network moving to a cartoon network :dontknow: but there is no mention of it on their homepage so thats what I would assume is the case.
