Jim launches the 'Better u Foundation'.

The 'Better u Foundation' and charity updates - N West

Known primarily as an award winning actor, comedian, writer, producer and Hollywood 'Big Gun', more recently Jim Carrey added philanthropist to his ever expanding list of achievements.

Many of you may have seen him recently on Oprah supporting his girlfriend Jenny McCarthy as she discussed her latest book 'Warrior Moms', to which he contributed a heartfelt chapter.

Together they both sit on the board of the charity 'Generation Rescue' , defined as-
'an international movement of scientists, physicians and parent-volunteers researching the causes and treatments for autism and mentoring thousands of families in recovering their children from autism.'
and during the Summer they took on Washington DC in their 'Green our Vaccines' march, raising public awareness of the potentially toxic additives in childhood vaccines.

But it doesn't stop there........

Recently Jim himself launched a website dedicated to his charity 'Betterufoundation' .
Working on a Global level the charity aims to support and provide clean water initiatives through 'Life Straw', cheap wheelchairs for the disabled, educating farmers in poor areas and at home supporting Generation Rescue.
Based on a very simple, compassionate set of core values, the charity regards collaboration as the key element to implement change. The sharing of ideas and the breaking down of barriers are key motivators behind Betterufoundation's goals.

To fully check this exciting new initiative out you can find it at-

The Picture of Jim overshadows the "Mission Statement&

Postby Canadian Jayne » Thu Oct 02, 2008 4:27 pm

It would be better if the pic was downsized and in the corner.
Does Jim say he endorses the site.?
Best to wait until there is some actual confirmation.

I love the music & the lone Canada Goose flying..

Scenery, sound and movement and the smiley all give you a good feeling when you go on the site.
It is still hard to read the written letter when you initially go on the site.
Hopefully that will be corrected either have the picture delayed before Jim comes on or reduce the size of the picture or put the pic in another location so the intro can be read.
