We CARE A Lot. SMG presents an award in Washington.

Not groundbreaking news, but nice to hear. Find out more about CARE here.

So proud to be her fan! Good thing I didn't know she was in the neighborhood, or I might have had a hard time . . . breathing. ;-)
It is really great SMG's involved in things like this. On another note, I now have the Care Bears song stuck in my head. ;)
Neat. It's always nice to see celebrities involved in this kind of thing. Even though I avoid gossip magazines, and there's been more attention paid to some celebrity humanitarianism lately, I feel like 95% of my celebrity knowledge (willingly gained or not) is gossipy-bad. This kind of thing deserves more (and better) press than it usually gets. I hadn't known about this particular group, either.
How very appropriate for Buffy's portrayer to be the presenter of an "I Am Powerful" award to an empowered woman.
SMG's presence in DC was mentioned in the "Names and Faces" section of the Washington Post on Saturday, June 16. It's at the very end of this column. Unfortunately, they didn't elaborate on the CARE event or the award.
Sunfire; I'm thinking you're onto soemthing. Somebody (who knows hwo to gather the info, whiche xcludes me) should set up a "posi-gossip" site listing the charities and other good works that cellebs are willing to have known about. (quite a few keep their good causes secrtet, for at elast 3 different good reasons I can think of off the bat)
Woot! Great stuff.
Wonderful of SMG to take part in an orgainzation like that.

Kind of along those lines, a while back there was a link to Sixdegrees.org founded by Kevin Bacon wherein celebrities 'declare' the charities they support to allow their fans (and anyone else obviously) to contribute to those same causes. So long as there's a fair balance among the various charities it can only be a good thing I reckon (Seth Green is on there among many others).

(and good for SMG, both for presenting the award and for actually going out of her way to witness the problem first hand)
