Go to the home page, click Gifts & then Food gifts. Still some goodies to be had friends (highfive) Just got some more, yummy yum (y)
Oh no just superman and iron man & other fictional characters are heroes!! Imo the man who has one leg and ptsd and relives the moment his leg was blown off over and over, yet still puts his help for heroes collection tin around his neck and stands out in the freezing cold collecting money for an amazing cause because it's something he believes In, now that's my kind of hero. If soldiers and other forces workers, past and present were paid enough, not just money but respect, then help for heroes wouldn't need as many donations. So my post could have been freezing cold but in my eyes it would be boiling hot!
I think it would be fare to consider them as criminals at that point that tarnish the good work of the many.
Even the ones that indulged in war crimes?
Voted hot. Whoever made the above comment about soldiers not being heroes and the people who liked that comment need to pipe down and take a hard look at themselves I for one think soldiers are heroes every one of our soldiers play a huge part in this country. Past and present soldiers deserve total respect.
Bought one for hubby who's an ex squaddie
Bought, thanks for posting.
I hope the MOD chip in and buy some.
Thank you (highfive)
Thanks ordered some Xmas cards too
Thanks for asking. First i'd stop bombing innocents out of their homes in far off places in some nebulous idea of "freedom". Then i'd look at the paedophilic establishment that is ultimately the driving force behind the the military-industrial-pharmaceutical complex and seek to minimise their input into foreign affairs and democracy. Then I'd want to look at the whole social construct of nationhood and examine the sobering idea that I'm one of 7 billion + individuals floating around a star on a iron ball and try and work out a means for us to get on without destroying the very ecosystem that sustains us. I expect that will entail some form of socialism- libertarian for me please - as capitalism is burning up the planet. ISIS the good guys? Not in my book. Fascists, religious fascists but where do they get the huge amount of funding that is necessary to feed their vicious bloodlust? Saudi Arabia. The British governments very best of friend. There's a whole nasty circle of psychopathy going on and unless you're a billionaire your not welcome to their sick party.
So our army is state sponsored terrorism? So what do you suggest we have in it's place? I suppose ISIS are the good guys?
Some will question the whole idea of state sponsored terrorism which is one way of looking at armies and some would say if the state sends young working class lads and lasses to fight its battles it should bloody well fund their recovery from injury and stress and not rely on handouts from charities - which, has been mentioned, skim off a tidy little sum for the bosses.
Maybe some people disagree with the charity I'm not sure. One thing I personally don't agree with are some of the salaries paid by charities. Don't know how others compare but help for heroes have 17 of their staff earning between £60,000-£110,000 per annum, which I wouldn't call all that charitable
Why are people voting cold? At least leave a comment..
That'd be difficult, my Mum's dead.
Hopefully people say the same when your mothers wearing the clothing too. ;)
Some nice items, model's a babe as well. 8)
No sole, just realised. oh well it will stop me wearing them in the garden
11% quidco too.
I would never apply to that terrorist organisation. I've got plenty of qualifications- don't worry about me- I'm living good without murdering kids
Oh dear!!! I'm guessing your the type of bloke who sits on his **** playing COD till 0100-0200 in the morning. Come on be truthful you applied for the army & got told no thanks!!
Are they heroes??
What? It's 'Heroes'. Not 'Hero's'.
Not learnt from the other post?
What?? Afridi. You mentioned along with Dhoni, Brendon and Lara. lol
Big Players Afridi,Dhoni,Brendon,Lara
£5 off is not a great deal cold for me. vote hot of cold on the deal, not if u think its a good charity.
My son says I'm a hero too! :p
Hot from me
fantastic worthy charity...... hot from me...
That could be said the same about a £30 Ralph Lauren polo on offer from £40, yet it still would get roasting as the deal would be based on the previous price that the item was offered at and not comparing one brand of polo against some lesser quality item that you'd find in Primark or a Sports Direct brand (Lonsdale, everlast, slazenger, etc)
charity or no , it's not a good deal. if this was a charity forum I'd agree with you but it's not, it's a deal and bargain forum and a poloshirt for £12 is quite expensive.
Whilst this offering is about. On another grab for attention the H4H team had 12 road bikes stolen at the weekend from their campsite in Somerford Keynes in the Cotswolds. Full info is on their Facebook page. Keep yours eyes peeled people as these would be quality bikes that possibly only a certain audience would be interested in https://www.facebook.com/HelpforHeroesOfficial?fref=photo
Those voting cold should be ashamed.
My money is going to the collateral damage fund Dont join up. Dont be a pawn
Nope they could have reported " Passers-by were walking as the madman with his bloody hands and knives was shouting...."
Unfortunately they give their lives for politicians and greed of governments. Still doesn't make them heroes, just thoughtless promoters of war.
