I was all ready to write something about you being in Brazil on speed boats with your Edward hair, standing on balconies, looking through windows and walking through airports but then I saw a news piece where Kellan Lutz called you “mind blowing” and I clicked over to read hoping I could make fun of you both or call you le ghey in a future post until I saw this picture
and I changed my mind about everything and this entire post. So here’s what I really want to say…
Why can’t you be more like Kellan?
Ok… so I know you’re confused and wondering why I’m not ribbing you or fawning over a photo of you in Brasil. I just can’t right now. It’s that picture up there. It’s not Kellan man chesticles or his weird leather tie or his ‘is that thinning’ hair?, that made me stop, it’s his necklace. The whistle necklace, because when I saw him wearing it, I knew HE KNEW. He was wearing a Falling Whistles necklace. What’s a Falling Whistles necklace you ask? Welll….
Falling Whistles gives a small window into our world’s largest war. Originally just a journal written about boys sent to the frontlines of war armed with only a whistle, readers forwarded it with the same kind of urgency in which it was written and demanded to know –
what can we do?
The Falling Whistles campaign launched with a simple response – make their weapon your voice and be a whistleblower for peace in Congo. Read the story and buy the whistle. Proceeds go to rehabilitate and advocate for war-affected children. Share their story and speak up for them.
Needless to say it’s an amazing, amazing cause AND an awesomely fashionably accessory with a deeper meaning. And it just makes me love Kellan even more that he knows about Falling Whistles. I also love how Kellan uses his Twitter and celebrity to help raise awareness for many great causes. AND it makes me think of you, Rob. You helped out with the Haiti telethon and I heard you may have become involved with the World Wildlife Foundation after shooting Water for Elephants but I think there’s something to be said for being more vocal and active with causes that need to have some light shed on them and maybe that’s why I’m writing you and asking you to be more like Kellan. Well, minus the because imagine if you were hot and played Edward AND loved good causes??? You’d be even more unstoppable, like I would just give up cause that’d toooo much goodness.
So could you think about being like Kellan?
PS Thanks for showing up in Brasil and I swear we’ll start talking about it but for now you understand
Ok, so I wouldn’t normally commandeer LTR for philanthropic reasons but I just couldn’t get over it and wanted to share the great story of Falling Whistles with you all cause I know you all have big hearts and would love it. Go visit their site, watch the video and read their story, it’s truly amazing. Trust. Oh and there’s a TON of Rob stuff from Brasil I’m weeding through. UC and I will hit that next time.
