The famine in Somalia has killed 30,000 children in 3 months. In 2011 we have the opportunity to make famine a thing of the past. Lives are in your hands. Please fully fund Feed the Future and help break the cycle of famine for good.

Bono, George Clooney, Jessica Alba, Idris Elba and more unite behind ONE’s new campaign to help focus the world’s attention again on the famine and food crisis in the Horn of Africa.

This summer, a food crisis emerged in the Horn of Africa and now threatens the lives of more than 13 million people. Although we’ve come a long way since the Ethiopian famine of 1984-85, it’s time to make sure this doesn’t happen again – anywhere. In Africa and beyond, the US government is investing in local agriculture, safety nets, risk management, and other programs so that this type of tragedy becomes history. But this fall, Congress threatens to cut foreign assistance programs like Feed the Future that sustainably help people break the cycle of poverty and hunger. This, coupled with increased peace and security can help ensure famine never happens again.

ONE is campaigning to ensure that the Congressional budget does not cut foreign assistance programs that help people break the cycle of poverty and hunger.

Capitol Hill celebrity-watchers were wide-eyed Tuesday as actress Jessica Alba arrived in Washington for a two-day lobbying effort on behalf of the Safe Chemicals Act.

The act seeks to improve the safety of consumer products and increase public awareness about product quality.

Alba hosted a press conference Tuesday and will meet with various politicians through Wednesday to solicit their support. In an interview with POLITICO, Alba said that the act seeks to assure “that the chemicals in our products, that are in and around our children, are safe and tested, because they’re basically untested. And our children as being used as the testing animals, so to say.”

Alba is a spokeswoman for the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition and became passionate about the issue four years ago, when she learned about toxic plastics used to make some baby products. Alba became increasingly disturbed by the issue when she became a mother herself. Her daughter, Honor Marie, was born in 2008; Alba is currently pregnant with her second child.

“The thing about this issue, maybe more than other issues, is that we’re not asking for any taxpayer money. This is really changing the way businesses run their business and the way that they put their ingredients together,” said Alba. “All the issues are bipartisan, or non-partisan, really. It’s not a political issue at all. It’s really just a humanity issue.”

It’s hardly Alba’s first time championing a cause in Washington. In 2010, she visited Capitol Hill in support of the Education for All Act. In 2009, Alba came to D.C. as the honorary U.S. co-chairwoman of 1GOAL, a campaign that used the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa to draw attention to childhood education issues.

Alba says she’s grown to like Washington.

“It’s lovely, it’s a great place to raise kids,” said Alba, who sees some similarities between the nation’s capital and Hollywood.

“The one thing that’s similar to Los Angeles is I feel like there’s just one industry,” said Alba. Washington has politics and “in L.A., you’ve obviously got Hollywood.”

Joining Alba at the press conference was New Jersey Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who first introduced the Safe Chemicals Act.

Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel joined thousands of charity runners in Times Square today to show their support for the Revlon’s annual women’s cancer fund raiser.

The Hollywood actresses delighted fans when they arrived at the Revlon charity run in New York to participate in the beauty brand’s 14th Annual Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) Revlon Run/Walk.

Both Jessicas are Global Brand Ambassadors for Revlon and have fronted numerous advertising campaigns for the beauty brand through the years.

Pregnant Alba, 30, stepped up on to the event stage to speak out about the dangers of women’s cancer.

Dressed in cute black workout leggings, trainers and an oversized Revlon EIF event T-shirt, she cheerfully trotted across the stage talking openly about the importance of the Revlon event’s 14th year.

Alba had just celebrated her 30th birthday two days earlier and looked to be in exceptionally high spirits as she skipped across the Revlon stage, exposing her growing baby bump through her T-shirt. (DailyMail)
