Jonah Hill - Jonah Hill Calls On Fans To Donate To Charity For His Birthday
Comedian Jonah Hill is calling on fans to help celebrate his birthday this week (20Dec11) by donating just $10 (£6.25) to the United Nations Foundation's anti-malaria campaign, Nothing But Nets.
The Moneyball star has thrown his support behind the charity drive to provide life-saving bed nets to refugees in Africa, where malaria is the number one cause of death among children under five.
And Hill, who turned 28 on Tuesday (20Dec11), is urging devotees to dig deep and give what they can to benefit the cause.
He says, "I'm excited to ask people to be extra nice to me and celebrate with friends. I'm really excited to peer pressure all my friends into buying me a gift. I want everyone to dig deep into their pockets and cough up $10. $10 sends a bed net to kids in Africa. I hate mosquitoes. I hate malaria more. I love birthdays and I love anyone who donates $10 for my birthday. If you donate $30 I will love you three times as much."
