I am tired of people using children to make money. How many people have tried to help their own from abroad and have been swindled and given up. So, its better 4 madonna to cough her money and have them enjoy it without lifting a fingure? And the father’s appearance later was a joke. So madona was to support him aswell and his future wife and kids because she chose to support mercy? This is the problem with charity.
‘Finger’ i meant.
Anyway, i’ll be watching it. It’s good to have it created and good theme.
