Teri’s new website, GetHatched.com, has been created with Disney to give women a place to be empowered.
“Women, in all of our multi-tasking, chore-juggling, diverse-life role-playing glory, are the force behind everything,” she writes. "We are the caregivers, the nurturers, the lovers, and teachers. We do the laundry, clean the house, feed the pets, drive the carpool, and as if that wasn’t enough of a job, we often bring home the bacon. (And then cook it, too!)
“We graciously take on these responsibilities because we have big hearts and deep wells of commitment. But the weight of all of this too often leaves us drained and craving support of our own. That’s why I wanted to create GetHatched as a resource, a go-to respite, a trustworthy support system for women.
“GetHatched is a place, a guide, to living the life you want to live. It’s about balancing what you have to do with what you want to do, and learning how to make those goals feel more one and the same. Ultimately, it’s a web destination ready to help you break out of your shell and discover what was there all along … one empowered chick!”
Edward Norton’s new site, Crowdrise.com, is about volunteering. It aims to encourage people to raise money for charity and have fun while doing it.
“We want to convert social networking from just being social into substantive, productive communication with action,” Norton told the Wall Street Journal. “Instead of telling the world what you’re eating for breakfast, you can use social networking to do something that’s meaningful.”
