Harrison Ford is voicing a new television PSA for the organization Earth Share in celebration of this week’s Earth Day. The 65-year-old actor is urging people to get behind Earth Share’s network of environmental and conservation organizations. From the website,
“Earth Share supports a nationwide network of America’s leading non-profit environmental and conservation organizations, and works to promote environmental awareness and charitable giving through workplace giving campaigns. Founded by its member charities in 1988, Earth Share is an opportunity for environmentally-conscious employees and workplaces to support hundreds of environmental groups through a charitable giving drive.”
In the video (which you can view here), a little girl is inundated with images of pollution and environmental degradation. At the end, she says, “You promised me the world. Is this what you had in mind?”
With marketing for the next Indiana Jones film ramping up for its release next month, Ford is using the spotlight to focus attention on various environmental initiatives he believes in. National Geographic Adventure recently featured an interview with the actor where he talked about lost worlds, eco-tourism, and how a friendship with a fox turned him onto environmentalism.
