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:
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.

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
