Forests are vital to life on Earth. They purify the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, offer a home to much of the world’s diverse array of plants and animals. And even doing all those things and much more for us, it is being destroyed at a rate of 48 football fields per minute. Awareness is the first step to really making a change. I support #HUGATREE #lovenature @world_wildlife 🌳🌳🌳 As florestas são vitais para a vida na terra. Elas purificam o ar que respiramos, filtram a água que bebemos, oferecem um lar para grande parte das plantas e animais. E mesmo fazendo tudo isso e muito mais para nós, elas estão sendo destruídas a uma taxa de 48 campos de futebol por minuto. A consciência é o primeiro passo para a mudança. Eu apoio #hugatree #amoanatureza

Just did a talk at the @ANAmarketers #BAASH conference on how actors and brands can find more authenticity by caring about the world outside themselves. We can't, in this Information Age, knowing intimately the needs of people and the planet, ignore the world around us. You are disingenuous if your sole purpose is to sell yourself, or your products. Give-back boldly, and take the financial risks needed to do the right thing. #chicago - Thx @fandango for making it possible.
