    Problem is they are not Irish ..... also not 1 soul but probably 150,000 souls ...... even Heaven will be too packed now .... sigh.... ;-(
    even Singaporeans, we are talking about a possible 150!
    always the Light, .... always.

    Maybe they can turn this fireworks thing into a donation drive.
    Set a target and when we hit it, set off the fireworks!
    And maybe along the way, every $5000 will set off 1 firework.
    Every fireworks we manage to fire off will be a hope for them......

    Just a thought....

    it's really very sad... everyday brings news footage of grieving people crying their hearts out as they talk abt their loved ones who died...

    half of your idea is going to take place. they will turn the various new year parties into partial fund raisers. they will set up donation boxes and encourage people to donate.

    no fireworks though. i think fireworks are still alittle too representative of merry making... so better not to fire any off regardless of the justification...

    True, something more quiet will be great. Like switch on the lights in the Tallest building level by level with every 10K donation. Or the street lights, or candles...... lights always mean hopes for most people....

    that's a very good idea!

    and it'll make quite a dramatic image won't it? it'll be like a beacon to motivate people further away to donate as well when they see the lights get higher up the building.

    write in and suggestion dude. may not be in time for this year end, but may be chinese new year or something.
