Soclose to that Oscar gold! Literally! Soclose!

We've just learned that Selena Gomez is a part of Girl Rising with Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.

The film is part of 10×10 — a brand new grassroots organization that works as a global action campaign piece for girls' education. Ooooh!!!

Selena and her Oscar-recognized co-stars have lent their voices to the Richard Robbins-directed film, which tells the stories of girls from all around the globe in pursuit of their dreams.

INSPIRING… AS USUAL…

The campaign's first event will be hosted by Christian Amanpour and will occur on October 10, the night before the UN's first International Day of the Girl. Pretty exciting!!

In a statement released this week, they describe the event a lil' like this:

"On this unforgettable evening, artists, writers, activists, and girls from around the world will come together, through stories and performance, to inspire awareness about the importance of educating girls. Special guest speakers include: Marie Arana, novelist and journalist; Shabana Basij-Rasikh, Managing Director of SOLA (School of Leadership, Afghanistan), who dressed as a boy to get an education in Afghanistan; Azure Antoinette, poet and spoken word artist; Lindsay Brown, Seventeen Magazine's "Pretty Amazing" winner, Notre Dame student, and founder of the non-profit SEGWAY."

Sounds fancy!!

Can't wait to see what comes of this. We always love seeing celebs use their platforms for something special!!

    Are you just another forgetful hearted American?
    We are all very proud to call ourselves Americans, the nation that comes to everybody’s aide when a disaster throughout the world, except if the disaster is in America itself. We have celebrities and corporations giving Millions and Billions to 2nd and 3rd world countries, but can’t spare a dime for a homeless or hungry American Veteran.
    There are so many celebrities that make their Millions and Billions here in this country, and yet they will spend all their money on two and three houses in foreign countries. You have all of these Veterans Organizations, but they want donations, but they don’t help the Veterans that are in need.
    Take this letter, pass it around, send it to companies, corporations, and athletes and see if any of these people have a soul.
    I want to thank the two individuals that have given from their hearts. I have been donated $67.48 towards my goal. God Bless the two that have donated to me. Your help would provide me a sturdy deck, it would provide me with an awning, it would provide me with a lip going from the deck to inside my home, and it would provide a lift that would allow me to exit my home to the deck. Please Read links for complete stories

    Any donations are a big help, from a $5.00 donation, to any amount that you feel comfortable with.
    Respectfully,
    Frank L. Sample, a veteran that has given some, while my friends I knew gave all.
