The 25-year-old entertainer spent the earlier part of her Saturday (September 23) in New York City as she attended the Global Citizen Festival. There, she was named Global Citizen Mental Health Ambassador. “I am so proud to partner with Global Citizen as their official ambassador for Mental Health with focus on vulnerable communities around the world,” Demi said of her new position. “With their support and our combined platforms, I will be able to further my work around some of the issues I deeply care about as it relates to mental health and well-being around the world.” That night, Demi flew to Las Vegas for a surprise performance of her hit song “Sorry Not Sorry” during DJ Khaled‘s closing set at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival. Click inside for 20+ photos of Demi’s busy day, and to read her full letter on her Global Citizen ambassadorship… “I am so proud to partner with Global Citizen as their official ambassador for Mental Health with focus on vulnerable communities around the world. With their support and our combined platforms, I will be able to further my work around some of the issues I deeply care about as it relates to mental health and well-being around the world. In October 2016, I, along with my friend and partner Mike Bayer, went to Kurdistan to visit one of the biggest refugee camps in the world. The experience of meeting with some of the displaced families, and my encounter with a very young girl who told me all she wants is to just be happy (what a simple and yet completely out of reach wish), will stay with me for the rest of my life. As a first step in my partnership with Global Citizen, over the past year we have worked to identify the right partner who will help us bring a bit of a solace and peace to some of the displaced children in Iraq. We will be bringing Save the Children’s HEART program (which offers healing, psychologial support, and basic education through the arts) there this year. The trauma that displaced families and children all around the world feel from losing not only their homes, but also some of the people closest to them, is unfathomable and has long lasting impacts. My hope is that this program can bring at bit of comfort to those who need the most. This isn’t about politics or race or religion. It’s simply about humanity and protecting one another.”.....»»

Related: THIS Review Of A Vagina Slapping Sex Toy Is A Comedic Climax! The mother tells Global News: "I went to the garden for something and I saw this long weed. For some reason, I picked it up and it must have caught on something and pulled [the ring] off." As much as she looked, she was unable to find her precious ring and "cried for days." A few weeks later, the clever woman decided to buy a look-a-like so her husband wouldn't notice her missing band. A few weeks after losing her engagement ring, Mary bought herself this one, much smaller, to replace it. #Camrose pic.twitter.com/sg9WN4y1Pb — Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017 13 years later, when her son's wife was picking veggies from the garden (as they now live on the property), she stumbled upon something unusual. Brian Grams explains: "My wife was digging carrots for supper, and I guess she came up with a carrot that had something on it." That's when they discovered Mary's original engagement ring wrapped around a carrot! Luckily, the ring still fits after all these years. Mary, 84, says she didn't know if they were kidding or not, but when her granddaughter brought the carrot over - she knew: "It's mine!" #yeg pic.twitter.com/Ft7IMUeSMR — Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017 Nowadays, Miz Grams is more careful about her prized jewelry, and takes precaution whenever she leaves her house.

Although her husband of 60 years died five years ago, Mary insists Norman would laugh at the entire situation! Such a cute story! [Image via Global News.].....»»
