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 and voted on. Check out this video of Chandra:

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
