The American Giving Awards. I don't know, but that just seems kind of weird to me. A whole awards show devoted to people who give. People who are charitable. Am I missing something? Why is it important that "celebrities" such as Gary Sinise and Olivia Culpo (who??) present awards to people/organizations for doing something that we should all be striving to do anyway - - be charitable??! I just don't get it. Are we that narcissistic that every good thing we do needs to be honored?? Do we really need star-studded tributes to those who give to their communities?
What am I missing??
“What's the point of doing something good if nobody's watching?” Celebrity Nicole Kidman said that. That makes me want to scream!!!!
"Point that camera over here because I'm going to do something good now and I want to make sure everyone is watching - - because when there are no cameras I'm really a selfish, self-centered person."
"Oh, you're so awesome because you gave $1 million to xyz charity - and you did it on your own TV show so that we could all see how generous and charitable and wonderful you are!!"
Okay. I'm done. Please be kind. Please be charitable. Please be compassionate. But we don't necessarily need to know about it. That kind of makes the whole "good deed" thing less - - oh, I don't know - - good deedy.
