In honor of Mother’s Day, actor Ben Affleck today posted a video on his Facebook page dedicated to the Moms in his life (including his wife Jennifer Garner of course!), and the “sacrifices, selflessness and courage” of women around the world.
Could he be anymore awesome?!
In the video, from Ben’s recent trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), you’ll see touching footage of the women and organizations working tirelessly to provide for their families. Founded by Ben in 2009, Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) focuses on working with and for the people of eastern Congo, and believes that local, community-based approaches are essential to creating a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo.
So… how can you help?
Ben is asking his subscribers to SHARE this video on Facebook in honor of the Mom’s in their lives. Fans can LEARN more and DONATE at ECI’s Causes page.
How do you get stars like Glee’s Lea Michele, Terrence Howard, Donnie Wahlberg, Nick Lachey (and wife Vanessa Minnillo) and more to the middle of Connecticut for a weekend?
Well, if you’re Mohegan Sun and you’re celebrating your 15th Anniversary, you invite the “creme de la creme” of celebs, media and even celeb chefs Bobby Flay and Todd English to experience a one-of-a-kid set by Jennifer “J. Lo” Lopez – performing in a skin tight head-to-toe Swarovski crystallized onesie!
The “American Idol” judge took the stage by storm performing many (or most) of her greatest hits with high energy. At one point though, J.Lo got a little choked up before paying homage to her lost loves (Diddy, Ben Affleck and finally and most recently Marc Anthony).
“You want to talk about love? I can talk about love. Oh, the stories!” she said during a heartfelt speech to the audience before breaking out with her hit “If You Had My Love.” Afterwards she said, “That’s the first song I wrote about love. And this is the last song I wrote about love. A lot has happened since then!”
Later in the night, stars like Kelly Bensimon. Jaime Pressly, Tinsley Mortimer (and boyfriend Brian Mazza) and Jesse Metcalfe partied the night away at the official after party deejayed by DJ Kiss.
