Already, it’s quickly picking up momentum, and it’s being sprinkled with the same celeb stardust that will (hopefully) help springboard the message far and wide. After being nominated by her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney took to Instagram to share her participation in the challenge.
A new challenge has swiftly made its way around social media. Nope, this isn’t the ALS ice bucket challenge that saw celebs like Anne Hathaway, Bill Gates and Taylor Swift willingly chuck buckets of ice-cold water over each others heads to promote awareness of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (though that one helped raise over £100 million for its cause). This new one, the Do Your Part Challenge, is similarly underscored by the desire to help people who need it, but in a reflection of the times we find ourselves in now.
“So our world is going through such hard times right now and my sister just nominated me to help people – whether it’s with food, or I’m getting your child diapers or whatever it is – DM me and I will help you out,” the singer told followers.
The star explained that she would pick three stories and do what she can to facilitate their needs. And, to help spread the positivity, she nominated her boyfriend, fitness instructor Sam Asaghari, her friend Cade Hudson (not to be confused with actress Kate Hudson) and actor Will Smith to do their part, too.
So, if you’re looking for a way to #doyourpart – giving back however you can and encouraging others to do the same – why not try the challenge yourself. Oh, and tag your friends.
I’m Sorry, but Why Didn’t Anyone Ever Tell Me Owls Run Like This?
Owl running from aww
There’s nothing quite like a cute animal video to brighten your day, but how about one that’s both cute and pretty hilarious? A kind soul shared this video on Reddit of an owl running, and you know what? I knew they had legs under the wings and the feathers, but I guess I never realized just how long those legs were.
Maybe owl-lovers were already privy to this tip that owls have long legs, but for me, well, it was news. Correct me if I’m wrong, but does it not look like this owl is a proper lady who is hiking up her skirt before skipping across the road?
One commenter on Reddit put it ever so precisely when they wrote, “Yeah, owls are like 70 percent legs, 30 percent floof.” So perhaps this is why I love this so much – after all, the more floof the better. This video in particular has been shared around the internet a few times, and this posting alone has over 67K upvotes on Reddit. It feels safe to assume that maybe I’m not the only one whose mind was blown by what it looks like when owls run. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to continue my journey of watching animal videos with these ridiculous Golden Retriever ones next.
