Chandra Wilson Teams Up With Folgers, Habitat For Humanity

at . Comments

Ever the humanitarian, Chandra Wilson (along with her three children) will be starring in a new Folgers Gourmet Selections commercial. Partnering with the Greater Los Angeles chapter of Habitat for Humanity, Chandra and family hope to raise up to $150,000 to help families in need.

The press release detailing the award-winning Grey's Anatomy star's latest charitable endeavor reads as follows:

The Amazing Chandra Wilson
Starting today, consumers are encouraged to create their own Folgers Gourmet Selections commercial about what makes their morning special. The commercials are simple to create and can be completed in four easy steps online. Each time someone submits a commercial or votes on their favorite submission, Folgers Gourmet Selections will make a $1 donation to Habitat for Humanity up to $150,000. Consumers will be able to share their commercials with friends and family members and encourage their participation. P&G Coffee has already pledged $150,000 to Habitat for Humanity New Orleans and hopes to raise an additional $150,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles for a total contribution of $300,000.

Grey's Anatomy is one of my favorite shows, so you could only imagine how excited I was to hear that I was going to be working with Chandra Wilson at the Vermont Billy Carter Habitat for Humanity site. Folgers is donating $1 for every commercial that is uploaded onto wakeupspecial.com and voted on. Check out this video of Chandra: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
