Nicole Richie & Joel Madden's PSA for UNICEF

Nicole Richie & Joel Madden's PSA for UNICEF

New parents Nicole Richie & Joel Madden lend their support to UNICEF in a campaign to raise funds for 8 million children affected by the Myanmar cyclone.

Watch the PSA below! But here’s what Nicole and Joel say anyway: “We want to talk to you about Myanmar, a country that’s just been devastated by the biggest disaster since the tsunami. Ten of thousands are dead and rising. 8 million children’s lives hang in the balance. These kids need food, water, medicine, shelter and protection. Because UNICEF has been on the ground in Myanmar for 60 years, they are able to deliver emergency supplies right now. Please help UNICEF do whatever it takes to save children’s lives. Take a moment to visit UNICEFUSA.org and please give generously.”

Get over yourself @ 05/13/2008 at 10:59 pm

Like we need a lesson from these two. All we have to do is turn on the TV and see the devastation for ourselves, instead of listening to these two no-talents preach.

You know damn well that as soon as they finished this PSA, they probably went shopping in Beverly Hills and spent thousands of dollars on stupid clothes and shoes they don’t need, instead of sending it to Myanmar. They probably couldn’t locate Myanmar on a map if you asked them to.

UNICEF needs to use more credible spokespeople.

lol, who is joel madden, is he the football players son? If he’s not, then why does anyone even know about this clown. As far as anything else is concerned, taking advice from drug users “im sure you know im talking about” will only leave you with a drug users view of what’s right. What a drug user thinks is right, isn’t all that right. Just like any other ‘non-profit’ giving money to these types of things benefits nobody. At the end of the day the money goes into the hands of pigs, alot of the time the money makes one big circle, from the US, to these other countries where US companies setup shop to accept the money, then it comes right back here. It’s all a shame, America is falling apart, wanna give you money to someone give it to your neighbor.

Are U kidding? @ 05/14/2008 at 1:04 am

No one I mean NO ONE with half a brain will think these two asswipes are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They are getting paid and only thinking of themselves. Lord help us all!

nicole has a beautiful, soothing voice.

Hey. Good for them. The Myanmar tragedy is horrific. If UNICEF can get these poor people any help, all the more power to them. I’ll donate.

Wow. I just read a few of the other comments. Do you people watch news? Have you seen the devastation over there? Who the eff cares why or how or what their motivation for doing this is?

THE PEOPLE OVER THERE ARE IN DESPERATE CRISIS. IF THEY DONT GET HELP, MILLIONS MORE WILL DIE OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE. THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT WILL NOT HELP THEM.

WHO CARES HOW NICOLE LOOKS OR SOUNDS OR WHO THE HELL JOEL IS. WAKE UP PEOPLE. THIS MILITARY GOVERNMENT IS COMMITTING GENOCIDE ON THEIR OWN CIVILIANS.

Good cause but for three lines, they could learn them instead of reading them. It doesn’t make you feel like they mean it when their eyes are going left and right, reading the whole thing.

Wise words.. nothing is allowed to be contributed to the children or adults unless the communist government allows it and must be distributed by their army or their select workers. Do not contribute any cash or food or goods until you know that the victims and living shall recieve your contributions directly as witnessed by representives of the USA, other countries, otherwise your donation will be diverted to Communist leaders or used as bribery towards selective favored rulers and their Military for personal use.

I think these 2 have been building a track record of philanthropy, and I thnk it is great. Yes, it is an unemotional appeal, but they are not actors, they are just celebs with a new baby themselves, and who probablly jumped at the chance to feel helpful.

I bet in a few years, people will talk about her wild days in the past, like AJ, and be happy that motherhood changed her.

They have started a foundation on behalf of their kid, I think that is good of them to do something instead of nothing, let’s criticize too those who have not said naything nor given any money to any cause OK?
let’s start with… (put name here)

I second and third these comments:

Please stop criticizing and just DO SOMETHING!!!!!! Whether you like them or not, someone somewhere does. They are using their fame to call attention to the suffering people are going through in Myanmar. They also as someone else stated, started a foundation in their child’s name.

NO ONE walking this Earth is perfect and everyone has or will make mistakes. We need to stop judging and start doing.
