The money raised will enable us to help more families be together when they really need to be, by providing dedicated accommodation close to the hospital. This is a vital resource, enabling parents and carers to be at their child’s bedside within minutes, at whatever time of the day and night. We couldn’t be happier to be involved in this campaign and hope everyone enjoys the advertisement and supports this special partnership.” The 2016 John Lewis Christmas advert includes support for The Wildlife Trusts The advert tells the story of Dave, a hard-working and devoted dad, who comes up with an ingenious plan to make sure he can be with his family for Christmas. It is told through a song, ‘The Greatest Gift For Christmas Is Me’, voiced by British actor James Corden.How does the ad campaign raise funds for GOSH?The advert itself of course does not raise funds and there is no call to give to the charity within it. It is the related products for the ad that will generate income for the charity. All profits from the sale of the specially created Gingerbread ‘Dave’ (£1) and The Greatest Gift film animation kit (£5) will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.From 21st November, customers will also have the option to make a 20p donation at the till, or more if specifically requested, with all the proceeds going to the charity.This is the first time full colour 3D printed faces have ever been used in animation production in the UK.Sarah Kilmartin, Head of Broadcast Comms, Sainsbury’s, said:“Christmas is for Sharing has been a constant theme for our Christmas ads for the last three years and it continues to have real resonance for our customers… Supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity felt like a very natural extension of this as we know that the families at the hospital face more difficulties than most to spend time together as a family, at Christmas and all year round.” Advertisement  267 total views,  1 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Pornography restrictions dropped after concerns raised by Labour and Greens, minister ‘extremely disappointed’

first_imgNZ Herald 23 June 2020Family First Comment: “The minister’s work was partly influenced by five bills proposed by conservative lobby group Family First. The organisation’s national director Bob McCoskrie said he was “gutted” Martin’s work could not proceed. “We think the protection of young people from the proliferation of porn and the nastiness of porn available now is far greater than the so-called protection of the industry or not wanting to ruffle feathers. Parents are crying out for help. These proposals weren’t banning pornography, they were a middle ground, an opt-in rather than an opt-out. It was a pretty reasonable approach.””Internal Affairs Minister Tracey Martin says she is “extremely disappointed” in her coalition partners for blocking her plans to restrict access to online pornography.The New Zealand First MP said she failed to get agreement from the Labour and Green parties to advance a proposal which would have introduced pornography filters on home internet connections.She accused Labour of not supporting the proposal because it was concerned about being portrayed as “nanny state” in election year.Labour said it was not completely against the idea, but that it needed more work.Martin, who is also Children’s Minister, drafted a Cabinet paper with measures to prevent children and young people from viewing pornography online.It would have required internet service providers (ISPs) to install porn-blocking software with all new internet connections, forcing subscribers to “opt out” of the blocking software rather than actively “opting in” to it.She wanted legislation to be introduced to Parliament this term.“It’s not going anywhere,” she told the Herald. “I couldn’t get cross-party support.”READ MORE: up with family issues in NZ.

No. 3 USC gearing up to host No. 1 UCLA

first_imgWith its NCAA playoff position hanging in the balance in the season’s closing stages, the No. 3 USC men’s water polo team will try to topple No. 1 UCLA in the rubber match between crosstown rivals this Sunday.T-Rex · Senior driver Rex Butler and the Trojans will face UCLA for the third time this season on Sunday. Butler has 32 goals so far in 2014. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanThe Trojans (18-3) and the Bruins (21-2) each hold one win over the other in the 2014 season series. The two sides’ first meeting on Sept. 21 ended with the Bruins handing the Trojans their first loss of the year 9-7 to eliminate USC from the Kap7 NorCal Classic. Their most recent meeting on Oct. 12 ended with the Trojans knocking off the Bruins 10-6 in Westwood on the way to winning the SoCal Tournament championship. Sunday’s battle for Los Angeles supremacy will take place at Troy, and while the two sides will not be fighting for a tournament title, their third meeting of the season could have significant implications on the NCAA championship tournament.“This [game is] a little more important because we are tied one and one, and the team that wins this game will have an advantage in terms of head to head records when it comes down to selecting teams to the NCAA tournament,” Trojan head coach Jovan Vavic said. “We still have four very difficult games left in the conference, and other teams do too. So there’s still a lot of water polo left to play, and one loss here and there can really make a difference.”Sophomore driver Nick Bell reiterated the weight of Sunday’s matchup within the conference containing the “Big Four” teams of NCAA men’s water polo.“It’s definitely a very important game,” Bell said. “Three teams are going to go to the NCAA tournament in our conference, and right now we have the top four [in the nation]. The team who wins our conference goes to the NCAA tournament for sure. The next teams might end up tied at the end of the season, and it could go to the heads of the conference to decide who goes, so this game would be a big win for us.”The Trojans bounced back from a down-to-the wire 11-10 loss to Stanford with emphatic wins over Loyola Marymount and Pacific last week, defeating the Lions and Tigers 19-7 and 11-6 respectively. Having been knocked down from the top spot in the rankings with the Stanford loss, the Trojans will look to resurge as they did in their SoCal tournament victory, which Vavic says was fueled by the team’s loss to the Bruins at the beginning of the season.“You get more focused [after losing],” Vavic said. “When you win games, you get a tendency to relax and think you are too good. And when you lose, you look at your preparation with a more critical eye, and try to figure out how to do better.”Defense can’t be stressed enough around the Trojan camp as the team aims to take down the top-ranked Bruins. USC will want to curb the efforts of Bruin utility Cristiano Mirarchi, who leads UCLA in scoring with 37 goals on the year, and center Gordon Marshall, who’s tallied nine goals through the Bruins’ last three games.“The last time we played UCLA, we did a really good job on defense, so our coach is going to go back to what we did right, and we’re going to try to repeat that,” senior driver Kostas Genidounias said.The battle for Southern California water polo is set to take place 7 p.m. PT Sunday at Uytengsu Aquatic Center.last_img read more
