Positive Paparazzi: Kristen Bell Celebrates The Repeal Of DOMA With A Proposal

Pop 2 it

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd have been engaged since 2009, but refused to get married until their LGBT friends had the same rights as they did. Bell once said, “I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends.” Welp, since DOMA was repealed, she proposed to Shepherd via Twitter and they are GETTIN HITCHED Y'ALL. I don't know why I just said that. I don't think either of them are even from the south. Um...

AAAANNNYYYYWAYYYYYYYY

It's summer a.k.a. SUMMERRRRRRR, which means many things, including Avril Lavigne's new summer camp. Camp S.T.A.R.S. (Summer Time Avril Rock Stars) is a program that gives children with disabilities the chance to attend summer camp. How's THAT for puttin a dash of awesome sauce on a cause?

In other news, Jennifer Aniston was recently named Ambassador to Saks Fifth Avenue's Key To The Cure Campaign. Other than the laboriously long title, this is great! Who better than to be the face of finding a cure to breast cancer? No one. That's who.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation donated money to Beat, a non-profit dedicated to beating eating disorders. Winehouse's brother, Alex Winehouserecently revealed that his sister had an eating disorder and would have lived a little longer if she were not also battling with bulimia. The donations serve those living with the disorder and pay tribute to Winehouse's memory.

A whoooole bunch a musicians kicked off Summer of Hope, a social media event that benefitted one charity: City of Hope, a research, treatment and education center for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Among the stars were Adam Levine, Selena Gomez, Brittany Spears, and David Guetta.

Bette Midler is making everyone bawl their damn eyes out with a video of her singing "Wind Beneath My Wings," to a terminally ill fan. The video is upside down but you're just gonna have to DEAL WITH IT, because you're about to feel an insane amount of feels. Flip your laptop, grab your tissues, grab your chocolate and get a dang therapist on speed dial, because you're going to need it:

28-year-old Anna Greenberg passed away, but not before she was met with the dream of hearing Midler sing to her.

David Beckham brought smiles to the faces of children when he visited them at Green Town Hospital in China. If I was sick, I'm sure Beckham's face would make me smile too. Heck, I'd probably shoot out of bed like Grandpa Joe in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

David Beckham: Footballer, underwear model, holistic cure for the blues.

I always like to have an out-of-the-box item on this list and I think I found one: It has to do with a star in The Mentalist and--keep an open mind here--the Kitty Bungalow Charm School For Wayward Cats. No, it's not a school of witchcraft, it's a charity to help, well, wayward cats. And Owen Yeoman, the Mentalist star, is helping! KBCSFWC (good lord) is putting on a CATberet! And Yeoman is hitting the stage! What a wonderful and odd thing to ever occur. Save the kitties y'all.

In less perplexing, yet just as great news, Alycia Keys is teaming up with Vh1 to empower women with AIDS. All she needs is a cape, if you pick up what I'm puttin down.

Lastly, (I know, I'm sad we're done too) what's better than a man in uniform? A man in a suit. Gary Sinese is donning war veterans in some serious swag rag as they enter the civilian workforce. Now, that's serving the folks that serve our country. I am IN to it, baby.

Well, my lovelies, it's that time again where I bid you adieu. Until next week, here's to the celebs that brought us tears of joy, smiles and laughter, and who restored our faith in humanity a little more. Cheers to THAT. Go forth and love one another. PEACE OUT.

** 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).
