GIVING BACK

I’m grateful that my life has taught me and allowed me, to be able to give and help for many charities.

SAVE THE NATIVE FOREST
SAVE THE NATIVE FOREST

I became involved with the organization Save The Native Forest after I returned from Ecuador in 2007. While there, I was fortunate to spend time with the Houarani tribe – a beautiful, ancient people. The threat to their homeland and the delicate ecosystem of the rainforest is real. Mechanized farming, logging, oil and gas corporations continue to purchase land at an alarming rate. Save The Native Forest counters this by saving the rainforest in the most efficient and direct way: buying tracts of land and preserving the forest as it should be – untouched. W

CRADLE TO CRADLE
CRADLE TO CRADLE

I feel lucky  to be able to be involved and learn from the people at CradletoCradle. From the moment we met, I was inspired by their story and what they are doing and achieving. Their mission to make products better and have a positive impact on our society, economy and planet, is one I am proud to be a part of.

SOLVING KIDS CANCER

Giving back is so important for me, I have always loved the work I do with different charitable organizations. I’m so proud to work with Solving Kid’s Cancer whose efforts, finds, funds, and manages novel, high-impact clinical research to improve survival of the deadliest childhood cancers.

MAKE A WISH
MAKE A WISH

Over the years I have been involved in many children’s causes. I think being a mother made me even more conscious to what’s happening to children around the world – from violence to sickness. Charities like Make A Wish and The Starlight Children’s Foundation deal with the misfortunes that are being unjustly forced upon children around the world, and I have either organized shoots, or raised proceeds for, these organizations.

DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS
DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS

I decided to take part in the supermodel edition of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire.” It was fantastic! A great group of girls were invited onto the show: Eva Herzigova, Carol Alt, Heidi Klum, Veronica Webb, Bridget Hall, Kim Alexis, Molly Sims, and me. I won $250,000, and donated half of my winnings to Doctors Without Borders.

YOUTH AIDS
YOUTH AIDS

YouthAIDS is an HIV/AIDS fundraising and awareness campaign of PSI, targeting young people ages 15-24. The campaign began in 2001 with a small group of partners that were willing to take a chance, and make a difference. Their commitment gave YouthAIDS the platform to save lives. It is because of them – corporations, celebrities, the media, and individuals – that we have leveraged the power of media, pop culture, music, theater, and sports, to stop the spread of HIV and AIDS. I am truly honored to join the YouthAIDS leadership circle and have hosted events to raise awareness for the organization.
