This got scorching hot last year.Think its a wonderful gesture from NOTW!

What a wonderful gesture from the News of the World.

This xmas the News of the World have joined up with supermarket giant Tesco to give AT LEAST £25 worth of presents for EVERY CHILD who has a parent on the front line
WHAT TO DO:
All army,Navy and RAF families will recieve an email from the MOD to let them know how to claim.Follow the instructions in your email to make sure you get the correct gifts for child ages.Then bring a copy of the email when collecting your sack




It's as simple as that! The presents will then be dropped off at military bases around the country

It's ok, ignore the daft question. I've read it now, fantastic gesture and well deserved for those who's mummy or daddy will be away.
Christmas is hard enough without half your family not being there

Yes, well done Mr Murdoch although I'm sure the free publicity will be worth far more .

I realised that would be the case after I posted, it's the usual 'must engage brain b4 opening mouth' day today.

It's a fantastic thing to do regardless of the political and propaganda shenanigans behind it. I'm sure the kids and parents benefiting won't care how good Mr Murdoch and Mr T look

I wont benefit however its good deal.

I think they're offering the chance for a holiday in lapland for one family who have lost someone, personally I think they should take ALL families who've lost a parent.

Nice gesture but am I missing something??? Surely a £25 present wont compensate for a parent being away from home at christmas. Im sure that they have plenty of loving family members who can make their day special. Would it not be better to give a gift to children for one reason or another gets nothing at all for christmas.

As much as I hate The News of the World, you cant deny that this is a very good thing. Hot.

Voted HOT for the gesture.

The scheme is a great gesture. This thread isn't, it's a shameless exploitation of peoples feelings about our military for heat.

Not a deal. Belongs in freebies if anywhere.
#21
I guess most people fail to see the political motive on such reward by the Murdoch empire.

It'd be a greater gesture if the News of the World took their name off the offer.

I'm a web developer, do I get £25 worth of free toys?

Why should the forces get this? They opted to sign up for it. It's a job exactly like mine.

should give to the children without parents or family instead much more worthy cause

You could submit every charity in the country as a "hot" deal if this one fits the criteria. The difference is charities don't have cynical hidden objectives.

Moved to Freebies meantime.

It's to a select group, so I'll take a check on this tomorrow to determine the correct Forum.

The reason i put it in deals is because it deserves some recognition.Posts in freebies etc rarely get a look in.Think this is slightly unfair as ive seen other freebies in deals ie ebay free listing etc...

Thankyou for looking into this. x

As above, moved meantime. Simply placing in Deals to gain greater exposure is not justified in my view, however I've requested this thread to be reviewed. Can you imagine how unorganised the Deals forum would be if other members took the same approach ?

Your reference to other freebies in deals does not stand with reference to ebay. There is usually an associated cost involved, e.g. further fees dependent upon listing type and final sale fees.

Thanks for posting the Freebie though, although I would assume that all members entitled to such a gift will receive direct notification. This thread will serve as a reminder to those who may have missed their email.

just how many of you does this actual effect? it effects me, i have a 9month old son,im ex forces and my partner is going to be away for christmas.he's missed so much of our son growing up,and yes,he knrew what he was signing up for but it doesnt mean he's not going to be upset at missing his childs first xmas. a web designer or what ever other jobs you have are not the same, you arent saying good bye every night not knowing if it'l be the last time!
I feel this is a great scheme for all those it applies to. yes there are children without anything, but there are charaties that help them also, so why pick on this one!
sorry rant over but as you may tell its a subject close to my heart

thanks OP for posting this :)

Agreed, and what about people living in poverty? surely they should be getting this not the army.
Being in the army is a choice! being in poverty is not!

This is a disgraceful publicity stunt!

Daddy or chips? Daddy or £25?

I must admit the first thing I thought was "why children of people who earn money and not those who don't?"

Nice gesture, I think some people are looking too much into it. You can't win, would you rather it was nothing at all?

This! Surely they can afford £25 worth of presents with the wage they're on and it's not exactly as though they're made to go into the forces, it's their own choice. These toys should go to childrens charities.
