Health-A-Rama, a benefit for Sierra Randall, will be held on North Park Boulevard in Opelousas this Saturday, July 9th.
Randall is going through treatment for Leukemia...
I am a child of the 1980's, a time when MTV was actually cool among other things. One thing I do remember as a child were all of the cool PSA announcements on television. Myself, like just about every other child from that era, watched Pee Wee's Playhouse. We all remember the PSA with Pee Wee Herman telling you that smoking crack is bad!
This Saturday, Relay For Life is having their yard sale, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.
It all starts at 6 a.m. at Lafayette High, in the parking lot on 3000 W. Congress. Everyone loves a great yard sale, AND you’ll be helping a great cause...
As I'm sure you know by now, Breaking Bad star RJ Mitte is from Lafayette. He does indeed have a minor case of cerebral palsy. He's using his fame that he received from Breaking Bad to help the Shriners Hospitals Campaign, which is where he was treated as a child.
If you want to scare your kids into staying in school...maybe...just maybe, this is the way to do it? This 'Stay in School' viral video created by the Learn For Life Foundation of Western Australia ends in shocking horror that could very well be received as comedy gold. You decide.
The New Year is right around the corner and if one of your resolutions is to quit smoking, then this PSA might give you a little more motivation. This award winning 'anti-smoking' PSA shows kids in Thailand with cigarettes, asking adults for a light. When the adults try to tell them that smoking is bad, causes lung cancer, etc, the kids turn the tables around on the adults.
This one will throw you for a loop. People doing harmful things to kids really get me fired up. The Charlie Daniels Band lyric "...big tall tree and a short piece of rope..." comes to mind. As I watched this video, I was ready to climb through the screen and punch that dude. Until the end.
I know what you're thinkin. TWO Andy Samberg stories in TWO days?!? I know, crazy, right? But people, this is an issue that's been brought to light lately. People eating people cannot be tolerated! And in true Samberg fashion, he went on Jimmy Kimmy Live to debut his PSA that tells us why and how not to! Check out Andy Samberg's Anti-cannibal PSA after the jump!
In 1991, David Lynch, director of such classic cult films as Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Dune, Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart and Lost Highway, made a freaky PSA about litter and the rat problem cause from it in New York City at the time. You can watch it after the jump.
