Eme has kindly scanned us the February 2009 issue of Spanish Elle and translated a couple of interesting quotes from Scarlett:
“I’m an actress, not a politician. If I can use my profession to make a better world, why not? I prefer talking about my collaboration with (RED) instead of talking about how much I like chicken salad, it has much more meaning to me. If I can grab people’s attention and achieve that they buy products in an intelligent way, it’s a step forward. My support doesn’t outshine the work that volunteers do, which I have witnessed in Africa. Each of them contributes considering their real possibilities. On one side there are those who dedicate all their heart and soul to help here and on the other side those who buy an object knowing that a percentage will go directly to an humanitarian organization. Both commitments are valid and not incompatible at all.”
“People from industrialized cities won’t stop buying products even though other countries are suffering. They will continue buying mobile phones, mp3, computers, clothes… and taking coffee. So why not choosing (RED) products? Here, doctors tell us that they can build hospitals thanks to that money. When you learn about that, there are no more questions. […] People don’t always have time to contribute to charity… not only can they buy the products they want this way but also help the needed.”
