"Saving Mr. Banks":Pamela's character development.
“I also thank Angelina for dressing in hijab while she visited not just Iraqi refugees but refugees in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not only did she look good in it, she showed respect and appreciation for their culture and religion and made sure that the focus was not on her looks but rather her mission.”

For those of you who are new here, Esther Earl was a nerdfighter who inspired much of The Fault in Our Stars and many projects in nerdfighteria, including Esther Day. Esther’s story, This Star Won’t Go Out, was published this year.
Esther’s family started a foundation in her honor, also called This Star Won’t Go Out, that provides direct financial support to families of children with cancer so that they can pay for gas and hotel stays and lost work and other costs associated with caring for sick children. The Earls are wonderful people who do great work, and you can donate to TSWGO here.

Esther Day is not about metaphors. It is not about gestures. Instead of mass produced greeting cards and baked goods, it calls for an uncommon honesty and bravery.
Esther Day became our favorite holiday in 2010, when John Green uploaded the first annual Esther Day video. Since then, we’ve celebrated on August 3rd with Nerdfighteria and looked forward to it in between.
This year, we’re going all out and hope you’ll do the same.
Today, we are officially launching a new campaign called the Esther Day Project.
Esther Day, at Esther Earl’s request, consists of one important action and a whole lot of heart. We are all challenged to say “I love you” to those they have trouble saying it to.
It sounds simple enough. In truth, it often comes as a challenge – being honest and unapologetic about love almost feels counterintuitive. We flee vulnerability.
This campaign - like Esther Day - is about changing that.
This is what it comes down to: love is awesome. Love is important. Love is what saved the wizarding world and, long before that, its residents. Fandoms become communities when we celebrate loving not just a book or a movie, but each other.
In only a couple of days, The Fault in Our Stars will make its box office debut. Since TFiOS was dedicated to and - in part - inspired by Esther, we can’t think of a better way to kick things off. While you wait for the movie, take a selfie or a picture with your friends - old and just-met-them-in-line alike - making the shape of a heart with your hands and tag them #EstherDay wherever you upload them.
Here are some examples:
From social media (#EstherDay) to IRL, please join us in celebrating love and celebrating each other on August 3rd.
We will be reblogging #EstherDay stuff throughout the coming weeks :)
