the facebook cartoon invasion

have you seen the collective change-my-profile-picture phenomenon happening in our most loved social network? no, this is not a case of people thinking the same thoughts at exactly the same time. it is simply their reply to a challenge.
the challenge:
Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood and
invite your friends to do the same. Until monday there should be no
human faces on facebook, but an invasion of memories. This is for
violence against children. 🙂
time and again, we would read or hear news on violence against children and it is quite alarming. we, of course would like to take part in totally erasing this or raising awareness on this cause. here’s what united nations has to say:
The United Nations Secretary-General’s Study on Violence against Children concludes that violence against children happens everywhere, in every country and society and across all social groups. Extreme violence against children may hit the headlines but children say that daily, repeated small acts of violence and abuse also hurt them. While some violence is unexpected and isolated, most violent acts against children are carried out by people they know and should be able to trust: parents, boyfriends or girlfriends, spouses and partners, schoolmates, teachers and employers. Violence against children includes physical violence, psychological violence such as insults and humiliation, discrimination, neglect and maltreatment. Although the consequences may vary according to the nature and severity of the violence inflicted, the short- and long-term repercussions for children are very often grave and damaging.
we ought to foster a safe and healthy environment for our children to grow up in. lofty goals i know but with a simple click of your mouse, you can help this cause reach to more people out there.
so waste no more time and google that favorite childhood cartoon character of yours.
