Alyssa Milano is the Boss!


Last night the 2010 VH1 Do Something! Awards were held in Los Angeles. Among the celebrity nominees was the outstanding Alyssa Milano, who won the Do Something on Twitter award. Ashton Kutcher, Hugh Jackman, Edward Norton and BP Global PR were the other nominees in the Twitter category, but Alyssa's almost 1 million followers decided that she deserves to win the award!

Twitter Queen, as her followers (including me of course!) call her, has been using twitter for over a year now. Her tweets include interesting news from all over the world, funny moments from her every day life, tweets about her big love baseball, but also about charity work. In December 19, Alyssa gave up her birthday and asked her followers to donate to Charity: Water, a nonprofit working to supply clean water to those in need. She managed to raise $92,568, which means 18 communities, 4628 people have clean water in Ethiopia! This has not only been extremely generous and helpful to the people that actually need it, but also has inspired many to follow on her footsteps. A recent example is Petra Hall, who has started a campaign on Charity: Water for her 21st birthday! You can check it out and donate HERE.

  Alyssa thanks us on her twitter pagebut I want to thank her, because if it wasn't for her, we probably wouldn't even know about Charity: Water and nothing would have happened without her. Alyssa deserves that award and so much more as she has made a difference in the world by using twitter. She shows the good side of being a celebrity and uses her strong voice to help and inspire people. Personally, I feel like I know Alyssa more thanks to twitter. She has always been my favorite actress and I'm blessed to have the ability to communicate with her, thing I never thought I would be able to do and actually get replies back. Alyssa has great qualities, besides being gorgeous and talented, she also is sweet to everyone, kind, generous, funny and most importantly she is always real, which makes her the perfect role model.

Keep on being wonderful Alyssa!
