Those adverts are meant to be shocking sweets....

I must admit I have to turn it over myself.

I cant watch it either xx

Banardos have always had shocking adverts, the guy himself used to dress the kids up in rags and photo them for adverts.

It worked well and raised lots of money!

i think it hits home!

And if it stops one child from getting into the "cycle" then it has worked!

Got to agree with you on this one. I personally know a family who've got a son and they constantly call him a useless good for nothing and he'll never make anything of himself. He spends most of his time at my house, just to get away from them. I really hope in years to come he proves them wrong.

I find the NSPCC ones more disturbing

this one isnt shocking enough

It does it's job, and draws attention to the real problem which dosn't affect the majority of us.

I know its alwful

But how do you feel about the cost of running some adverts using donations and the 6 figure salaries some of the big charities directors get??

I seriously hate that argument. It's probably the stupidest way in the world of justifying something stupid. If it stops just one child, then it's a waste of millions of pounds that could've been spent on so many more effective and useful things. Since Barnados has limited funds, they have to spend it wisely, and a crap advert where no-one's really usre of what it's about is just a total waste.

I have to press mute. I find it really disturbing on my ears.:x

They should not try and raise money by spending this way. IMO.

said advert is good at what it was designed for

This sentence did not answer my question, but thanks.

Nice title it really got my attention.... but now im lost and have nothing to do

What I find most disturbing is the fact that money that was donated to this charity paid the wages of a worker that sexually abused children in one of the Barnardo's care homes.And the NSPCC also took children from unmarried mothers and fostered/adopted them to real sickos that abused them.

Can't believe what people do on youtube..
