Lean into it, Selena!

J-Lo is leaning into it, too (but she’s too old to be the ‘poster girl’ here.

the goal of enlisting corporations and philanthropists to raise $22 billion for global vaccinations.” -

Charity from the same billionaires who profited from the pandemic?

Good luck with that.

Those poor people. Not only do they have no vaccines, but now they've got to listen to this god-awful music on top of it???

“Low-income countries not only need this welcome fundraising effort; they need access to COVID-19 vaccine doses,” Tom Hart, the North American executive director of another nonprofit, The ONE Campaign, said last month about the overall drive for donations. “The United States has secured over 550 million excess doses that could be used to help end the global pandemic faster.”

Mr Hart is on the ball. Let's hope donations come flooding in to help those countries less fortunate than the "first" world.

A virtuous effort @ToastedHeretic 1:37pm AND a significant, available supply. Yet, as always, ‘politics, posturing and profit’ in those same countries will get in the way of proper distribution.

IF a “third world” country like Japan has trouble securing proper refrigeration units, appropriate needles for the the type of doses, etc., Do you think other third world countries would be better prepared, staffed and equipped?

OMG I hope they have auto tune and pitch correction for J-Lo. This over the hill women can not sing one sentence in "TUNE". I went to a J-Lo concert because the tickets were given to me for free. In the middle of the first song I left, I couldn't take it. I called my friend to thank him for the free tickets and he asked if I was still at the concert and I said no I left. He laughed and said thats why I gave them to you because they were given to me and I knew she couldn't sing. The band was good she was terrible. Just a big bootay and a fake Hollywood smile. Selena being young I think will do well never heard her live but I am sure she is better than J-lo even Mariah Carey laughed at J-lo's singing, saying she hurts my ears!!!
