Norwegian Boy Freezing - SOS Children


A social experiment was done recently in Norway. Hidden cameras were set up to cover it and the results show something in the human spirit, no matter whether in the US or abroad, that gives hope that we as people really care.

An 11-year-old boy sat shivering, freezing, and jacket-less at a bus stop in Oslo on a cold winter's day. Others saw him, alone and chilled to the bone. Watch and see how they reacted. How would you have handled this? What would you do?

HUFFPO:

The experiment was filmed by the Norwegian branch of the SOS Children's Villages International charity as part of a campaign to provide warm clothing for displaced children in Syria, according to The Nordic Page.

"People [everywhere] should care as much about children in Syria as they care about this boy," Synne Rønning, the information head of SOS Children's Villages Norway, told The Local. She also noted that the child was a volunteer who was never in any danger during the filming.

Doesn't this video show us that we do care? Now how about those hundreds of thousands of displaced children in Syria? Want to help? Here's how:

Over 2,000 people dressed as Santa Claus raced through Belgrade, Serbia, today to raise money for children who suffer from epidermolysis bullosa, a rare skin disease. The first 1,000 runners received full costumes, all others got a hat and a few days' extension on Christmas spirit.
