What about helping the USA children? Plenty here to help that Hollywood turns a blind eye to. Hollywood will do anything to get world recognition.

Gena...Ben is my friend. He's a funny, serious devoted Brother. As are many of the celebs. They've been a great comfort to me, on my journey into healing...I think the thing is this, Gena, that many Americans who are doing something right here can do so with their incomes where their incomes are!! But, the costs for works overseas is much more costly, for several reasons...and Hollywood celebrities can afford to do so much more overseas, than the average American can on this level...And...

As someone with very limited resources and a small income, I have always had a passion for the African people who have suffered for so very long! It frustates me to no end that the nations military forces are not allowed to go in and help these poor people who are being tortured and murdered daily. We have no idea what its like to live in such conditions. The psychological effects alone would be enough to ruin a person, but somehow those people persevere! You are a Good man Ben! If I can be of help please let me know!

Yes, Debra; seems to me the United Nations representatives spend more time sitting on their duffs, like too many politicians...and not doing their JOB...to protect human rights & civil liberties & TO DO something, like the divers citizens & groups who DO...for the "Health, Education & Welfare" of ALLAH's ALL global citizens, not just the rich capitalisitic countries, in our gluttony & selfishness...it's aggravating..............and those 6 gay brothers put to...

I think it's a great vision & I thank u Ben for reaching out to those who aren't able to help themselves! I disagree with the man who commented that u seem "self focused" at the end of the video as u sat on the bench. Many people go thru life & never raise a finger to make a difference in their community, much less another nation not their own! We all should be able to sit on that park bench at the end of our lives & say, 'I've at least done my part to make a difference in this world!'.

I cannot hear the video yet; I must bring my own headphones to this library to do so; So, I only watched the video..."self-focused?" Didn't hear what was said; but, it's not wrong to be "self-focused" if it's only "your self" focusing, in the Spirit of Samadhi, to do the good that you have to do...I'm seeing "self-focused" as another expression for "meditation."

Charity begins at home! There are needy kids in delapidated inner cities of America who could use some role models like Ben Afleck. He does not ahve to go to Africa but can start in any city of America.

As a teacher, I cannot know whether any of my pupils will become evil at some point in his/her life. I don't hide behind the curtain idea that I'm too small to worry about these things but I continue to teach because one of my pupil may become the next Einstein. You - Ben - give lots of money to them but are you really involved? personally? If you save somebody you are (partly) responsible for his/her future actions.
I agree with your point that violence is wrong for the World but you...

I agree with your point that violence is wrong for the World but you should note that the violence is only one of the tools for un-fair behavior. Most behaviors deemed as un-fair or counter-productive in Western countries, are fair-game or custom - in other realms. For example, the same man who "fight for peace" can see no connection between violence against the "evil fighter" and violence he use to discipline his wife. He doesn't know that all the bad things derive from un-fairness. I believe that what you think you give them and what they think they got from you, are two different things.

Any way, it is good that somebody worries about more than his/her own person.
