If the Insta-Famous can sell the masses wholesale on an illusion, then common logic dictates if they banded together they could also do a boat-load of good. Because we’re so much better than this. They could, say, make their bio’s link to Red Cross’ affiliate Hands for Hunger, and post the image above with some kind words. They could use their tremendous influence to give needy Bahamians access to three nutritious meals a day.
And then you create an positive asterisk on this ill-fated festival. One that reads something like:
*But after the failed event, Americans generously launched a campaign to support Hands for Hunger’s ‘No One Goes Hungry’ campaign to provide less-fortunate Bahamas residents access to heathy meals.
Why the Insta-famous likely won’t do this: The sad reality is that the Insta-models are running away from the Dumpster Fyre as fast as they can, and any retraction or offer to help might hurt their chances for another overpaid opportunity in the future. I hope I’m wrong, I hope they pitch in.
Anyway, I’m donating $25 to the help fund the Bahamas’ campaign to eradicate hunger on the island. And I’m not doing this just to be an apologist for millennials’ bad behavior. I’m pitching in mostly because, with all the bad news out there, I feel like doing something good in the world today.
