PRICE OF PUFF DADDY CD COULD BUY A WEEK IN A UGANDAN HOSPITAL

SEATTLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This Christmas, think about how much you’ve spent on gifts – then think about this: The price you paid for a Beanie Baby is enough money to pay for prenatal care for five pregnant women in Bangladesh.

That’s according to the World Concern charity organization, which says the money spent on gifts and leisure activities could easily save lives in the third world. For instance...

  • The price of three large lattes from Starbucks is enough to pay for a medical check-up for a Bolivian child.
  • A new Puff Daddy CD costs the same as a week of hospital care in Uganda.
  • The price of one of those “Sing & Snore Ernie” dolls could buy a month’s worth of food for a family of four in Somalia.
  • And, finally, the price of a movie rental and a pizza could buy two pigs for a family in Cambodia.
