Actor Michael Douglas has found his cause celebre – helping children learn about cultures through the Internet. Don't laugh just yet. While it's not Jessica Simpson's Operation Smile, it warrants some media attention.
Douglas is teaming up with the seemingly bipartisan Global Nomads Group.
In an interview, Douglas went on record to say that technology helps children understand and feel more a part of the world.
He said the Global Nomads Group had conducted a successful trial with Iraqi and American students way back in 2003, and that the trial actually gave American students the opportunity to understand Iraqis as fellow human beings.
As a disclaimer, I went on to the Global Nomads site and it's entirely clean of sexual content. I guess Douglas is over his SMS addiction, or has found a more suitable outlet, leaving his mind and spirit free and unclouded to take on more serious socially responsible work.
