Jessica Alba Has 1GOAL For Children

Jessica Alba shows who’s #1 while posing with a group of children during a news conference to discuss the 1GOAL campaign at the Rayburn House Office Building on Wednesday (April 21) in Washington, D.C.

The 28-year-old actress said, “Incredible day on [Capitol] Hill with [NY Congresswoman] Nita Lowey to announce Education for All Act so all children can go to school.” (1GOAL hopes to provide education to all children.)

Last month, Jessica went on a trip with 1GOAL to Senegal, Ghana, Mozambique and Kenya.

Sometimes I wonder if Jessica Alba knows anything about the causes she supports. For instance I’m relatively confident that if you question Angelina Jolie about her humanitarian quests, she would be knowledge in her answers, instead of providing rehearsed answers. I would actually be able to learn something. But if someone was to question Alba in depth, would she be able to answer the questions?

I strongly suspect that Alba memorizes the literature she is given like she does her lines.

# 2

She could stand to gain around 5 lbs.

# 3

What do you guess she weighs?

# 4

Is this really a good cause for someone with 12th grade education? I think not.

# 5

Does it really matter what her background is or what she thinks?.. As long as she’s activelyy trying to change something her actions speak loudly!
Also
@#4 ..what’s that got to do with anything? would it be better if she had no education at all?
Or if she had graduated from college?

# 6

@#1
I couldn’t agree more. Jolie is always articulate and well informed. Alba, on the other hand, suffers from foot in mouth disease. This is just another photo op for her.

@5 Janine
it’s hypocritical for a ditz like Jessica to be speaking out about education. her actions speak nothing – this is a PR move. and what do you mean “if she had no education at all”? school is mandatory here. the problem is that she never got any education beyond what is mandatory so it’s clearly a low priority for her.

# 8

Funny that she’s promoting education when she didn’t have one herself. Oh, the irony.

# 9

Jessica is not a good enough actress to pull off looking knowledgeable and intelligent. Go back to staging bikini shots for the paps and leave the activism to people like Angelina.

@commonsense: wow! jessica you are great! so young and already supporting charity! don’t pay attention to angelina’s fans they hate EVERY female that is doing positive in the world! continue the work so the CHILDREN lives will improve. thank you.

@lola: @lola: so you are saying that angelina’s charity is an act? sad, charity isn’t about acting, smarts it is about giving and guess what… everyone can give something! the more you do public speaking the better you get! go back and look at hiliary clinton, carolyn kennedy and others…. your world might be angelina however these children need a voice and lucky they have jessica to speak and make us aware. charity isn’t a competition it is about helping, making people aware and for over thousands of years plenty of people have carried on before and will afer angelina. however, i am glad that angelina does too! the more the better….not a competition… sad, angie’s fans … can’t see beyond hate and jealous!!!!!!

@commonsense: at jessica’s age – jolie was running around with a married man nicolas cage or timothy hutton or doing drugs so don’t put others down when your girl didn’t even know the word charity at jessica’s age! be happy they both are givers now!

@terra: what is jolie’s education level? charity is wonderful cause period – i really don’t think you need an education to know that… but i guess some…..

@mw: angelina’s fan should know about photo ops! lol

@commonsense:

I think she does. I also think it’s unfair to speak about things you and I don’t know anything about. I’m sure Angie had to read and learn about the causes she was interested in before she gave her name and face to them. Angie is also ‘hands on’ and wanted to see things up close and personal to be document and return to UN with her findings. Anyone who gives a hand – even by showing up to get the word out to others — is a good person.

@lol:

ITA! Let’s stop comparing people and just speak of the things the ‘individual’ is doing. This is a post on Alba.

I’M A DIE HARD ANGIE FAN, BUT SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID! STOP BRINING ANGIE INTO THIS AND JUST DEAL WITH WHAT ALBA IS TRYING TO DO AND PROMOTE. WHAT A BUNCH OF ASSES SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE!!

@lol
Stop leaving positive comments about yourself Jessica, or at least have Cash proofread them first, like he does all your “writing”. Also, I’m not a big fan of Jolie but I think she went to NYU Film School.

We have a young man in our town here in New Orleans who has cancer, he’s in remission right now, thank God. He’s in sixth grade and has been collecting money and toys for children in hospitals since he was five years old. You don’t need a ‘higher’ education to have a heart and to try and help others. I find alot of the comments here offensive and downright awful. Helping others comes from the heart — whether you’re a sixth grade student or a CEO of a major cooperation. Some of you should be downright ashamed of yourselves.

@ #5 cut the crap… if at least ur arguement would make any sense…
She went to school for twelve years and then took up acting because she loves it, that doesnt mean she doesnt value education?
And what she’s promoting is basic ed… like reading and writing and basic maths. She wants the children to be able to freely decide upon their future..just as she did
That is the point of this entire campaign

@21
“She went to school for twelve years and then took up acting because she loves it”

Too bad nobody loves her acting. Had she decided to study acting, maybe she wouldn’t be so painfully awful at it.

@20
Whom you should be offended by is vapid celebrities attaching themselves to valid causes they know nothing about and using it as a vehicle to promote themselves.

QueenOfTrashin @ 04/22/2010 at 4:22 pm

“Gee. I wasn’t aware that children in America were prevented from attending school. Well. You learn something new everyday.”, she said, facetiously.

doodieman @ 04/22/2010 at 6:03 pm

OK,how much do you guys think she got paid to turn up.

@sam: so? that is a higher level of education! i am not against angelina however you are a jolie fan because if you were not what i said wouldn’t have bother you to the point of calling me jessica! lol!
