It’s always tough to lose one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. This week, friends, family, and fans mourned the loss of comedian and actor, Robin Williams. Best known for roles in films such as Good Will Hunting, Aladdin, and Mrs. Doubtfire, Williams’ bright spirit and knack for making others laugh stood out as his identifier and touched those around him. According to investigator findings, Williams died as a result of suicide on August 11. Recent reports concluded that the actor had been struggling with depression, and an interview with his wife, Susan Schneider, revealed that he was battling the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. In the interview, Schneider hoped that her husband’s passing would allow “others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid." Williams is survived by his wife and three children from previous marriages: Zak Williams, Zelda Williams, and Cody Williams. The world will surely miss Williams’ warm heart and kind spirit. Remember, if you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). If we didn’t already love Beyonce for her fierce attitude, flawless style, and fabulous music, we sure love her now. The singer selected several schools along the East Coast to donate school supplies to this fall. Her charity, #BeyGOOD, will be handing out the supplies to underfunded districts in Baltimore, Charlotte, N.C., New York City, Washington D.C., and Newark. The supplies will include backpacks, pencils, notebooks, folders, and more back-to-school essentials. Beyonce has also paired up with StateBags to produce a special edition backpack to be donated to the schools, and later sold. The proceeds gathered from the sales of the #BeyGOOD State Bags will benefit the 2014 Back to School Program, aimed at benefiting at-risk children. If you want to get in on the action, visit the website for a special Back to School Bundle, featuring all kinds of Beyonce themed goodies to make your friends jealous.
