Stand Up To Cancer With Spider-Man!

Spiderman tees

Stand Up To Cancer is going with a Spidey-city theme this year, New York City to be exact.

Andrew Garfield, who stars in The Amazing Spider-Man and is an ambassador for Stand Up To Cancer, explained why they went with the comic book hero for their 2012 fundraising shirts:

"One of the great things about Peter Parker (Spider-Man) is he’s a regular guy from Queens who is transformed into a hero. These shirts underscore the idea that anyone has the power to be a hero. Cancer is one of our greatest villains. I’m proud to join others in standing up to this disease."

The shirts also carry an extra special meaning for Andrew and his co-star slash girlfriend Emma Stone after the Spider-Man producer Laura Ziskin lost her battle with cancer while filming the flick in 2011.

If U wanna rock tees like Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy click on over to standup2cancer.org to get yours today!

Wow! This Cat Has 26 Toes!!!!!!!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueRescueCatCrazzzzy

cat with 26 toes

Cutting his nails must be AWFUL!

Check out the photo (above) of Daniel, an orange-and-white Tabby cat from the Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center…who has 26 toes!!!!!!

Normally, a cat would have 18 toes, but due to a "genetic mutation called polydactylism," Daniel has two extra toes on each of his feet.

Fortunately, Daniel's deformity is causing some good at the rescue center, which is asking people to give donations of $26 so they can buy a new building! And yes, that comes out to $1 per toe! Ha!

We wish the rescue center luck with their fundraising efforts, and we send our best wishes to Daniel!

He sounds like a TOE-rrific cat! LOLz!

What an unbelievable gesture! This band deserves all the accolades they've received this year!

Arcade Fire performed an intimate, surprise show for fans in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti on Tuesday night, on top of raising over $1 million for post-earthquake relief for the devastated country!

Sources claim the band, whose singer, Régine Chassagne, is the daughter of Haitian immigrants, performed their own hits Keep the Car Running, Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains), and Haiti, as well as covers of Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, and Cyndi Lauper tracks!

Truly amazing! We're sure this meant the WORLD to not only their fans down there, but the entire community!

You guys should be EXTREMELY proud of all of your efforts! We certainly are!

EXCLUSIVE: A Statement From Bono's Charity ONE

Filed under: Oops!Bono

bonoe.jpg

Bono's charity ONE is looking to clear the air after some sketchy details about their organization came to the surface.

Here's ONE's statement on the recent allegations against them:

Contrary to the suggestion in the New York Post yesterday, ONE does not fundraise from the general public and we are not a grant-making organization. We are funded almost entirely by a handful of philanthropists on our board of directors to raise awareness and pressure political leaders to fight extreme poverty through smart and effective policies and programs, like the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, which is saving 4,000 lives a day.

ONE has nearly 120 staff in the US, UK, Germany, Brussels, France, Nigeria and South Africa whose job it is to fight for funding for effective programs like the Fund and the US global AIDS program PEPFAR. As a result of those programs, today more than 4 million Africans have access to life-saving AIDS medication, up from only 50,000 people in 2002. Malaria deaths have been cut in half in countries across Africa in less than 2 years.

As other examples of our work, ONE helped successfully press for debt relief for Haiti after the devastating earthquake there and we recently played an important role in the passage of a law in the US requiring oil companies to report any payments to government officials – an effort to end backhanded deals between energy companies and corrupt politicians that hurt people in poor countries.

ONE has been a relentless advocate for these programs and policies and we have used the media spotlight to ensure world leaders keep their commitments. The media kits that were mentioned in the New York Post article, which were produced for far less than was cited and delivered by staff and volunteers, not a messenger service, were an effort to focus reporters on the Millennium Development Goals, a set of promises world leaders made to cut poverty, hunger and disease by 2015.

In hindsight, the kits were not the best way to gain attention for the issues and we regret that sending them distracted from the work we are trying to do and the issues we care about.

Thoughts?
