george clooney, humanitarianIf classy had a ‘face’, it would look exactly like George Clooney’s easy-on-the-eyes mug. The confident yet ever-humble Academy Award winner was recognized for his dedication to global humanitarian issues during Sunday’s 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Award ceremony and spent the majority of his time on stage shining light on the value and necessity of assisting those who befall unfortunate circumstances well beyond their control.

After being presented with a shiny new Bob Hope Humanitarian Award by former ER main squeeze Julianna Margulies (the fourth ever distinction given to a deserving entertainment figure), Clooney immediately called on his fellow colleagues in the industry as well as viewers at home to “find a way to keep the spotlight burning on these heartbreaking situations” in Haiti, Pakistan, Sudan and the Gulf Coast “long after the cameras go away.”

He raised an excellent point, one which we tend to forget. Once all of the pomp and circumstance of fundraising telethons pass, charitable funds dry up and volunteers once again return to their daily lives, victims of environmental disasters and/or political strife are typically left holding the bag. In far too many cases, they don’t even RECEIVE international support and once the headlines fade, we forget that a flood, tornado or earthquake even ravaged their far off corner of the world.

Well, George, you’ll be happy to know that your message was received loud and clear. Sabrina and Daniel Schutzsmith — co-founders of a philanthropic marketing company called Mark & Philhave set up a website announcing their desire to create a charitable system that engages the public “for the sake of all humanity.” They respectfully request that the Oscar winner just e-mail or call them for a little friendly brainstorming session so they can kick their movement into high gear. Let’s all rally together and spread the word, ya dig?
