One landed in hot water in 2010 after the New York Post obtained tax documents showing the group spent more than half its income on activists’ salaries — and shared less than 2 percent with anti-poverty charities.
Celebrities involved in the new anti-famine PSA include George Clooney, Jessica Alba, Somali-born singer and poet K’naan, Fox News host and former Arkansas Gov.

Obama names Shakira to advisory panel
Colombian diva Shakira has been appointed by President Obama to his Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, along with a series of Democrat-affiliated advocates and boosters.
Shakira may have gotten her slot on the educational commission in part because Mr. Obama is ramping up his outreach to Hispanics by promoting Hispanic celebrities. The Hispanic vote is important to the campaign’s success, especially in swing states such as Florida.
In May, for example, Mr. Obama invited celebrities Eva Longoria and Emilio Estefan to a Cinco de Mayo event at the White House. Both are members of the National Museum of the American Latino Commission.
A week earlier, Mr. Obama met with Miss Longoria and other celebrities to talk about immigration. “We like to blame Obama for the inaction, but he can’t just disobey the law that’s written,” Miss Longoria told reporters as she left the White House.
Shakira has spent significantly to support education for poor children in Colombia. She lived in Colombia until she made her career as a singer in the 1990s.
Her hometown of Barranquilla has erected a 6-ton metal sculpture of her.
