Is there anything in this world better than Aaron Paul? The man seems to be constantly bubbling over with gratitude. And last night at the Emmys, he wasn’t just grateful for the win, or for the Breaking Bad experience, but (as we’ve seen before) for his wife, Lauren Parsekian. And I’d bet good money that Parsekian is pretty grateful herself right now. During his Best Actor acceptance speech, Aaron dropped a shout-out (do kids still say “shout-out”? I’m going with it) to her nonprofit, the Kind Campaign:
My wife — my god, thank you for marrying me, thank you for dedicating your life to spread kindness around the world. We all appreciate it. If you guys don’t know what she does, look up Kind Campaign. Do yourself and your children a favor - Kind Campaign.
Well, that’s all it took to flood the Kind Campaign website and bring the whole thing crashing down into a pile of internal server errors. The site (kindcampaign.com) should be back up by now, and I highly suggest you go check it out. (So does Jesse Pinkman, if my opinion isn’t enough.) The organization works to combat girl-on-girl bullying, and is a really spectacular group. Check out this video of the president, Mrs. Pinkman herself, talking about the cause:
