Sean Penn Supports Youth Volunteer Mission To New Orleans

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

On Monday, actor/director/political activist Sean Penn met several dozen young volunteers in Indio, California and put them on three biodiesel buses headed for New Orleans to help residents still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

But it isn’t just New Orleans that’s reaping the benefits of what Penn dubs “the Dirty Hands Caravan.” The group also plans to stop in Tucson, Ariz. to help the Humane Borders group build water stations on and near the Mexico-Arizona border. They also plan to make good-will pit stops in Las Cruces, Austin, Houston and Morgan before finally arriving in New Orleans.

Penn is famous for his outspoken stance on many issues, including global warming awareness, AIDS research and the anti-Iraq war movement, and said that he wants the young people “to find out whatever they care about.”  You might have already guessed, but Penn is footing the bill for the entire trip including insurance, marketing and all other costs that might accrue — which is estimated to total $150,000. WOW!!!

For me, the very best part of writing for Ecorazzi is being able to report stories like these. With all the crap out there about the frivilous lifestyles of the rich and famous it’s so refreshing to hear about these kind of generous deeds. Rock on Sean Pean…rock on!!

Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

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.
