Sweetie of the Day - December 23rd, 2013

Today’s sweetie is the amazing Sir Patrick Stewart, well-known for Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Professor Xavier in X-Men, and various stage roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In recent years, he has also delved into charity and activist work.

Stewart has worked with various charitable organisations like Amnesty Intertional, Refuge, and Combat Stress, as well as giving his name to a scholarship at the University of Huddersfield. He is well-known for using his role in the public eye in order to bring attention to discussions around domestic violence, feminism, and PTSD.

For using his platform as, as he puts it, an “old white man” to advocate for awareness and better resources for human beings everywhere, Sir Patrick Stewart is our sweetie of the day.

Follow Stewart at his twitter and see his video with Amnesty International here.
