From September 6 through 8 Elton Brand of the LA Clippers will be hosting three days’ worth of fundraising events for his personal charity, the Elton Brand Foundation. Named “Elton Brand and Friends Celebrity Weekend,” the event is scheduled to include a fashion show, a yacht dinner and cruise, a celebrity golf day, and dinner with a celebrity on every team.

Brand launched the Foundation in 1999 (when Brand was Rookie of the Year) to help causes he supports in Chicago, Peekskill, and Durham, North Carolina. Organizations he chooses in these communities support after-school education programs, promoting kids’ participation in sports, and single parents. He chose to give grants to these areas because they are where he’s lived and played.

Now that’s giving back to the community!

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
