Cool, I can't wait to tell my husband, he looooooooves Pearl Jam.

I think it's better when celebrities do things like this than political, but it's a free country so I don't have to like it!

I think I am going to do a walk or something for kidneys, to help raise money for the nephcure foundation or for someone local to me who cannot afford it.

Anyhow, I think that is awesome!

I just read that he's had Crohn's sinc he was 21. It's nice that someone with popularity and a similar disease is active in helping out.
