It's not very often that I see things in black and white. I'm much more of a colour sort of person. Meaning that I'm not opinionated, or political, and I do tend to see both sides of every story.
Joining in with this #SaveSyriasChildren campaign however, was very black and white to me. No reason not to. Anything we CAN do to help, WILL help.
The headline figure is that more than 15 million people are in need of assistance inside and outside Syria.
Nobody could fail to be moved by THAT photo though. This is where I see social media changing lives for the better. Visually impactful, the photo sticks in the mind.
We all know that any life drowned is one too many, but of course it hits home more when it's a child. A child who could do nothing to save themselves.
We can do something about it. There are hundreds of charities and small groups now collecting; money, warm clothes, blankets, toiletries, anything.
Donate if you can, raise awareness if you can, both if you can. Whatever; just don't turn a blind eye and forget about it. We are all human. We all deserve to be on this planet and to be treated right, regardless of where we were born.
