Celebrities have a way of making people come together for a cause. When one tweets or mentions something on another social media site, the buzz about the cause usually grows. Thinking about Beth Chapman and Lindsey Shaw doing something together may seem odd to some, but for others it is barely noticeable. Chapman starred on “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and Shaw can be seen on the ABC Family mega-hit, “Pretty Little Liars.” According to a Jan. 3 report from US News, these women are uniting to support the passing of “Kari’s Law.” Both women have tweeted about it and subsequently garnered attention to a father’s effort to change the laws.
“Kari’s Law” is in the early stages right now. It began when Kari Hunt was going to meet her estranged husband at a Baymont Inn located in Texas. She had her three children with her ranging in ages from nine to three. Hunt was brutally murdered by her estranged husband in the bathroom of the room while the children were in the bedroom area. The oldest child, a daughter, tried repeatedly to dial 911 from the hotel phone but her call never got out. This happened because in order to get an outside line, the young girl would have had to dial “9” first. Kari Hunt’s father decided to start a petition on Change.org to get the attention of a Texas Representative and work to get the way 911 is dialed changed. The petition has nearly 350,000 signatures from all over the United States. Both Beth Chapman and Lindsey Shaw have tweeted the link to their followers.
Hank Hunt will move mountains to make sure “Kari’s Law” is a reality. While these three young children have lost their mother, they are left with a legacy that her namesake may be able to save at least one life and presumably many more.
