On our fourth episode of The Other Half we are joined by Todd Krim from L.A. also known as Mr. Charity. Todd connects celebrities with causes that they care about to help charities promote their work. In this episode he tells us about coming to the realization that women are not treated equally, do not have the same rights and pay, which has turned him into a supporter. He talks about the power of using Hollywood as a voice and a platform for positive change and his work finding influencers and celebrities that have authentic connections to causes.
He tells us about his connection to his amazing mother, who was smart, creative, compassionate, outspoken, strong, and had great values and ethics. She was the one who inspired his life mantra, to “make the most of every day.” Todd tells us about designing the The World is in Your Hands Campaign with Justin Wu to educate and inspire people to take action now to combat climate change he launched with Antonio Banderas, Susan Sarandon, Rosario Dawson. Perhaps a great idea for what we can all do for gender equality. Everyone can be an actor of change and, through education and individual actions, we would create massive change. He also tells us that this is the time for men to stand up for women.
