Gisele Bundchen: Energy Poverty is 'Unjust'!

Gisele Bundchen: Energy Poverty is 'Unjust'!

Gisele Bundchen steps out of her apartment for the evening on Monday (January 16) in Boston, Mass.

The 31-year-old Brazilian supermodel is back home after spending time in Africa as a UNEP ambassador and recently spoke about the reality of energy poverty.

“Energy affects everything. Children can study at night when they have access to electricity. If we can bring electricity to everyone, we can help people to survive,” Gisele expressed at the UNEP press conference in Nairobi.

“It’s unjust if people do not have access to electricity. Energy for all is achievable. Just 2% of global investment is needed,” she added.

she donate her time and money, that very nice and considerate.

# 2

I love how she’s went from fashion model in her teens and 20s to business entrepreneur and global ambassador . I would probably think less of her if she were ONLY just modeling panties and being some se.x. symbol still in her 30s but she actually seems to have substance. She’s taken it to a whole other level and I love the growth she’s shown. Kudos!

Well then donate all your money to pay for the light bill of some small country. …So you will feel better , but don’t expect to pass the bill onto Americans we are already bailing out Europe with our hard earned money… dumb bitttcccchhh

Useful Idiot is just a tool of the global elites.
That’s why the media is sooooo far up her asssssss, not because of big honking sexy nose.

Blah, blah, blah. This coming from someone who used to smoke like a chimney.

# 7

She’s just using political causes to further her career though it’s gonna be hard being that she makes our ears bleed and we can’t understand half the shiiit she says cause of her single digit IQ.

# 8

Whatever happened to a helping hand instead of handouts…too many lazy people mooching off productive people.

# 9

Well actually you could see her leaving clubs wasted all the time like Kate Moss is seen doing right now partying for her “38th” birthday leaving night clubs looking a hot mess. but you will never see her acting in such a way. Instead you see her going to the gym and doing charity. She doesn’t have to at all, but she does. When other models do charity such as Christy Turlington or Natalia Vodianova they are praised but Gisele gets her usual stalkers bashing. Quit your biased hate already, its not affecting her, lol. Its a waste of time and energy if you haven’t figured that out by now. In fact I’ve seen her fanbase go from fangirls & fashion lovers to environmentalists,eco activists,pediatricians,doctors,breast feeding activists etc..so she definitely has a new more admirable fanbase than most other models do, which is a great reflection on her.

@Michelle: Michele:

This is a celebrity blog post and we are most certainly entitled to our opinions- even those that differ from yours.

@Frozoid: My name is MIchelle with two L’s thank you do you know me? Please don’t act like you do., and I am entitled to my own as well. Anyways you are a known Gisele troll on here with nothing but rude things to say ALL THE TIME, so your opinion is mostly in one ear and out the other.

Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light. ~Norman B. Rice.

Uau! Its crazy how much @ughhhh: She donates more then any celebrity has so please get your fact straight. Why should she donate all her money ? Even if she did that still wouldn’t be enough to help everyone in need . She is trying to bring this issues out to the media so we all can help in the way we can. What are YOU planing on doing to help others ??????

Anyone here who is judging her for doing good. Should be taking a good hard look at themselves and seeing what they are doing to make this world a better place.

goodlife…all the countries you listed have corrupt govts. or dictators in power. No amount of money will ever be enough, it will be stolen and never reach those in need…Hello Haiti

gisele is amazing! not only is she a great model, look how she uses her fame and fortune.. I always thought that one of the best things about being famous is that you have this power to make ppl care about issues like these… that sometimes just need the push from a celebrity to get ppl to notice..
She is a smart intellectual woman, and she deserves all the goodness in her life.

It would be amazing if there were more people like her in this world.
