Jamie Foxx Announces Telethon for Hurricane Harvey, Reportedly Featuring Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton
Hollywood’s A-listers continue to step up in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastating impact on Houston, Texas.
On Tuesday, Texas native Jamie Foxx announced on Instagram that there will be a telethon on Sept. 12 to raise money for those in need.
“Just wanted to let everyone in Texas know, we got you,” Foxx says, adding that he’s donated $25,000 to GlobalGiving, a non-profit organization that provides a global crowdfunding platform for grassroots charitable projects. “From a fellow Texan, my heart goes out. My prayers go out. September 12 we have a telethon that we’re doing. We’ll give you more details, so we can raise as much money as we can for everybody down there.”
The Sept. 12 telethon will take place simultaneously in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville, and will be aired by all the major networks for one hour, according to TMZ. The star-studded event is reportedly being organized by rapper Bun B and the same team behind the widely praised Ariana Grande One Love Manchester concert.
Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton will reportedly host from Nashville on Sept. 12, while the Los Angeles portion will be hosted by Foxx and tentatively Hilary Duff, who was born in Houston.
Fellow Houston native Michael Strahan is being tapped to host the New York portion of the telethon, TMZ also reports, and organizers are also hoping to secure Kelly Rowland as well as Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons — both born and raised in Houston as well.
Stars such as Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson and the Kardashian family have already donated to Hurricane Harvey relief, most notably Sandra Bullock, who donated $1 million to the Red Cross on Tuesday.

Comments Off on Reese supports the #SpeakUpForKids children’s mental health campaign
This month, Reese is pledging her support to the Child Minds Institute‘s #SpeakUpForKids campaign, to raise awareness, and combat the stigma, of mental illness in children. Watch her special Mother’s Day video below, and find out more at speakupforkids.org.
Last night Reese attended the annual Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Gala in New York City. Reese looked elegant in a floor-length teal gown by Brandon Maxwell, accessorising with Tiffany jewellery. She posed on the red carpet with other celebrities including Claire Danes, Jennifer Hudson, Hayley Bennett and Ruth Negga, and spoke to reporters about why she loves Tiffany’s and her jewellery must-haves. The company are backing an initiative to stop global trafficking for elephant ivory, and Reese voiced her support for this too. We have the first few photos from the night in our Gallery (more are sure to follow), and further down this post are articles and videos from the red carpet:
Reese attended Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Sustainability Panel in New York City earlier today, to discuss the fashion industry’s role in protecting the environment and promoting sustainability. Reese also spoke about the role of women in film, as well as the importance of celebrities using their status to promote positive causes. Reese looked smart in a little navy dress, and accessorised with Tiffany’s jewellery. Read more about the event further down this post, and find the first few photos in our Gallery. You can read more about the work Tiffany’s does on sustainability here.
TIFFANY & CO. HOSTS ‘IN CONVERSATION’ PANEL DISCUSSION ON SUSTAINABILITY
Reese Witherspoon, Michael J. Kowalski and Dudu Douglas-Hamilton joined panel to discuss ‘The Art–and Protection–of the Wild: Preserving Earth’s Treasures.’
Tiffany & Co. hosted an intimate breakfast and ‘In Conversation’ panel discussion at NeueHouse Penthouse focused on the theme of sustainability.
Panelists included Oscar® award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, who wore Tiffany HardWear; Tiffany & Co. chairman & interim CEO Mike Kowalski; and Save the Elephants Activist Dudu Douglas-Hamilton. The discussion was moderated by Tiffany & Co. chief sustainability officer Anisa Kamadoli Costa.
Discussion topics ranged from the rising demand for corporate responsibility and the role of business and brands to the journey of Tiffany jewels and the protection and preservation of wildlife. Mike discussed Tiffany’s commitment to environmental issues, which began 20 years ago and led to the brand paving the way for sustainable practices in the luxury industry. Reese touched on the growing importance of women’s rights and diversity in film, as well as the role of celebrity and influencers in raising awareness for crucial causes. Dudu gave a personal recollection of her family’s role in pioneering elephant conservation across Africa, combatting criminal elephant poaching syndicates, and recent successes as China begins to shut down its ivory trade.
Reese lends her face to designer Tory Burch’s’ #EmbraceAmbition project, which launched today to celebrate International Women’s Day and encourages women to ‘own their power’. Reese in featured in the PSA – watch below – and on the project website, along with many other female celebrities. Tory Burch will be selling #EmbraceAmbition bracelets and t-shirts, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, which “empowers women entrepreneurs in the United States” – shop here (US only).
Today, to challenge the cultural stigmas associated with women and ambition, the Tory Burch Foundation launched the global initiative, #EmbraceAmbition. This nonprofit campaign will encourage women and girls to voice their ambition and to own their power.
In 2004, a reporter asked me if I was “ambitious”. His question made me very uncomfortable. After the interview, a friend of mine called and said, “I really liked the article but you shied away from the word ambition.” She was right. I realized that I had bought into the stereotype that women shouldn’t admit to being ambitious – that it felt, in a way, unattractive.
Unfortunately, more than thirteen years later not a lot has changed. Even though I have learned to embrace my ambition and pursue my dreams, the cultural stigma around being an “ambitious woman” still exists. It is apparent daily, in very public and private ways; from the wealth of studies revealing that ambitious women are frequently penalized for their goals to some of our Foundation’s entrepreneurs sharing that they, “Google how to appear less ambitious.” In most cases, it’s an unconscious bias that women themselves internalize.
We all can play a part in ensuring ambition is no longer a harmful stereotype in six ways:
Talk about your ambitions – do not be afraid to own and voice them.
Be mindful of your own attitudes. Ask yourself, did I just react negatively to a woman for demonstrating her ambition?
Remember that ambition is incredibly personal. Determine what success means to you. It might be to run your own company or it might be to raise your children with integrity. (In my case, it’s both.) Whatever someone’s ambitions are, it’s not our place to judge them.
Support other women. As a friend, relative, or colleague help those around you make their ambitions a reality. When we support each other, we all do better.
Engage men in the discussion. Their involvement will help reduce the cultural biases their co-workers, partners, daughters, mothers, sisters, and friends face.
Join the movement and take the pledge to #EmbraceAmbition and own your power, your drive and your dreams.
