Bad news dominates the media to the extent that we almost become
immune to it. So some good news is refreshing, and Chris Bateman, SAMJ
news editor, relates how Carte Blanche, the hard-hitting M-Net
television investigative programme, embarked on a R20 million
fund-raising blitz for children's hospitals to mark their own 20th
anniversary. (6) The huge success of the Red Cross Children's
Hospital Trust in obtaining public support to serve the children of this
country also serves as an inspiration to others.
