Do you think this 46664 concert will be beneficial? I think it's going to help somewhat..but look at Live Aid...did things get really better after that? A lot of money has already been sent to Arica and where is it going to?I'll donate but....I just think the money should be spent more wisely on how to prevent the epidemic....but...I guess it will help...but I don't think it will really cause things to become a great deal better...these people have to be organized and educated...anyway...what do you people think?

Donating is a way to help. Volunteering to go there and help them with organization skills and our own sweat would be more efective, but... few have done so. As for where the money is going nowadays, I'm not pretty sure. Up to very few years ago, it was mainly going to Europe, as all of Africa was explored as european colonies.

Live Aid was broadcast live to billions.
This is being recorded to be shown at various times to various people.

At Live Aid, people were donating hundred of pounds, dollars each.
Now, people try and avoid the 99c for a download.

Therefore it will not have the same effect.
