I have created a Facebook fan page for Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish on Following their Dreams, Making it Big, and Surviving in Tinseltown.
But the best part: for every “like”, comments count, too, I am donating a penny to the Motion Picture and Television Fund (MPTF). Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and D.W. Griffith, also founders of United Artists started this private, non-profit charity over 90 years ago to help those in the movie industry who had fallen on hard times. It hasn’t gotten any easier. Today the fund serves more than 150,000 people annually with healthcare and other social services.
Charlie Chaplin once said, “We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery.”
So, please, go to Facebook and “like” Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish. And if you love silents, film noir, westerns, or some other genre on the silver or small screen, ask your friends to ask their friends. The pennies will add up.
Ready, set, click. Thank you.
