I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if kindness came in human form, Justin Baldoni would be it.
He’s not only a Hollywood director, actor and dad of two, but somewhere in between it all he finds time to host an annual “Carnival of Love” for L.A.’s homeless, support indie filmmakers with his “Six Feet Apart Experiment”, tackle tough questions about masculinity through his “Man Enough” series and do regular – and rather hilarious – Instagram live sessions with his fans.
And since he’s doing so much good for us, I figure it’s only fair we do a little something for him in return, right?
It’s called the Be Love Give Love campaign – a weekly event where the foundation can distribute meals and help conduct free COVID-19 testing.
“Our unhoused neighbours are experiencing the devastating effects of food insecurity, limited access to essential items and inadequate medical and health necessities,” it reads on the fundraising page.
“In response to COVID-19, The Wayfarer Foundation – in partnership with Chris Pan and the MyIntent Project – is committed to providing healthy meals each week to our neighbours on Skid Row and providing this community with face masks and the basic necessities required to protect themselves during this crisis.”
For every donation made, a private donor has promised to match that amount up to US$100,000.
And can you imagine the good they could do with that? According to EndHomelessness.org, there are close to 50,000 people who are homeless on any given night in Los Angeles County. Thousands end up on Skid Row.
This is the story of Ron and Oge. We’re so inspired by their special friendship and the reminder that ANYTHING is…
So what are we waiting for?
Nothing at all.
Be love and give love…because we definitely need more of it right now.
