According to The Mirror, Jennifer Aniston quietly made a donation to Color of Change following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police. Though the Friends actress didn’t share her donation to the largest online racial justice organization in the U.S. publicly, a source revealed Aniston donated $1million.
“Like most people, Jen has been deeply affected by what is going on in America and the terrible injustice that people of color experience every day,” the source explained. “She wanted to show her support, and has donated a big sum to the charity she felt resonated with her the most.”
Jennifer shared the Color of Change’s website link on her Instagram page and encouraged her followers to give what they can. Last week, Aniston addressed the nationwide protests and fight for racial equality in an Instagram post, as well. She posted a video of civil rights activist James Baldwin, asking “How much time do you want for your progress?”
This week has been heartbreaking for so many reasons. We need to acknowledge that the racism and brutality in this country has been going on for a long time – and it’s NEVER been okay. As allies, who want equality and peace, it’s our responsibility to make noise, to demand justice, to educate ourselves on these issues, and more than anything, to spread love. How much more time are we willing to let pass without change? HOW MUCH MORE TIME? ⠀
