Scarlett Johansson is taking her involvement in humanitarian work even further. After skipping the Oscars last month to tour India with Oxfam, Scarlett is back with a plan to help out refugees in Sudan. She’s donating 2,000 pairs of shoes through Soles4Souls, an organization that gives people in need the gift of footwear, and their latest campaign called the Million Pair March.

She’s not the only one pitching in. Other stars like Parker Posey, Kristin Chenoweth, Moby, Don Cheadle and Jessica Alba are also supporting the campaign to raise $1 million and collect one million pairs of shoes to benefit the refugees.

“Bringing sandals to remote villages will change the quality of an impoverished person’s life overnight,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder of Soles4Souls. “Wearing shoes can stop hookworm infections, as well as cuts and puncture wounds from sharp objects that can result in permanent injury. It helps to end the cycle of pain.”

The situation of refugees in Sudan really does seem to be one of the top priorities of Hollywood’s humanitarian workers. We’re looking forward to more stars really making the trip to see for themselves how conditions are over there.

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
