I didn’t even know these two people knew each other or ever even crossed paths.
It turns out though that they do have one thing in common and that is female empowerment and the two of them started a foundation that helps teens in other countries.
The particular goal of the foundation is to bribe tribal leaders with cash not to mutilate the genitals of female tribe members.
Apparently cash gifts can work miracles in overcoming a centuries old tradition.
The teens are then sent to a city to go to school and have a life away from their tribe. So far, the two women have saved about 200 teens from the practice.
They each essentially have bottomless wallets to help as many as they are able but have issues getting someone to the tribes at the right times and making the payoffs and coordinating logistics.
They are helping two or three people at a time and feel like they are doing great work considering they have only been doing it for about a year.
The two women are A+ list but in entirely different fields. One is a singer and the other an actress.
They both like to throw out that fake British accent from time to time.
