Im surprised there is not a thread about this already. what is all this thing about peoples profile pictures being a cartoon? Apparently its for prevention of child abuse but i cant see how that is helping?

 

Can anyone clear this up for me?

 

 

(Also what cartoon did you choose?) :D

In fairness I don't think it's meant to, it's merely to raise awareness for child abuse.

It's stupid.  Why don't they all just donate to the NSPCC?

I don't get how changing your picture to a cartoon is going to stop child abuse.

As it raises awareness of the issue. By the virtue that you are talking about child abuse now, it has raised the profile of the issue.
