Charitable celeb

August 31, 2003

Robert Strauss' fine article on the fate of reality TV "stars" ("As a Path to Fame, 'Reality' Bites," Aug. 24) missed a great story in the winner of CBS' "Survivor: Africa" -- Ethan Zohn. Ethan has used his celebrity status to tirelessly travel the country raising funds for various charities, and parlayed his winnings into helping create Grassroot Soccer, an organization fighting the AIDS epidemic in Africa by training superstar African soccer players in HIV/AIDS curriculum and sending them to cities and villages to teach middle-school children.
