According to People Magazine online, Actress Zoe Saldana immediately ran to the aid of an elderly woman who was in a car accident yesterday. The entertainment magazine’s online outlet reported that an onlooker observed that Zoe responded quickly, after witnessing the accident, and even called 911. Showing even more concern for the injured lady, Zoe allegedly fetched the woman’s purse and sweater from the car during the time she waited with her for help to arrive.
Kudos to Zoe for being one of our Featured Celebrity Samaritans!
Kourtney Kardashian’s thoughtful and touching website post about a family who was in a tragic car accident on their way home from a family vacation is the first Featured Celebrity Samaritan on Celebrity Optimist. Kourtney used her platform to relay the story and to help the family raise money for their surviving children, by referring readers of her blog to the children’s trust site. It’s beautiful gestures such as this one, that touch the human spirit and inspire people, including complete strangers, to give back and help others in need. When you take away the what we are and listen to the who we are, the common denominator is the human experience.
