F*** Famine [VIDEO]



Advocacy platform, ONE, launched a new public service announcement yesterday to raise awareness about the growing number of child deaths attributed to the famine in the Horn of Africa. The premise: a list of celebrities including George Clooney, Bono, Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, Ewan McGregor, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Mike Huckabee, and Colin Farrell say’F*** You’ to Famine. The real obscenity, however, is that ONE estimates 30,000 children have already died in the last 3 months from the famine in Somalia.

ONE is hoping users will watch the video and donate their voice by signing a petition and spread the message to their friends that famine is man-made – not an act of nature. There’s also a French version (with some decent, and some amusing, attempts to convey the message by the same celebrities).

Let me know what you think about this latest initiative by ONE and its dream team of celebrity endorsers by leaving a comment below!
