If you're a country in need, any help would be awesome.
Even better, though, is if that help is coming from the legendary Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku!
That's exactly what's happening for Uganda!
Hollywood and Silicon Valley decided to come together for a common cause, to raise money for THRIVE-Gulu, a charity dedicated to helping Ugandans thrive again after the trauma of war.
Specifically they want to help by getting their voices heard using technology and social media among other things.
Here's what Joss Whedon said at the Dushku-founded event:
"The most basic human need is humanity, the most basic need is to have something to thrive for, to have an identity, to be heard … we have to understand that without thriving, there's no surviving… because if we're just surviving, if we're marching towards nothing, it's a prison march."
And we're so happy to see a collaboration between Silicon Valley and Hollywood — it's about time they came together to do some good in the world!
Keep up the amazing work, Eliza!
