Did you know that food banks are usually filled during the fall and winter but the shelves empty out in the spring and summer? People like to give around the Thanksgiving/Christmas season but tend to forget the less fortunate when the weather gets warmer. We’re not talking about everyone, of course. Some people, even celebrities, like to give back year round, whether through volunteering time or donating money and supplies. The following superstars use their fame and good fortune to help give back all through the year.
Reese Witherspoon and Stuart Weitzman Delovely
This Sunday, Reese Witherspoon walked in the Avon NYC Walk for Breast Cancer. The honorary chairperson of the Avon Foundation for Women, she spent time after the walk meeting and greeting breast cancer survivors and announced 9.1 million dollars in grants to 10 different New York area beneficiaries. Avon isn’t the only way she gives back though; the proceeds from her “Legally Blonde 2″ Barbie go to the Children’s Defense Fund and she has donated toys for less fortunate children to the “Toy Mountain” campaign. Reese looks lovely here in her beautifully embellished dress and simple silver sandals. If you want your feet to look sweet while your outfit shines try the Stuart Weitzman Delovely. These Stuart Weitzman sandals shine but won’t out-do your lovely frock of choice.
