“It is our responsibility to make noise, ask for justice, educate ourselves on issues of race equality and, above all, spread love.” Thus wrote Jennifer Aniston on her Instagram profile, in a post in which she asks to sign the petition of Color Of Change, a charity group defending civil rights, for the arrest of all four policemen involved in the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. But at her appeal, the Friends actress immediately followed up with an important donation: she decided to donate 1 million dollars (about 885 thousand euros) to Color Of Change, the association that felt closer to her sensitivity
In the first weekend of June, the whole world took to the streets again to demonstrate his disdain for the Floyd murder, in every country we protested shouting our indignation, we gave our support to associations such as Black Lives Matter. And there have been many Hollywood stars (Kanye West for example) who wanted to make their voice heard at this time when a situation of profound injustice that black people still experience every day has emerged once again.
Aniston herself said, “This week has been excruciating for so many reasons. We have to be aware that racism and violence have been going on in this country for a long time – and the situation has NEVER been okay.
However, Jennifer Aniston’s sensitivity was already known. Like many other celebs during the coronavirus emergency, she too got involved and decided to auction her black and white portrait to help fight the covid-19. The image was taken in 1995 by friend and photographer Mark Seliger and sees her posing naked with her now iconic Rachel hairstyle. “100% of the proceeds from the sales of this portrait will go to NAF Clinics, an organization that provides free coronavirus tests and cures nationwide for those with no health coverage in America,” he wrote.
