Children Born In Innocense

There is a song that I love - 7 seconds, sang by  Youssou n'Dour & Neneh Cherry

The words are so beautiful and true that it brings tears to my eyes

Every child that is born into this world is beautiful and pure

They have no concept of race, religion, jealousy, hate, envy, prejudice

Born with an open slate

It is us, the adults, that corrupt that innocence 

Negative influences surround us every day

As parents we have to show our children the way

We can not keep living in a world that is intolerant and full of hate

We must teach our children to be open-minded, to think for themselves

We at DeCouto have a saying - Positive Minds = Positive Choices

For our world to evolve

For our people to survive we must change

The future of our world depends on it

The Thumb Buddies were created for kids of all ages

They are educational and entertaining with a real emphasis on values and respect

Their mission is simple

To impart positive messages to kids and the community at large

Bring people closer to one another through understanding

Demonstrate that all things are possible when the mind is open

Through our children there is a chance for a new society

A strong, tolerant beautiful world can be ours

The Thumb Buddies would like to be part of the solution

Beautiful words of inspiration sang by Bob Marley - One Love, One heart - Let's get together and feel all right." I'm pleading to mankind - Give thanks and praise to the Lord

Days Of Family Unity

Remember the days when you were a child
Days filled with school and playing with friends
Families would spend time together
There was no computers, no mobile phones, not even television
Yet we were happy and content

Sadly these days children are hooked on activities that take away from family interactions
The computer and mobile phone is a daily activity for most children and adults alike
The fabric of society is breaking down
Children are at risk from predators that wish them harm
The internet host a variety of sites that target our children
Exploiting them and preying on their innocence
We have to stop these monsters

We at DeCouto want to help to bridge the gap
We want to see families spend more time together
This is why we created the Thumb Buddies
We know there is no short term solution to many of life's struggles
We just want to be part of the solution, part of bringing families together

We think one way is through laughter and good old fashioned values
The Thumb Buddies encompass  everything that is good and wholesome

Through these little beings we hope to reach kids
To help to protect them through play
We are hoping that you  can help us to spread the word
