What Inspired Aniston To Donate
View this post on Instagram
This week has been heartbreaking for so many reasons. We need to acknowledge that the racism and brutality in this country has been going on for a long time - and it’s NEVER been okay. As allies, who want equality and peace, it’s our responsibility to make noise, to demand justice, to educate ourselves on these issues, and more than anything, to spread love. How much more time are we willing to let pass without change? HOW MUCH MORE TIME? ⠀ ⠀ Text FLOYD to 55156 and sign the @colorofchange petition to have all four of the officers who killed #GeorgeFloyd arrested.

According to Access, a source close to Aniston reveals details about her contribution to the cause, saying:
"Like most people, Jen has been deeply affected by what is going on in America and the terrible injustice that people of color experience every day, She wanted to show her support, and has donated a big sum to the charity she felt resonated with her the most. The link is on her Instagram page, so her fans can also donate."
Just last week, Aniston shared a video of James Baldwin asking the public about how much time will be needed in order to make some type of progress. In the post, Aniston linked a petition where fans can sign regarding Color of Change.
Other Celebrities Join The Donation Train
Aniston is not the only one donating to BLM causes. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra gave donations to the ACLU and the Equal Justice Initiative. Soon after, Kanye West fronted up $2 million to the families of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery as well as putting together a college fund for George Floyd's daughter. Stars like Steve Carrell, Janelle Monae, Seth Rogen, Harry Styles, Ben Schwartz and Don Cheadle also have made donations surrounding bail postage for those who were brought to jail when protesting.
