Stars Unite for East Africa Food Crisis Awareness

Celebrities across Hollywood are coming together to use their influence for a good cause.  On August 9, more than 150 of them will take to their Twitter feeds and Facebook pages; the goal being to reach more than 700 million people between them.  The goal is to bring more awareness to the food crisis in East Africa and supports “Save the Children,” an organization raising funds to bring food, water and medicine to the area.

Filmmaker Kevin McDonald created a short film for this new movement which is accompanied by Bob Marley’s song “High Tide or Low Time.”  Rita Marley, Bob’s widow and father to Stephen, had this to say about the new movement:

“Not one child should be denied food nor water. Not one child should suffer. Along with Save the Children, we must stand up together as friends to put a stop to this, to feed our children and to save their lives.”

The food crisis in Somalia and East Africa is affecting more than 10 million people.  1 million children will face starvation without help NOW.  Kudos to these celebs for doing their part. The full list of celebs participating can be seen here.
