I guess I'm a little slow with my celebrity charity eyeopeners, but Gawker's one off from the Keep a Child Alive campaign is throwing me off more than most quasi ewww/good intentioned...whatevers.
The concept is credited to Iman (her photo makes sense) and the photography is Michael Thompson (the work is fierce). How this translates to SJP and Alan Cumming wearing "tribal" facepaint and declaring, "I am African," I don't know.
Each and every one of us contains DNA that can be traced back our African ancestors. These amazing people traveled far and wide. Now they need our help.
But it seems to me that calling for rigorous treatment availability and demanding recognition and commitment of/to global humanity need not also include a campaign with Richard Gere trying to suggest that he (and, in turn, all Americans) lives and breathes the same horror of non-access is, well, a little gross.
