Has he not actively done things in the past for charity? Are we really going to stoop so low as to criticise anyone that's trying to raise money for a charity that will unfortunately effect most of us, is this how low some people's dislike for someone has become, remove those hate filled gasses just for one day.
It's not a case of disliking him or even hating him for that matter, as I certainly don't, yes I find him a needy, little twit but in no way hate him.
It's the fact he's made this pledge to CR & to date I see very little chance of him coming good but again I hope he proves me wrong.

That's my whole point no, but yet ppl like to take the pee out of someone showing an emotion.

My parents never once told me they loved me but I knew without a shadow of doubt they did.

It was aimed at Betty, he has made the pledge, so now lets see if he pulls it off before pulling him apart, that is all i am saying.

Prob some don't. I agree a parent doesn't have to say it but nice when they do and not a thing wrong in it.

To be honest I never gave it much thought, my parents were old school & weren't people to show their feelings but as I said I never doubted their love for me.

It would be interesting to know whether they have many/any professional fundraisers as part of the team, Lexi. If they're aiming to raise millions every year it seems a good investment. Hopefully it's retrievable because he should get media attention as long as they arrange something attention grabbing which involves him personally.
For CR's sake, I hope they have. Thing is, PA & co have a ready-made bank of supporters in CR's database - which is huge - and which I assume will be put at their disposal for any event, so they're ahead already in theory, but they must come up with a clearly defined plan of action in order to energise the appeal and get people on board. It doesn't matter how far ahead a proposed event is (even if its something like eg. getting a team together for next's yr's Marathon), just get it out there so there's some substance behind the appeal. And then build on it.

Talking about the Foundation's remit is fine as long as it's accompanied fairly swiftly by a plan of action about what the Foundation is actually planning on doing to raise that money.

Most kids know they're loved without the parents being thought of as special for doing do. It's the default setting as a parent

I'm sure all celebs love their kids but don't need to use that as their USP or expect to be rewarded for doing so. Anyway,. actions speak far louder than words ever can

So now its wrong for him to be vocal about loving his kids. I tell my daughter too, nothing wrong in it whatsoever.

Would PA have been more enthusiastic about CR if the amount of dosh donated to his fan site had met what he considers a decent level of adoration for him
