“Walk of causes” talent at its best!
By Admin N : It was on the night of the bloggers meeting that we met possibly the two most awesome guys ever! We were just there minding our own business; trying to mingle with the crowd when two blonde dudes caught our attention, they had this aura around them and we knew we just had to talk to them (we were also intrigued by their looks and fashion choices, but yea whatever).
Matias and Ekvoll (like I call them) are two Norwegian actors breaking out in the Middle East, particularly the lovely city of Beirut; and they have this really cool blog where they post about pretty much everything, most interestingly, they have something they call “walk of causes”. The walk of causes is this super duper genius idea where Jorgen (ekvoll) and Matias plan on crossing our majestic land from the north to the south on foot, dedicating each daily walk for a cause. From machta hammoud they began the journey. Their first walk was dedicated to peace and health, sponsored by the UNIFIL but only half the money was used for production purposes whereas the other half was donated to the Red Cross for, and I quote: “to continue the work they do on improving the general health situation in the country.” And as they continue their journey down south, they walked for freedom of the press, for the refugees, the worried mothers, the nomads, the landmines, against discrimination, against poverty, against war, for all the homeless people, for the rights of domestic people, for all the orphans, for the recognition of the Armenian genocide, for Lebanon!
Along the way, they met interesting people, had their fair share of misfortune and raised awareness. But I think above all (and at the risk of opening a jar of blue cheese), they made us remember how stunning Lebanon is. But these guys are not all about walking, they do know how to party too (and stalk girls *cough* bloggers meeting video *cough*) and they do volunteer weekly at the Palestinian refugee camp! I believe they deserve a very high five, oh oh and some glitter too! And although Brofessional Review didn’t make it into their list of top 40 blog rankings (I don’t care if it was generated by some web system – I don’t understand how our aura of awesomeness was missed), we’d like to inform you that our heart is as big as our ego, and we’re going to let it go.
We honestly think you guys are super talented, proving that film making in specific can have highly interesting results even with the lack of professional means, Let’s grab a beer anytime soon (Oh it’s not private here, is it?!)
