For all the people who shop at Amazon, you can choose to shop at smile.amazon.com and select a charity that they’ll donate 0.5% of all products that qualify. charity:water is one of them! :D I know it’s not much, but every little bit helps and I know a few people out there shop on Amazon ;3 Congrats on being able to see your efforts come to fruition!! :D
Thank you for mentioning that! I always forget to tell people about that too!
To anyone who ever uses Amazon, you should really be using smile.amazon.com when you order anything. That lets you select a charity for what @fancyseraph mentioned :) I have charity: water set as my charity because I adore them, but there are others you can choose if you have a preference elsewhere. Also, once you’ve set smile.amazon.com, it does a pretty good job (at least for me, on my desktop) of sending me a reminder when I accidentally try to go straight to amazon.com. It always asks if I want to switch to smile.amazon.com so that I can donate to charity through my purchase.
Congratulations to Viola Davis on her Oscar win for ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role’ as Rose Maxson in the film ‘Fences’ (2016) directed by Denzel Washington at the 89th Annual Academy Awards.
Thank you to the Academy. You know, there’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered. One place and that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed big and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost. I became an artist—and thank God I did—because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life. So, here’s to August Wilson, who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people.
