Ben Stiller Helps Raise $1 Million to Feed the Hungry in Somalia (Video)

Ben Stiller has already helped raise over $1 million to support an effort to deliver food to Somalis facing starvation.

The 51-year-old Zoolander actor teamed up with the NFL’s Colin Kaepernick, YouTuber Casey Neistat, and Jerome Jarre of Vine and Snapchat fame to raise the funds – and they did it in just 19 hours!

“This is the story of what can happen when the power of social media is leveraged for something good,” Casey said in a YouTube video, explaining the steps they took to achieve their goal.

The process involved Jerome taking to Twitter (in a now-viral tweet) to ask Turkish Airlines to fill up one of its flights with food and other supplies. Stars like Ben and Casey then followed suit, and the airline delivered – it plans to carry around 60 tons of food to Somalia on its first flight over.

Somalia is currently facing a drought and famine crisis, with more than 6 million people (over half the population) in need of food. (via CNN)
