Matt Damon – The Importance Of Giving!
Matt Damon pens an original article on the importance of giving in the latest issue of Parade.
The 39-year-old actor has visited places such as Africa, India, and Haiti to try to learn what conditions are like. He writes, “You can read about extreme poverty and possible solutions, but it’s really powerful when you get to meet the people and shake their hands and listen to their stories. I try to keep my trips short because my kids are so young that my wife, Lucy, can’t come. We don’t like to be separated, but we both feel it’s so important to learn about these things. There’s so much I don’t know. In the future, I know these trips are something we’ll do as a family.”
Go Trick-Or-Treating With Selena Gomez!
Selena Gomez is ready for Halloween to come.
The 17-year-old UNICEF ambassador is spreading the word about the organization’s Trick-Or-Treat campaign and doing her part to participate.
Sel shared in a statement, “Trick-Or-Treat for UNICEF invites children and adults alike to make Halloween count by joining UNICEF to do whatever it takes to help save children’s lives. This October, I would like to encourage everyone to make a difference and support UNICEF’s mission to reduce the number of daily preventable deaths of children, from 25,000 to zero.”
As part of the campaign and to get people involved, Selena will also be donating four VIP tickets to one of her upcoming concerts with backstage meet-and-greet access to the highest bidder through a Charity Buzz auction. Running through November 11, the highest bidder will also receive an autographed CD and all proceeds will benefit the Trick-Or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.
