#KidsWhoCare: “Vivienne, a 10-year-old with a penchant for bouncy princess dresses and the color pink, had a motive. Alarmed by photos she’d seen of Nepalese children hauling enormous rocks down a mountain, she decided in May 2012 to raise money to stop child slavery. When people stopped at her lemonade stand to ask how much she was charging, Vivienne said, “Whatever’s in your heart.”
She donated the $101,320 to Not For Sale, a nonprofit that works to eradicate Human trafficing around the world.”
But she wasn’t finished…http://bit.ly/1e2ozAU
#AmazingLeaders: As one of the first human beings to step foot on Mars, Buzz Aldrin was and still is an inspiration to millions. In 2003 he was given the #Humanitarian Award from Variety, the Children’s Charity, which, according to the organization, “is given to an individual who has shown unusual understanding, empathy, and devotion to mankind.
We are grateful to have had a chance to connect with Mr. Aldrin. He is a lovely man with so much love and respect for the charity world.
"War crimes are defined by the winners." A shocking and unfortunately true quote from an #Oscar Nominated #documentary called The Act of Killing did not win an #Oscar last night but it’s an incredible film about war. Another great documentary nominated for an #Oscar last night is Dirty Wars which presents one of the least-known components in the war on terror, the Joint Special Operations Command which conducts its work in secret and seemingly without limitations. It’s a frightening thing when men are given unlimited power and face no consequences.
Films do more than entertain, they educate!
