"In a brutal attempt to silence her voice, it grew louder."
As you all know, I’ve been trying to keep up with the story of Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize-nominee Malala Yousafzai. Malala is the fifteen year-old girl who miraculously survived a brutal assassination attempt by members of the Taliban. Shot in the head when she was fourteen for blogging about the importance education for young girls in her community, writing about this girl gets me so verklempt every time– agh! She just sounds so amazing! And I was really happy to see that her new charity was getting some attention from people like activists and philanthropists like Angelina Jolie. The actress just made a great contribution to a fund named after Malala and dedicated to the education of young girls. Click inside to learn more.
A New Plan
Back in April of 2010 we learned that Madonna launched plans to build a school for girls in the African nation of Malawi. After about a year of false starts and problems, Maddy‘s plans for a girls school in Malawi crashed and burned. Today we learn that she has regrouped and relaunched her efforts for a new plan. Now, Madonna hopes to launch a school initiative in Malawi that would educate both girls and boys. She shared a couple of photos from her recent trip to the region, click below to learn more. More »

'Scandal' Cast Members Were There Too!
Who knew the 2013 Human Rights Campaign Gala was gonna get so scandalous?! LOL, some of our favorite people from ABC’s Scandal came together on Saturday evening in LA for a good cause. Kerry Washington, Darby Stanchfield (AKA Abby), and Katie Lowes (AKA Quinn) attended the gala and they looked pretty darn good. Kerry rocked a black Jason Wu gown and looked, as usual, like a total barbie doll in the face. Lance Bass was also in attendance with boyfriend Michael Turchin. Peep the gallery for more!

Yesterday we saw amazing photos of our dear Britney Spears looking utterly AMAZING as she flaunted her hot bod at her sons’ soccer game on Sunday. Today we learn that Britney is not only beautiful on the outside but she is also beautiful on the inside. It is being reported today that Britney happened upon a down on his luck homeless man who asked her for some change and she gave the man $100 free and clear. I mean … does this woman sound like a saint or what? More »

Selena Gomez hit up the black carpet last night at The 21st Annual Alliance For Children’s Rights Dinner in Beverly Hills. The Spring Breakers actress rocked a long, black cut-out dress and kept her hair down, which I thought was a nice change of pace from her traditional red carpet looks. Peep the gallery for more! Sadly, Selena‘s rumored boo Gucci Mane was nowhere in sight :(

Earlier today we saw photos of Prince Harry hanging out with some deaf children in Africa and right now we get to see some photos of newlywedded actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively hanging out with some sick children in Canada … because today is, apparently, the day that celebs hang with adorable children in order to get into our good graces. Ryan and Blake paid a visit to the Health Sciences North Foundation hospital to spread some cheer to some very sick children and, naturally, the photos are crazy cute.

Giving Back To The Hometown
As you guys may know by now, I have waayyyy to many issues with with Rihanna‘s personal/public life to write about the pop star as much as I once did. But good news is a good thing, and celebrity charity can be just as interesting as celebrity drama. Rihanna has been spending time in her hometown of Barbados over the last few days, and we’re just learning that she’s donated a considerable amount of money to a local hospital, in the name of the grandmother she lost earlier this year.
