Charlize Theron: I live for charity

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron says she will “do anything to help kids” and has spoken about her joy over collaborating with shoe brand Toms to raise money for her Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project charity.

The stunning 37-year-old South African actress and mother to adopted son Jackson is committed to charity.

The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project is dear to her heart and she invests a lot of time in it.

Charlize has worked with Blake Mycoskie, founder of popular shoe brand TOMS, for many years on philanthropic projects.

She has collaborated with TOMS most recently by designing shoes that will benefit the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project.

Charlize and Blake are devoted to aiding impoverished people around the world.

"We'll both do anything we can to help kids,” Charlize told Us Weekly.

The star regards the nonprofit as “her passion”.

The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project uses the funds it generates to provide education and medical resources to people suffering from HIV/AIDS in remote regions on the continent.

Charlize recognises that her and her team’s efforts are making a huge positive impact.

"It's incredible to see real change!" she gushed.

Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
