I want to let you know that my friends, the Shapiros, have a very important issue that is near and dear to their heart…

Their son Brent struggled with drug and alcohol addiction starting at a young age. After months of sobriety, Brent decided to experiment with alcohol and ecstasy and passed away a day later.

It is their mission to keep us all informed about drugs and alcohol, and they are holding an eBay auction for the Brent Shapiro Foundation.

There are some amazing items on the auction block including floor seats to a Lakers game!

Bid here and make a difference!

    I think it’s crazy the majority of rich kids and Hollywood kids turn to drugs…is it due to excessive wealth? Nothing better to do? No good role models? Can’t help you make but wonder…you see kids in broke down neighborhoods and countries dying for the chance…ONE CHANCE at a shot at life and you have these kids “expiermenting” with drugs because they have nothing better to do. I’m not attacking this persons death…just made me think outloud!

    I agree with you Hmmmm about not appreciating what one has, except that drugs and alcohol issues have no race, denomination, or economic attachment. Its an issue effects people from all different backgrounds. Some people just dont know how to deal with pain and their own issues so they use an escape. Its the worse thing someone can do to themselves in my opinion, and yes I too look at it that way at times like goodness you have all of this stuff and this is what you choose to do with you life. But a persons pain cannot be measured. I just hope that people who are close to this kid and even people who aren’t can learn from these types of situations and stay away.

    Stilleto Vixen:

    I agree, I never said it had any denominations etc. but you just hear about it so much with “rich” people, it disguists me…and yes I know it’s just because we hear about it and it goes on in less fortunate neighborhoods as well and they just don’t get the attention but it just makes me sick BOTTOM LINE….THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE SO MUCH HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO WITH THEIR LIVES, THAN PARTY, GLAMOURIZE DRUGS AND MAKE S E X TAPES! THEN when they get into to much garbage and they want to change their image they post some pics or go on a tv show for a couple weeks to talk about their “donating causes to africa” etc. YOU ALL KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT. IM JUST NOT GOING TO WRITE AN ESSAY ON IT. AND IT’S MAINLY PEOPLE WHO COME WITH FAMILIES WHO HAVE NO REAL CULTURE JUST LOTS OF MONEY AND NO GUIDANCE…the mom and dad’s are too busy out making money so they can maintain their lifestyles while their most priceless possessions (their kids) literally slip away in front of their eyes and they are too busy to notice.
