Oh, to be rich and famous with rich and famous friends. Oprah, Diddy, Kanye, and Kim Kardashian were recently spotted hangin' at music mogul Jimmy Iovine's sweet house party. And we think we know what they talked about.
+ The Drop In Global HIV Infections
This famous foursome is obvi at a party to celebrate the fact that the number of global HIV infections has dropped dramatically over the years. According to the United Nations, death rates fell from 2.3 million in 2005 to 1.6 million last year. Way to go, world, but we've still got ground to cover! Get Yourself Tested and always wear protection, so that —maybe someday — we can celebrate the end of AIDS altogether. And everyone will be invited to that party!
+ How Awesome Malala Is
Or maybe the famous foursome is discussing what a little bada** (in a good way) Malala Yousafzai is. The 16-year-old education activist, who survived an assassination attempt less than a year ago, recently challenged world leaders to come up with $175 million to educate 400,000 Syrian children who fled to neighboring Lebanon to escape civil war. "I can feel what's happening in Syria because it's what happened to [my country] Pakistan," she said, reminding us to all be a little more compassionate about what is happening in nations other than our own.
+ Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and it's something everyone should be talking about. Can you believe that one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime? Yeah, us neither. And domestic violence isn't just a female issue. It's an issue everyone needs to know about, discuss, and do something about.
