As mentioned she worked her way out of Calcutta, you want to cut the bleeding heart crap and show kid pictures illustrating work ethics. The whole Live Aid phenomena was based around the principles of teaching a person to fish rather than giving them some food, so showing tearful children as a method of identifying is a backwards step. Currently the message being sent by pictures like those is "I identify with that child and the terrible conditions they live in, so I shall work for a living to give them money" which is wrong on any level.
