Now here’s a story that is very nice! Forgive me for the pun, but I just had to! Hopefully, you’ve already seen BORAT 2 and are aware of the “role” Jeanise Jones plays in it. Without giving too much away, she plays a woman who interacts with Sacha Baron Cohen’s character Borat as well as his daughter, Tutar (Maria Bakalova), and truly comes off as a good, sincere person. Unfortunately, Ms. Jones lost her job because of COVID complications, which led her church to start a GoFundMe stating the following:
“Please consider saying thank you to Jeanise with a tangible gift. She’s unemployed right now due to Covid. Previously, she worked on a job for 32 years! She’s faithful! Please consider giving a contribution to simply to say thank you to Jeanise for being ‘A moral compass and a light shining in darkness’ in this movie.”
Well, it seems that Sacha Baron Cohen was very thankful for Ms. Jones as well because he just donated $100,000 to the fund! All that money won’t go to Jones, but will be spread out to her Oklahoma City community on her behalf by the local Ebenezer Baptist Church. The funds have been earmarked for shelter, food and any other needs the community has. Wow-wee-wow, now THAT is awesome! What did you think of BORAT 2? Please, let us know in the comments below!
