    am i the only one, but some of their pictures isnt appropriate for the cause. they need to take this seriously, its not a fashion show. only ASA and omotola’s pictures sends a true message of the cause.

      Absolutely, what is worth doing is worth doing well. it wouldn’t have cost them anything to do a quick photoshoot or better still spend a little bit more time selecting more appropriate pictures (sigh!!!)

    This is for the organizers – Great initiative, i was going to make a donation but the least amount is $25, for your target and goal which is African youths, i would advise you reconsider the least amount, i went to the Ebola fund by google instead and made my donations there since theirs starts at $5 and i could afford $10 plus Google give an additional $1 for every $1 you donate.

    It is interesting to see how these celebs turn up for a STOP EBOLA campaign and completely shun INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS…Please look into this.
