Since joining social media just this year, Salma Hayek has focused her attention on doing good for the world by way of call to action Tweets. It’s not an easy job, but it’s how Jesus would be attending to the needy if he didn’t necessarily want to leave his yacht parked off the coast of Cannes.
Hayek’s latest push is for WASH, an acronym international organizations use to describe politely getting third world people to stop drinking poo water out of the Port-A-Potty basins. If you’re not fortunate enough to have amazing tits and marry the billionaire who owns Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, potable water might not just come to your table with a cucumber slice and giggle filled bubbles. You’re going to need to ask somebody to help you dig a decent ditch separate but equal to the shit ditch running down your village main street. Hayek is here to help.
She’s endorsing Global Citizen, an organization which gives you points for re-Tweeting important social and political messages and enters you into sweepstakes to win concert tickets or get into Twitter heaven when the time comes. The Peace Corps is passé. Think of how much good you can do retweeting Salma Hayek. If we could do Vietnam War protests all over again, we’d be hitting send at Starbucks while earning cool prizes. Why does my latte suddenly taste like human waste? Your fault for not trying harder.
