gerard butlerIn a new article for USA Today, Gerard Butler opens up on mixing charity with fame — and how becoming successful has made him want to give back even more. Here are some excerpts:

“For a good part of my life, I’ve been a bit of a rogue — not always living the best, healthiest, most responsible life. But I feel like I’ve turned myself around, gotten my personal life and career together, and I love what I do. Along with this contentment has come an increasing desire to give back to others.”

“Last January, I took part in the Hope for Haiti telethon that George Clooney organized, and I was overwhelmed at the love and support that came in from across America and around the world. It was a great experience, but what touched me even more was how thankful and appreciative the donors were to me — even though they were the ones calling in and donating money.”

“If I’m being honest, I have to say I’m a bit of latecomer to the world of giving back. It’s mostly come since I started acting. With an increased profile, I was approached to support various causes. I used to think “why me?” but then I realized that lending my support to an important cause can raise its visibility and hopefully encourage others to support it, too. We all have a voice and the ability to make a contribution — whether financially or through volunteering.”

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.

Humane Society Serves Pork to Save Dogs…WTF?!

All animals matter morally, equally.
