Saw today an interesting video featuring Jeff Bridges and efforts by many to alleviate hunger in the US.

I have not been a fan of Bernie Glassman lately (clown nose etc, and Zenny commercial stuff), but anyone who can raise awareness, and recruit an actor to get the word out, deserves props.

It's great to see anyone use their high profile for community awareness.

You might like this one too... John Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen.
