A guy in my grade is organizing a schoolwide service project. We're all supposed to donate money and he'll send it to contacts of his in Thailand, who work at a school that was damaged by the tsunami a couple years ago. The idea is, and I'm very serious, that our money goes to buying snacks for some orphans who don't get any allowance.
It's not that they're hungry. Oh, no. They get curry and rice, three meals a day. It's just that they have to watch as the kids who still have their parents buy treats for themselves, while the poor orphans are stuck with their plates full of the same old food.
Is it insensitive of me to find the initiative laughable?
