Haiti & Ben Stiller – After the quake
One could have never anticipated the catastrophic natural disaster that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010. We have to admit the fact that we were just mid-stream with Ben Stiller’s charity STILLERSTRONG.ORG when the earthquake hit was beyond eery. Although the initial campaign would have been releasing more of Ben Stiller’s humor via YouTube and on www.stillerstrong.org around now, there is clearly an appropriate time and place. While the focus of the charity has changed and the strategy has shifted, the charity remains intact.
The last update to the site consisted of this statement
Conan, who has been getting his fair share of press lately has been helping promote STILLERSTRONG on his show, because any donations made to the foundation are now being directed towards emergency aid.
When the campaign first launched, many people thought it was a joke. Many were offended by the use of parody in spoofing LIVESTRONG. But here in this video clip you can see right from the horses mouth the support Lance Armstrong gave the STILLERSTRONG campaign. Because at the end of the day, these celebrities that have dedicated their time, brands and money towards these philanthropic causes understand the value of their endorsement.
