This Week's Inspirational Pop Culture Moments

This week's inspiring pop culture events came in all shapes and sizes. A charitable little boy made a big Hollywood deal, the First Lady received a Kids' Choice Award, and Demi and Ashton got tough on child slavery. Here are our favorite inspirational pop culture moments of the week.

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher Team Up to End Haitian Child Slavery
Demi Moore's had a busy week what with her oh-so-tacky Twitter war with Kim Kardashian. Luckily, she also used her pop culture powers for good, not evil. Demi and her hubby Ashton Kutcher are teaming up to address the issue of childhood slavery in Haiti.

Their DNA Foundation is raising awareness of "restavec" a local practice meaning "one who stays with" and in which one out of ten kids is sold into other Haitian homes. The Hollywood heavy hitters are using their high profiles to urge government officials and non-profits immersed in the rebuilding process to push to make these practices illegal. A very worthy use of celebrity, indeed.
