What do Maggie Gyllenhaal and husband Peter Sarsgaard have in common (besides two awkward “a’s” in their last name)? They both have a soft spot for children.

The couple recently teamed up with Espirit to open an SOS Children’s Village in Alibaug, India.

The project is one of many SOS Children’s Village franchises around the world, which are dedicated to providing family-based care for children who have lost their parents or can no longer live with them.

“Despite the dynamic economic advances India has enjoyed in recent times, it may be hard to accept that India has the largest population of street children in the world with at least 18 million children living or working on the streets of urban India,” said Gyllenhaal. “Protecting children’s rights is a universal responsibility that requires global commitment from us all. It’s a privilege for Peter and myself to join hands with Esprit and promote the remarkable work of SOS Children’s Villages.”

SOS Children’s Villages currently house 78 thousand children in 132 countries worldwide. The Gyllenhaal/Sarsgaard village will offer homes to an additional 140 children.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
