Lindsay Lohan Saving Syrian Refugees With Energy Drinks Because That’s What They Really Need
Forgot food and water — let’s give people in need... energy drinks?
Lindsay Lohan wants to supply Syrian refugees with energy drinks and has already partnered with German company Mintanine to complete the task.
Yeah, we’re kind of confused, too.
The actress recently made a humanitarian visit to Turkey and spent time with refugees from the war-torn city of Aleppo, Syria. The trip inspired her to continue helping from home.
I met a wonderful aid worker (Azize) at The Refugee Camp in Antep. She saw that my eyes lit up when I told her that her headscarf is beautiful. She waved to me and said, come with me, I followed her and she gifted it to me. I was so moved and touched by this that I wanted to wear it in appreciation for all of the generosity and love I received from everyone at the camp. Thank you #Gaziantep #theworldisbiggerthan5 thank you @fatmasahin
"There's hardly food, water or anything, so at this point sending anything is helpful. This is all part of Lindsay's mission to help refugees,” a source told Page Six.
If there’s no food or water, why doesn’t she send food or water?
This honestly feels like something Cher in Clueless would do. Remember when she donated her skis to people who lost their homes in mudslides?
The energy drink supposedly doesn’t contain any synthetic flavors, so it’s #healthy.
"We do not use synthetic flavors or caffeine, no taurine, no aspartame, no inositol, but natural guarana,” the website said.
Though the Mean Girls star has made headlines recently because of her personal life, she is passionate about working with these young refugees.
"She spends time interacting with the kids. Listening to them, hearing their stories,” a source said.
“Lindsay has always been passionate about children, especially those impacted by circumstances outside their control. She loves the work."
In fact, the Hollywood star offered to volunteer at a hospital in Istanbul, which is staffed completely by Syrian doctors.
"The important thing is that a Hollywood star takes this matter seriously and bring it to the world stage,” said Abdurrahim Boynukalin, Turkey's youth and sports deputy minister.
We’re happy to see Lindsay using her celebrity for good, but we’re not sure energy drinks are the answer.
