Ben Stiller Promotes The See Jennifer Aniston Naked Foundation

Ben Stiller just wants to save the world. And so he is starting a charity in addition to the Derek Zoolander Fund For Kids Who Can’t Read Good. Some of the names he was considering—the Ben Cross and No Child Left Ben-Hind. But he wanted something that would really appeal to the people. So he chose The See Jennifer Aniston Naked Foundation. Jen’s reaction here is awesome. Though, in reality, Ben does actually have his own charity that supports building schools—the Stiller Foundation—and this video is meant to drum up some buzz for it.

The New ASPCA Commercial Is Emotional Cruelty To Humans

Last night, I was catching up on some television when this commercial came on the air. Now, I should note that I love the ASPCA, the charity and pet adoption organization that seeks to end cruelty to animals. The ASPCA is where I adopted my cat, Cleo, and it’s an organization that I regularly give money to. But I hold that this commercial is just too much. Apparently, Sarah McLachlan’s “Arms of the Angel” spot wasn’t emotionally charged enough. This new ad shows clips of forlorn looking animals as a sentence unfolds about them onscreen. “Tabitha, Locked up her whole life.” “Mink, Abused and living in fear.” “Nathaniel, Never loved and left to die.” And the worst, “Blondie, Abandoned and dying of a broken heart.”

Before I knew it, not 20 seconds into the ad, I was huffing and puffing, in tears, little rivers running down my cheeks. Keep reading »

Last 31 Days Of 2008: Donate To A Charity

Donating to a charity will make you feel good about yourself and will help your community, country or planet. And if you make that donation before 2008 ends, it will also help your financial situation because you’ll be able to write off the donation on your taxes in 2009. If you don’t have a favorite charity already, here are some suggestions:

  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides patient care for children afflicted with cancer and other catastrophic diseases and researches these diseases.
  • The World Wildlife Fund aims to protect natural areas and wild populations of plants and wildlife worldwide. But if you’d like to give locally, check out Animal Charities of America, which is a nonprofit federation that pre-screens high quality national charities working to protect animals.
  • The National Veterans Foundation brings awareness to the needs of America’s veterans. It also provides veterans and families in need with food, clothing, transportation, employment and other essential resources.
  • The Natural Resources Defense Council works to restore Earth’s air, land and water and defends endangered natural places.
  • If you can’t afford to make a monetary donation now, you can also make an in-kind donation or volunteer your time. Keep reading »

    The Daily Hotness: Graham Bunn

    Despite my avid coverage of The Bachelor a few months ago, I have not been blogging (or watching!) The Bachelorette. That’s because I tend to think The Bachelorette is boring and way cheesier than The Bachelor — the men are not nearly as big of train wrecks as the ladies and it makes me uncomfortable watching them act like cheeseballs. But I’ve been informed that I’ve missed out on at least one bright spot on The Bachelorette — Graham Bunn (nice name!), who went home on last night’s episode. He’s obviously way hot, but he’s more than just good looks. Our friend Kim says she thinks Graham mainly went on the show to bring awareness to his charity, The Brightside Fund which aims to aid disadvantaged youth in America. Your loss, Bachelorette!
