Meryl Streep Turns Selfie Into Something Awesome

Illustration for article titled Meryl Streep Turns Selfie Into Something Awesome

Remember this image of Meryl Streep and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at the State Department Dinner for the Kennedy Center Honors gala? Well, the picture Streep took with her iPhone isn't just sitting in her photostream doing nothing. Streep has listed the image on Shutter to Think. From the site:

Created in 2012, SHUTTER TO THINK ( www.shuttertothink.org ) is a project designed to use photography as a way to support programs for girls around the world. Through the sale of personal photographs taken by well-known actors, writers, directors, and musicians, SHUTTER TO THINK is able to help fund programs with globally recognized organizations that are focused on providing opportunities to girls.

The photograph is priced at $200, and you can choose from eight different charities, incluing Girl Up, GEMS and CARE. In the collection are also photos taken by Anthony Edwards, Eva Mendes, Jhumpa Lahiri, Steve Buscemi and Julie Taymor — among others. Makes a great gift this time of year.

I'm finally (finally!) about to start earning enough to have some spare income, and I would like to start giving some money to charity, in particular to support education for girls and women in developing countries. Do any Jezzies have any advice on how to check whether a charity is reputable/effective or not? I'm interested in giving to Afghan Connection (www.afghanconnection.org), but obviously I don't want the money to go to waste.
