Ben Stiller launches "original" Text2Give campaign

Ben Stiller tells Lance Armstrong about his "original" idea to start a charity called STILLERSTRONG in order to help the community of Ceverine, Haiti and build a new school there.

Stiller's campaign is not without detractors...and pending lawsuits. Most notable by Lance Armstrong himself who hastily video taped a response to StillerStrong in an emergency Armstrong Foundation board meeting this week. We'll see who's tongue in cheek is STRONGER.

Stiller teamed up with MobileCause partner CauseCast to create this real mobile giving campaign.

Unfortunately, Veterans Day -- which began more than half a century ago as a profound national holiday -- has now become little more than a day for people to skip work or a chance for shoppers to find a good sale.

We should do better than that. And beginning today, we can." read more
