Change Me

I make it sound like being a hostage to work is always a bad thing. But full disclosure: when I get to work on something like Getty Images’ Change Me program, it’s worth all the hours away from Smithlet, the boys and Casa Nonfamous. And in this case I do mean all the hours.

Please, please check out the site. It’s very simple… you select one of the million of images on the Getty Images site and post it to Change Me with a short comment. For each submission, Getty Images will donate $10 to Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

But don’t take my word for it: mcjoan at Daily Kos is far more eloquent, and far lovelier.

While I’m not going to blog about all the behind-the-scenes details of the launch event at the Tribeca Film Festival last week, I think it’s fair to say that my posse and I throw a pretty decent party. I did get to meet Richard Gere. I did not get to meet Michelle Rodriguez. But I did eventually get a cocktail and can’t remember a time when I needed one more. Oh, OK… one more party tidbit: DJ Spooky is one of the nicest guys on the planet.

And though you can’t link directly to individual submissions, you can search the site by name. So find your favorite celebrity or our dear friend Seth Row. Seth, your submission is really beautiful. I hope to say the same about the rest of you and your selections.
