The UNICEF Moment

By alansnap  
From the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony again.

This was the point in the evening when we were asked to donate to UNICEF by text - a world first. Once we'd texted (5) we were asked to switch on the torches in our phones. All the pinpoints of light are phone torches. Last I heard the donations totalled more than 3.1m including the TV audience. Well done Glasgow and the UK. More is to come from overseas.

To donate 5, text FIRST to 70333 in the UK
