So...

Past efforts include this: Image

And others I have no photos of on Facebook :(

This year my sister wants me to go a bit further. Hair will be done, and nails, and make up, and... a dress. ANYONE who wants to join me [girls, just go mad, a dress is less adventurous for you!] and can get to Bangor [North Wales] on November 16th, let me know.

We already have a photographer, but the more cameras, the better! Or worse, once our friends start mocking them :P

I'm already excited!

My support for the cause is to ban you if we don't see photographic evidence of you in a dress, Tufty.

As posted in the members' pics thread, but I thought it deserved to go here as well: my new, purple beard ready for next Friday!

So, tufty said it was ok to make this thread a general children in need thread.

A friend of mine is a teacher at Tadcaster Grammer and with some colleagues and pupils put this together:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReE627V1ggQ

by last weekend they'd raised over £4,000 and since then have been on a couple of local radio stations, had an article in the Sun, were on the local BBC news last night and are due on the national BBC news on Friday (I think).

So I thought I'd share it with you all in the hope that some of you might donate and encourage more of you to share anything you're doing for children in need as well.

£4000?? I'm impressed!

I was in the costume shop in town earlier and the bloke behind the counter was telling me how a friend of his climbed Snowdon a couple of years ago with an autistic kid he worked with, who for every 2 steps he went forward, he had to make one backwards. After 9 hours they made it to the summit.

I really wish I knew how much money they raised, but I bet it was pretty impressive!

What I was impressed with is that it's been up on YouTube for a week and had 110,000 hits but the town where the school is only has a population of 7,000! It's the power of word of mouth.

Right. Snowdon:

There are photos in there, and I will add more on here once the girls upload their photos as well.

Those of you who have me on Facebook will have access to the whole album now - either on my personal account or my work one: https://www.facebook.com/tufty.fofa

Love the picture Tufty!

Children in Need is such a good cause, my work was one of the sites taking donation calls. I did it for a couple of hours and was amazed by the generosity of everyone who phoned up to donate. It's definitely restored my faith in humanity somewhat.

Just a quick moan about money grabbing record companies.....
as i posted earlier, the teacher who made the tad gram style video has made over £5,000 for children in need, with no money taken by either himself or the school - in other words every penny donated as a result has gone direct yo charity. He aproached the record company with the hope of releasing it as a download single to raise even more, but their reply has been 'that breaches copyright, you can't release it and must take it down from youtube.' so much for trying to help a good cause.

Is there nothing he can do about that? If nothing else, it's for charity and I imagine he could get a lot of bad press for the record company if he went to the press about it. Not necessarily the best way to do business, but undoubtedly effective.

Besides, won't somebody PLEASE think of the children??

Edit: I don't even care this came from the wrong account for once.

He's told the local news (look at the video) but the only reason universal are aware of the songs exustsnce is he sent it to them and they thought 'hmmmm, that sounds a lot like our song, we can't let him donate proceeds to charity when we should get the money ourselves for finding the song in Korea and marketing ut over in Europe.' or something similar to that. It just makes shows like south park, who make fun of money grabbing record labels, look more like documentaries!

Well I'd say that Universal are breaking the law (technically).

I'd say that the video was a parody of the original song. And although Parody isn't usually covered by copyright legislation...(you need the copyright owners permission)... there are some fair use exceptions which I think this video falls under.

The main one would be:

Parodies of works protected by copyright require the consent or permission of the copyright owner, unless they fall under existing fair use/fair dealing exceptions:
- the part of the underlying work is not "substantial"
- the use of the underlying work falls within the fair dealing exception for "criticism, review and news reporting"
- enforcement of copyright is contrary to the public interest.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parody#United_Kingdom

I'd certainly make a strong case that this being a video to raise money for charity that enforcing copyright is contrary to the public interest...

:D :D :D

Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls, 2013 is my most ambitious charity bid yet. Not only am I aiming to break the £250 barrier, the true extent of my charity bid won't be revealed until the target of £750 is made. Suffice for now to say that anyone who saw my Snowdon 2012 photos has seen nothing like what I've got planned.

A JustGiving link has been added to my sig. Every £100 raised gets a bit more information on the fundraiser into the public domain. Make me proud, PF1!!
