Salvation Army: Superman

Any old clothes will do.
You wouldn't be caught dead in them but, for a homeless person, they could mean the difference between life and death. Please donate your unwanted clothes to the homeless this winter.

I find these vaguely patronizing, and just slightly degrading.

I don't think you need to humiliate a subject to highlight it do you?

agree totally. especially this line is degrading:

"You wouldn't be caught dead in them but, for a homeless person..."
well, obviously it's OK for a homeless person to be found dead in.

benjaminbrown said it right. patronising stuff, exploits the abject misery of the less fortunate to wangle ad awards.
