I Love Ansel Elgort, Part Two

Dreamy and a do-gooder!

Ansel Elgort recently celebrated his twenty-first birthday (at least it’s legal to have a crush on him. Appropriate? That’s another topic entirely.) and in lieu of gifts, he decided to start a Prizeo campaign. Prizeo is like Kickstarter for celebrities with a cause; donate and you can win certain prizes like autographed photos, t-shirts, and “once-in-a-lifetime experiences.” In our modern, celebrity-obsessed society, this is a great use of social media, providing an easy platform for celebrities to pimp themselves out for a charity (and I mean that with the utmost respect. For once, no sarcasm-really!)  Ansel has chosen the Thirst Project, which works to build freshwater wells in communities without access to clean drinking water.

So of course, I totally donated. Because Oriental Lady strongly believes that everyone worldwide should be able to enjoy a cup of hot, clean water. And the shot at winning lunch with Ansel is okay too, I guess.

I donated at the “Dauntless” level, which earns me a t-shirt, ten entries into the “Lunch with Ansel” drawing and an email from Ansel. Check it out here if you’d like to donate too! If you are donating purely to provide others with clean drinking water and don’t want to eat lunch with an adorable, talented young man who thinks about things other than himself, please feel free to donate your contest entries to me (or pretty much any preteen/teenage girl). Now that he’s twenty-one, I’d love to buy him a drink. ;)

I Love Ansel Elgort

Matt Lauer just interviewed Ansel Elgort on the “Today” show. He is adorable and I have a mini-crush on him, even though I am old enough that it would be way more appropriate to have a crush on Matt Lauer. I am not ashamed. If you haven’t seen him as Augustus Waters in “The Fault in Our Stars,” you should indulge your inner teen and do so (I am a physician, so I watched it as research on cancer patients. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) I recently found out he is the son of Arthur Elgort, the famed fashion photographer. I stared at his photos in Vogue as a teenager, daydreaming about how cool it would be to be a model (bummer that there were no high-fashion Asian models back then and I also stopped growing at 5’7″. Again, that is my story and I’m sticking to it. I wanted to be a model so Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran might want to date me.) In summary, if you read this, Ansel Elgort: you are the cutest thing ever.
