Celebs Read and Celebs Give Back

Posted by at 9:40 am in Celebrities, Reads | Permalink

Celebritites_read_clapboard On October 25, dozens of celebrities came out for a Carnival to benefit Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, a free sleep-away camp for children with cancer. It’s staffed with doctors and nurses but it’s really a place for the kids to have fun and forget that they are sick. We got some very special videos from teen stars like Jake T. Austin, and Debby Ryan talking about why it’s so important to give back to charities like this one. (Don’t miss Debby’s video. It had me practically in tears!)

And, of course, since we are THE STACKS, we asked them about their favorite books too! Check these out. . .

Meaghan Martin recommends A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.
Nicole Anderson recommends Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
Bailee Madison recommends Soupy Saturdays with the Pain and the Great One by Judy Blume.
And there are even more at THE STACKS Video Hub.

So, now that these famous celebrities have inspired you, you have 2 assignments for today:

  1. Do something to help someone less fortunate than you.
  2. Find a great book to read.

Just kidding; it’s not really an assignment, but I hope you do it anyway! In fact, I suspect you probably already do. Let me know in the comments the ways YOU give back to charity.

    I love that show! I was so glad to have those actors/actresses share what books they like. I have worked at a soup kitchen.

    i think celebs should read thick books because if they are actors then they will be able to memorize more.
    if not- books are excellent stress releivers!
