Aaron Paul’s Emmy Speech Crashed His Wife’s Kind Campaign Site

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press Room

As we’ve said before here at TVOvermind, we love Aaron Paul, and how could anyone not? Paul appears to be one of the nicest, classiest, and overall good guys in Hollywood today. And that’s why it was no surprise that his excellent Emmy speech last night, after he received the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (his third Emmy for that category), included loving comments about his wife, Lauren Parsekian (now Lauren Paul). However, Paul took it one step further last night and went into details about his wife’s charity work with the Kind Campaign, an honest and thoughtful mention that also probably led the to the crashing of the Kind Campaign website last night.

“My wife — my god, thank you for marrying me, thank you for dedicating your life to spread kindness around the world,” Paul said during his acceptance speech at the Emmys last night.  “We all appreciate it. If you guys don’t know what she does, look up Kind Campaign. Do yourself and your children a favor – Kind Campaign.”

You can visit the Kind Campaign website and get more information about it right here (although, at the time that I’m writing this article, the site is still down). The non-profit organization, which was founded in 2009 by Parsekian and Molly Mae Thompson, seeks to help and support young women who have suffered from both physical and mental abuse from their female peers and provides education about the negative effects of bullying on individuals.

Put simply, Aaron Paul says it best: the Kind Campaign’s goal is to “spread kindness.” And really, how can you get better than an organization whose main purpose is to just help people be kind to one another?

Check out Paul’s awesome speech and watch Parsekian discuss, in more detail, what the Kind Campaign does in the videos below.
