DSTV shows charity without the charity...

24 June 2014, 08:29
I saw a TV advert recently, it show's a teacher of sort reading to some kids. 
We gather that these kids are destitute, terminally ill and so on.
DSTV apparently donated R 200 000, hence why this advert was created. To let us all know what they did.
But the strangest thing is they took their time to display in this commercial that these kids are in desperate need.
They explain in the advert that they cannot completely help but make a meal out of their generosity.
Look, I have never managed to give a charity R 200 000 just yet, but what is R 200 000 really mean to DSTV?
I would have expected them to at least create some kind of lifetime help for these kid's. Like maybe R 200 000 each and every month. No, not DSTV, they give a once off payment and feel they deserve to create an advert to brag to us all showing how kind they are.
For every R 20 we may give a homeless man, Outweighs DSTV's apparent charity by I would guess something like 1 Billion to 1.
DSTV makes more money that most companies in SA, Absolutely zero competition and yet they want to brag about some once off tax write off?
I am truly disgusted at them , Why not give it and shut up instead of paying an advertising company and actors to create an advert that reveals an awareness about real tragic realities and all they doing is pretending to care.
They could have offered 1 Billion rand , then they can run adverts all day showing their charity.If they are so stingy, why not a 100 Million ? This could be paid over many years. They are making Billions I wonder if people realize?
Absolutely rotten company, I feel no magic, M- Net/ DSTV are one of many unfriendly South African companies.
A rotten yet profitable administration.
South African's deserves more competition when it comes to TV, 
I cannot stand them anymore ...

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
