Hollywood couple Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have donated $1 million to support victims of the conflict in Syria.

The money will be split equally between two international non-governmental organizations: Save the Children and the International Rescue Committee.

Half the money will fund a program to vaccinate more than 250,000 children against a potential measles outbreak in northern Syria, according to Save the Children. The other half will go toward education, health care, shelter and sanitation to support families — particularly women and children — both inside Syria and in neighboring countries who are suffering as a result of the ongoing conflict.

“By allowing us to make their generous donation to Syrian children public, Sacha and Isla are helping highlight the tragedy of the issue today,” said Justin Forsyth, CEO of Save the Children. “These are desperate times for Syrian families facing bombs, bullets and torture in Syria. The couple’s donation will save many thousands of lives and protect some of the most vulnerable children.”

David Miliband, president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee added, “Sacha and Isla’s donation is a great expression of humanity, and a challenge to do more for the most vulnerable. I hope it is an example to many others seeking practical ways of making a difference during the Christmas and New Year season.”

Reps for the two actors did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.

From “The Activists E1 ” “Medical Patients React To The ‘Failure to Treat’ Policies of the IDSA”

Friday, May 15th, 2015

"Medical Patients React To The 'Failure to Treat' Policies of the IDSA" from The Georgia Pictures Company on Vimeo.

Lyme disease is not getting proper treatment in the Untied States. Lyme activists believe that IDSA guidelines foster improper non thorough testing, and sometimes lead to aggression against Lyme literate doctors. Drug costs are high..and in the majority of cases not insured. It is a classic case of Big Business and Lobbying against he American People, and, quite often, their representatives in the House. Over the past year Lyme Activists have been scoring more and more legislative victories around the country…this is the story of the Mayday Project, a leading organization in informing the public about Lyme, and the inadequate treatment the Medical Community is providing for Lyme Patients as of 2015.

Donna Shalala to head Clinton Foundation

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

The Clinton Foundation will get new leadership in the form of longtime Clinton ally and former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala as it continues to face ongoing questions about its foreign fundraising practices, former President Bill Clinton announced in Coral Gables, Florida on Friday.

The news of Shalala’s new role comes as the foundation has caused all-but-certain 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton some political trouble in the final weeks before her expected campaign roll-out. Republicans have latched onto reports that the foundation resumed accepting money from foreign governments after Clinton left the State Department in 2013 — a policy which the organization said it would review if Clinton pursues the White House — and to her use of a personal email address as Secretary of State.

Story Continued Below

And the foundation has also come under scrutiny with the swift departure of CEO Eric Braverman, a close ally of Chelsea Clinton.

Additionally, it was discovered that the foundation had accepted donations from companies that were simultaneously lobbying the U.S. government while Clinton was working as secretary of state.

Braverman left in January after clashing with members of former President Bill Clinton’s circle. Hillary Clinton confidante Maura Pally has been serving as CEO in an interim capacity since Braverman’s departure.

Shalala, 74, announced in September that she would resign from her position as president of the University of Miami at the end of the school year after 14 years leading the university. She reportedly will move to New York to lead the nonprofit, which is officially named the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Shalala served as HHS secretary for all eight years of Bill Clinton’s presidency, and she joins the Clintons in Miami over the weekend as her school hosts a foundation event. By leaving the foundation in her hands as Hillary Clinton prepares to run for president, the family hands off their $2 billion global philanthropic enterprise to a long-standing friend with fundraising experience of her own.

The former cabinet secretary has raised nearly $3 billion during her tenure in Miami, garnering a reputation as a skilled financial operator. The foundation will likely need such leadership over at least the next two years, as Clinton will not be able to directly raise money for it while tapping donors to fund her own presidential ambitions.

She joined her husband and daughter at the helm of the organization after leaving the State Department in 2013, and headlined on Wednesday what is likely to be the foundation’s last major fundraising event before her campaign.

In choosing Shalala, the Clintons tapped an official with significant management experience — she also served in top roles at Hunter College and the University of Wisconsin-Madison — and a reputation for not being a rubber-stamp after opposing Bill Clinton’s welfare law when he was president.

But she has also been helpful for Hillary Clinton, hosting her at a friendly appearance in Coral Gables in February 2014 as Clinton was gaining momentum as a presidential hopeful.?

Hillary Clinton and Shalala, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2008 by President George W. Bush, served on the board of the Children’s Defense Fund for years together.

Correction: This story has been updated to correct the spelling of Pally’s name.

Lyme Treatment: The Mayday Project.orgs’s Allison Caruana

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

By Milon Henry Levine The Foundation Network PHILADELPHIA:

This weekend the primary thing we saw preventing the IDSA (Infecteus Disease society of America) and The CDC from changing guidelines for treating Lyme’s disease, felt like insurance and pharm lobbys, and guys inside the IDSA that hold patents to current insufficient Lyme testing…ie pretty serious conflicts of interests. As for the pharma companies, bumping up the prices of certain antibiotics dramatically in the face of their surge of usage,the pharma industry need to be shaken up ala Elon Musk. A compassionate player with big resources has to come in.

The Clinton Foundation and The Third Way

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

In beginning to look at the CGI….Gonna start by looking at their own media. So below a film….in which the basic philosophy of what the CGI (The Clinton Global Inititive) does,  is described. And the most key element of the entire thing….is “We dont’ believe in the artificial boundaries between governments, nonprofits, and businesses…” This is the famed Troika that can and will and is redefining public spending. This….is the 3rd Way…personified with pretty much exponentially more power and grace (and most importantly: effectiveness) than anywhere before it. And… looking at Transparency…. inspiring it….getting really into it…taking it way beyond the pie graph….across these Three Areas of Public Spending……again….you’re looking at a whole new world.

The primary thing the CGI does is put people together …but it puts people together ACROSS THESE THREE SPHERES. There will be a day that an agency like the MTA will not be able to bottle up public transportation spending….that day will come because of the understanding and promotion of the TROIKA that The Third Way epouses, and the CGI works actively across, every moment of every day. Businesses, NGOs, and Governments. And an individual…can rally the support of all three to get something done. That’s an amazing new development in Public Spending…and it’s held up as an example almost singuarly…by the Clinton Global Initiative. And if this philosophy were to become the dominant model of Public Spending around the world…ur looking at a progressive revolution finally beyond that made by FDR beginning in 1933.
