You Deserve Much More Than This

June 4, 2009

I was glad to see Sean Penn take home an Oscar for Milk this past year.  He typically produces quality work, occasionally rocks a method actór goatee, and honestly seems invested in sincere social causes.  The following PSA video supporting the World Food Programme reinforces these affirmations (most notably the facial hair claim):

Vodpod videos no longer available.

It takes 25 cents to fill one of the “red cups” that the World Food Programme uses to give hungry children a regular school meal of porridge, rice, or beans. $15 feeds 10 children for a week.  If you feel inclined, follow Sean’s advice and support WFP’s school feeding programs, emergency relief operations, and development initiatives.

I wonder if Sean and Bruce hang out?  Watching effective public service announcements always makes me want to up the dosage on my own benevolence.  As Christina always likes to quote, “What do we live for if not to make the world less difficult for each other?”