Using lepton as an insult, I approve :).
£3.95 for orders under £40
Is there a delivery charge? If so price should include that as that is what you have to pay the supplier
proceeds to help for heroes I should have added
Totally agree - we should be grateful and be happy to pay full price to help those who keep us safe!
Isn't it a shame help the heroes have a sale? Full price should be a minimum we pay to support this charity.
The Irish terrorist groups were more often than not simply racketeers wrapped up in a Tricolour or Union flag. As a young man on tour in West Belfast in 1987 with the Army I could identify with the Republican cause and only really saw myself as a potential target. Before I went over to Northern Ireland, I actually thought I might be going there to do something positive... It didn't take much more than a couple of days to see that wasn't going to be the case. We are all entitled to have our differences but it's not worth killing each other over it at the end of the day.
I think you need to look a bit further back into the history of the problems in Afganistan. You don't need to look too far back to the origins of the recent problem when the SAS etc were training the Mujahideen in Scotland to kill Russians. The CIA etc were funding and arming the very same chaps that (in my opinion) gave birth to Al Qaeda. My own feeling is that while looking for a short term solution to the "dastardly" Russians the West created yet another big money maker. Now "we" fight wars to put down terrorist threats that we (I'll be lenient and perhaps suggest "inadvertently") created with our own funds and expertise in the first place - you really couldn't make it up!
Yeah as we'll soon here from HUKDS resident nutters.
9/11 was an inside job. ;)
Not at all, the cowardly attacks on 9/11 prompted the Invasion of Afghanistan because it's ruling "government" harboured (at the time, I know where Bin Laden had Bin hiding) a wanted and known terrorist, they also allowed the training of terrorists in their country. Countless more attacks could of been carried out against the UK and it's allies had the Taliban not have been removed from power.
I fully agree with your comments, its the Hero thing that grates on me
If they were never called to go to war, then what a jolly the army would be, if i could have that option i would join up too!
Honestly I do feel for the soldiers, and there family and friends. Given it was the choice of OUR governments to go to war, we have only our own self's to blame. Or maybe think for your self of the reasons why this is all happening and the people / organisations who are really pulling the strings. They are pulling the wool over our eyes and most of the public won't realise till it's too late.
While I agree that 'Hero' has become too commonly used as a tag for soldiers in general, there is no denying there are acts of heroism being conducted on a routine basis. As to people having accidents every day, while i don't wish to detract from the horror of any accident; there is a difference between having an unpredicted accident in the work place and walking out the door to work knowing that anywhere you step may have an IED insitu or a bullet coming your way. If you can't see the difference, then that is your right. The media have overused the word 'hero' the same way they have, 'celebrity'. The unfortunate side affect is that acts of genuine heroism become trivialised, wether it's afghan or civvie street.
They are not 'Heros' There are just doing there job! Yes it is sad when someone loses a leg, arm or life, but people die and have accidents everyday, we dont call them heros. If you would like to donate, dont buy something that is half price and leads them to getting half the money, Just give what you can afford or give 'time' help and support. If like me you dont think they are Heros, why not help a neibour or do an hours work for free at a homeless shellter. I guess what im saying is do something for somebody, but give your all dont just do it because it has a half price tag on it
Exactly! Cameron wants to arm the rebels in libya so why not employ the same thing here!
This is a crazy mixed up world. So how long till Gaddafi declares the rioters to be the new legitimate UK government?
Its better than playing soldier for a pointless cause ! the worlds biggest terrorists are white men wearing suits and a so called wanabe black man across the atlantic and they are on our doorstep not thousands of miles away !!
You need help dude, seriously. For someone in their late twenties, its a shame really.
Alot of 40 year old men may need bibs after they get back from the invasion so its not such a bad idea.
At the bottom of the link page is a section that links through to 2 pages of Father's day suggestions...some are reduced items (that are not on the main link page) & some at full price. P&P is meant to vary according to weight - £3.95 on a hoodie
great charity, i try to order at least £10 worth of stuff every month from them.
Just ordered loads of little bits - great cause
I love help for heroes, but it made me giggle when the first thing was an apron and an oven glove, are they saying "Get back in the damn kitchen mother!!" ?!?!
Didn't see anything I liked, but used the link on the website to make a donation. http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/donations.html
As someone with a vested interest in H4H (serving), can I just encourage you all to make your Mothers a lovely present from their site. It's a fantastic charity that has already made a massive difference to the lives of those injured on operations, and it needs to carry on doing so into the future, given the swingeing cuts that are ongoing. If you are considering any other Forces charities, can I recommend the Army Benevolent Fund or Combat Stress; the future mental health of young people currently on ops is likely to be a ticking time bomb. Thank you.
