We often hear of Angelina Jolie‘s philanthropic missions, however this mama is far from alone when it comes to giving back. Actresses Chandra Wilson, Alyson Hannigan, and Julie Bowen are all advocates for various charities, along with a long list of many others.
Working Mother has complied a list of celebrity moms who are making good of their celebrity status:
Mom-of-three Chandra Wilson: Joined the Downy Touch of Comfort program which delivers personalized, hand-made quilts to children staying in Children’s Miracle Network hospitals throughout the country. Of the program the Grey’s Anatomy star says, “As a mom, most of my life focuses on caring for my children and making sure they are safe and secure wherever they may be. It brings me a great deal of joy to be a part of this program and know that Downy is partnering with these wonderful organizations to help children feel more comforted and at ease in an unfamiliar and sometimes intimidating place.”
Mom-of-two Kristi Yamaguchi: Launched the Always Dream Foundation which partners with local organization across the country to help children in many different situations improve their lives and do what might not have been possible without this special kind of support. Of the organization Yamaguchi says, “I realize that the dreams and accomplishments I have fulfilled are a direct result of my family’s nurture and love. While I have been supported in the pursuit of my dreams, I realize that such opportunities do not exist for all children. For that reason, I felt the desire to create an organization whose sole purpose would be to inspire and embrace the hopes and dreams of children.”
