Positive Paparazzi: It's Happened... Bono Got An Award For Being Bono

Celebrities Do Good

Don't believe me? Well, TAKE A LOOK, and see for yourself. Yes, he won an award for being himself (and there's an actual good, humanitarian inspired reason, I promise). The day I get an award for being myself, I'm throwing in the chips and retiring to Boca or that Harry Potter place in Universal. You go, Bono.

Okay, here we have a celeb honoring other

Appropriately, Vampire Diaries star, Candice Accola, launched Bite Back for a Cure, the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance’s (TBDA) national campaign to build support for the fight against tick-borne diseases. Ouch! That smarts. In a good way. Hehe.

 Mario Lopez ALSO won a humanitarian award, and like Lopez himself, it's very pretty.

Get this: Some really reasonable fans of One Direction were keeping the band awake while they screamed like banshees outside their hotel. 1D member Liam Payne tweeted that he was frustrated with not being able to, um, sleep, and the fans got, like REALLY PEEVED BOUT THAT. Payne, being the upstanding guy he is, apologized and said how grateful he was to be where he is. Moronic fans notwithstanding.

Rachel Ray's $100K challenge for the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has helped 18,000 so far and it's only been a month since it started! Hey, hay, Rachel Ray, hay, HAY.

Ms. Ray isn't the only one helping our furry friends this week. True Blood star Kristin Bauer van Straten starred in a moving black and white PSA supporting No Kill Los Angeles, an initiative by Best Friends Animal Society (shameless plug: check out our Best Friends kitty vid... it's great).

James Franco's autographed iPad cover could be YOURS if you join in the Speck auction benefiting the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The auction started yesterday and will end July 27 at 4pm EST. Get to bidding! Note: Franco isn't the only star auctioning off personal items(!!!)

Magic Johnson recently honored students and celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Magic Johnson Foundation. What a, wait for it... magical day.

GET OFF YOUR BUTT PSA ALERT: Kristen Bell, Ashley Green, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and others want you to "run 10 to feed 10." C'mon, get up and get runnin'/good deedin'.

Whew! That was a lot of all-star feel-goodness for one post. Here's to the celebs that stood up for a cause, encouraged us to get up off our tookuses, and restored our faith in humanity just a bit more. Cheers to THAT. Have a good weekend y'all.

Non-Profit Matches Veterans with Therapy Dogs for Life Changing Support

** In celebration of "National Pets For Vets Day", we wanted to share this heart warming story about how a service dog is helping a Vet with PTSD **

Brett Simon was a veteran K9 police officer who went on to work as a contractor for the Department of the Army as a bomb dog handler. However, after serving two tours in Iraq, he returned home suffering from PTSD.

Led by his Mom, Shari Duval, who had worked for veteran's charities near their home in Jacksonville Florida, Brett's family undertook two years of research to find a solution to help Brett and others with this condition.

Their research focused on canine assistance for PTSD. Ultimately, they started a non-profit organization. K9s For Warriors, dedicated to providing service dogs to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of their military service (post 9/11).

The Lonesome Boy And The Blonde Haired Angel

When Alex Fischetti thinks back to when he was 9, he realizes how he was different from other kids. "Some people can say that you are odd," he remembers. "Some people can say that you are a little out there." Diagnosed back then with Asperger's Syndrome, a condition that made it hard for him look people in the eye and interact normally, Alex missed many parties and other social events and often felt isolated. But if you look at him today, you see a completely different person.

Now 27, Alex has learned to deal with his condition with the help of some very special people along the way. He works a regular job, has written a personal memoir of his experiences, and has now become the self-described "social butterfly" of Ridgefield, Connecticut.
