100 Atlanta-area celebs and artists came together last Wednesday for IKEA’s “It’s About Time” charity auction to benefit the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (G-CAPP). Each celebrity or artist took an IKEA clock and turned it into an original timepiece. (What is it with celebs getting all artsy these days? I love it! I totally demand my own window treatment designed by Patrick Dempsey.)

Clock designers included a mind-blowing list of stars: Dr. Maya Angelou, Hank Aaron, Jane Fonda, Sally Field, Lily Tomlin, Wanda Sykes, Ne-Yo, Ludacris, Big Boi, Martina Navratilova, and artists Paul Hagedorn, Maggie Hasbrouck, Gail Foster, Two Chix Lighting, Thomas Swanston, and Michi.

Fonda, the founder of G-CAPP, said, “This event will substantially support one of our most important initiatives and simultaneously raise awareness for the G-CAPP organization. I am excited about this innovative event as it will help our flagship program, Second Chance Homes, and address the issue of homelessness for teen mothers. I believe that this unique event will help fight against teen pregnancy in Georgia.”

G-CAPP’s Second Chance Homes Program provides housing and support for young mothers and works to help bring these mothers and their families out of the cycle of poverty.

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.
