George Clooney Inspires Church To Use Him In Malaria Ad Campaign

George Clooney is an inspiring and devastatingly handsome man.

That’s why we just knew that his shocking announcement last week that he had contracted and beat malaria not once, but twice would motivate people to action! It was a move he made during an interview with Piers Morgan as an attempt to raise awareness and much needed funds to help prevent the disease.

And apparently the Oceans 11 star has done much more than that. According to Starpulse, he has prompted some clever folks over at The People of the United Methodist Church to jump onto the Clooney bandwagon and create a massive print ad campaign to aid in the elimination of the disease.

The church has teamed up with the organization Nothing But Nets to combat malaria in Africa, and raise funds for mosquito nets. To help spread their message they took out a full page ad in various US newspapers on Monday. The ad stated, “Not everyone is as lucky as George Clooney.”

It furthers their point with, “George Clooney’s recent experience with malaria has made the disease a more high-profile issue than it was just a few days ago. Malaria is killing a child in Africa every 45 seconds, yet most of the world doesn’t know. Unlike the 800,000 people that die every year from malaria, Clooney has made a full recovery. We believe that malaria can be eliminated by 2015, just as it was in the U.S. years ago.”

The Clooney speckled ad then concludes with, “Between now and World Malaria Day, April 25, 2011, we are asking as many people as possible to support the cause by hosting a malaria house party or make a donation to save lives.”

It seems like the 49-year-old actor’s goal of spreading malaria awareness is really coming to fruition, and we’re just glad others are supporting the cause to prevent this disease!

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
