Between making plans to film her new movie “The Getaway” with Ethan Hawke and spending quality time with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez has a lot on her plate. But that’s not stopping her from continuing to support UNICEF and raise awareness about the hunger crisis in Africa. Through the power of social media, Selena is rallying her fans to raise funds to feed children in the Sahel region of West and Central Africa. As Selena says in the beginning of her PSA bellow, “Right now more than a million children can die in the Sahel Region.” This is an urgent matter and Selena wants all of us to help out.
According to UNICEF, out of all the celebrities and influencers who shared this call to action, Selena sparked the most conversations. Props, girl! She also recently shared a pic of her and her new volunteer partner who will be accompanying her during her next UNICEF trip.
From the looks of it, when it comes to taking action, Selena is just getting started. On Friday, she stopped by “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” and announced her appointment as the first ambassador of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, which builds broadcast media centers at children’s hospitals. The goal is help kids and their families heal through providing a place for patients to explore the creative outlets of radio, television and new media. Keep up the inspiring work, Selena!
