Matt Damon's Toilet Strike Takes Off!

With technology being as badass as it is these days, pretty much NOBODY on the planet should be without clean water! Matt Damon ESPECIALLY feels this way, hilariously talking about taking a "toilet strike" a few months ago to raise awareness for his humanitarian effort, Water.org. Basically he won't be going to the bathroom until everyone on the planet has clean water!

Then, amazingly, other celebrities joined his pledge to not expel their bodily waste until the issue was resolved — including Jason Bateman, Jessica Biel and Josh Gad!

Now, EVEN MORE are joining (above)! This time Olivia Wilde, Richard Branson, and Bono join up!

The PSA couldn't get funnier, even with the alarming REAL statistics thrown in: 780 million people (1 in 9) lack access to safe water.

This is a real cause that demands real attention. There's no reason why we can't have a laugh while helping the world!

President Obama's World AIDS Day Commitment

Filed under: Barack ObamaHealth

We are SO glad to hear him say this, and what he's promising could be a great step in reducing the amount of AIDs cases and deaths!

We're also really happy Obama decided to mention help preventing kids being born with AIDs, as that stigmatism should never be placed on a child's shoulders from the beginning. They had no choice in the matter!

All of us need to work harder on prevention, screening, and treatment!

Who's to say we can't pledge alongside him??

Elton John Sues Banker Over Failing To Pay Pledged Charity Donation

Filed under: Legal MattersElton JohnFitnessCharity

Elton John

Note to other "philanthropists": If you pledge to make a donation to charity, you better make that donation!

Elton John is suing a Dubai-based banker, Spencer Lodge, who pledged to donate $1 million to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, but NEVER paid up!

The donation was supposed to be in exchange for a "date" with Elton and his partner David Furnish at the musician's White Tie and Tiara Ball.

The date apparently never happened, so we guess this banker felt he didn't need to hold up his end of the bargain. Although asked by several supporters of the foundation to pony up the money, he has yet to fork any of it up!

Clearly this guy thought he was making a transaction instead of a donation, so it will be inneresting to see how this plays out in court.

Do U think Spencer Lodge should still deliver the promised goods despite never having gotten his "date" with Elton and David?
