Ordinary Celebrities

Ordinary Celebrities http://ordinarycelebrities.com should be live soon! Ordinary Celebrities was started by Christian Bowe. As a young man who loves to write and is looking to break through in International Development, he saw a major crack in the way our media covers.

As he was beginning to get to know some people who had developed very high level campaigns and big name non-profits, he wondered why don't these people ever get covered? Yes, us in International Development know about Craig Kielburger and Hugh Evans and just how extraordinary they are but unfortunately, many others do not. I wondered why I would see a Hollywood Divorce on the front page of "media outlets" instead of Hugh's campaign that could possibly eradicate extreme poverty in the next few years. There are many people like Craig and Hugh who are doing everything they can to seriously change this world and it's time we recognize these people that normally don't like to be recognized for their incredibly hard work to help others. Lets help these people out who dedicate their lives to helping complete strangers out and lets help ourselves out by being aware of what is really important in life.

Mission: We aim to cover those who really deserve to be covered by media outlets. After we put the spotlight on them to the public, we get the public to support and advocate on behalf of our celebrities missions. Through this approach, people can get involved with our celebrities campaigns and non-profits or even be inspired to start their own! This type of journalism and news coverage will aim to show people that an average person with a heart and passion can seriously change the "bad things" they don't like to see or hear about.

Christian Bowe - My time is near, very near

An update from our CEO. Stay tuned, world.

Last December, I created but never launched a news initiative called, Ordinary Celebrities. I had the site built, interviewed numerous ‘Ordinary Celebrities’ and started to get the word out about MY cause. Then I realized something, I wasn’t ready to be a 19 year old CEO yet, but...now I am!

One's a TED Senior fellow who's a photographer, writer and documentary filmmaker who works in the Middle East and North Africa, another is a co-founder of a student action movement at his university and a great humanitarian and another is using advanced technology for social improvement in Cambodia.
