Remember the ReThink Public Housing song contest?

EDIT: this was a tweet advertising the below promo for a new documentary from ReThink that Jewel will be narrating.  It's been pulled.  Not sure why, but it's been replaced with the below:

Slow work day, so I went down the rabbit hole to find out more about this ReThink charity, run by HAI Group.  It's not really any kind of charity, though it is nonprofit, they're just one of those "awareness raisers."

Guess what HAI group does?  They sell insurance to public housing tenants! :lol: It's their specialty! That's why they'd pay someone like Jewel to take part in this film and then subsequently give it away for free - more public housing means more public housing insurance policies for them! :lol:

Can't something please be a real charity somewhere? 

Anyway, none of this is really insidious or anything, just something I thought I'd look up for Friday funsies.

You're right.  Nothing insidious, just typical.   :indifferent:

There's a nice little blog post about how this film was made:

And you know what, at the end of the interview Jewel made a comment that in all the hundreds of interviews she’s done she’s never done one like this, that often times directors would just ask that she do her best to look into the camera—and that this was a much more pleasant experience.


With some nice behind the scenes pics of Jewel in Colorado:
