Somalia is currently suffering through a terrible famine, where millions of people are starving to death as a result of the drought they're facing. Including the death of a 6 year old girl, who died of dehydration while she and her mother walked miles in search of water.
Jerome Jarre heard about this, and decided to do something about it. After doing some research, Jerome decided to send out this tweet about it, which ultimately started it all:

Jerome posted this as an update and a response to everyone’s kindness, and his happiness and adorable-ness made this even more amazing:
