When you're in elementary school, learning how to write and research, you're consistently reminded that you need to cover the five W's ... the who, what, when, where and why. You might not be in elementary school any more, but that's still the best way to be sure that you've gotten all the basics taken care of. So, if you're interested in learning more about the VoiceYourself project put together by famous couple Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie, here's those basics:

Right now. And in your future. The couple formed the organization because of their concerns about the current state of the environment and the way that we as a community are treating the earth. The organization works to create change now and for our children and their children to come.
VoiceYourself is an online organization which can be found at http://www.voiceyourself.com/. The work being done by Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie through VoiceYourself reflects their support of worldwide attempts to change our ways.
Although Woody Harrelson is known for his work in film and on television, he is as much an activist as he is an actor. His relationship with his wife is one which has activism at the heart of it; they work together to create change in the world. The two of them have three daughters and want to see the world be a better place for them. VoiceYourself is one way in which they help to make this happen, working with others to raise awareness about issues of concern to them. They may be a famous couple but they are more than just a set of known names.
