Drew Barrymore's Million Dollar Donation

Drew Barrymore's Million Dollar Donation

Ambassador Against Hunger Drew Barrymore is donating $1 million to the World Food Programme to help feed children in Africa.

The 33-year-old actress made the big announcement on Monday’s Oprah Winfrey Show. So far, Drew has taken two trips to Kenya to see the WFP’s work first hand.

“I have seen with my own eyes what a difference a simple cup of nutritious porridge can make in a child’s life,” Drew said. “It helps them learn, stay healthy and sets them on track for a bright future. I urge everyone — everywhere — to help WFP ‘Fill the Cup’ for hungry children, and make hunger history.”

WFP has a dream: to feed 10 million more hungry school children in Africa by Thanksgiving Day. Join Drew in helping feed millions of people at WFP.org.

    That’s a good girl right there. Putting her money where her mouth is. So many of her fellow celebs and the like have such vast fortunes and I bet most of them could very easily do the same as her. I want to see them all follow her lead.

    Drew Barrymore is an amazing person and has a big heart. I wish there were more people like her in Hollywood. She is the kind of person that people should look up to, a very good role model. Plus she’s so cute and adorable together with Justin Long!

    Thats great. I wish more of these celebs would follow suit and do some good especially these young girls, instead of flashing their crotch and breast and blowing their money on booze and drugs.

    That’s great from her to do this, other celebs should do the same rather than spend millions in car and other ******* useless things…

    Awesome!

    Goree Girls Says:

    She’s should be more like Jennifer Aniston and do it quietly. I wonder what scandal Drew is trying to cover up?

    Julie Says:

    And man, this world is full of cynical people. Not everyone does things for publicity. Some feel they’re blessed and want to give back. Drew went through a lot and I think she’s learned a lot too. And **** it, whatever, if anyone does it for publicity, do you really care if an actress gets more exposure because a million kids got FED? Cause if you do, I say you’re the *******.

    goree girl; Do you even bother to read the article? Can you even read…? It’s clearly that WFP is campaigning and Drew draws awareness to the cause!

    Wow! That’s fantastic of her. Good job. I’ve always been a fan, and now that she’s dating Justin, one of the cutest guys ever (in my opinion) and she’s getting into philanthropy- good for her!

    How about a cool million to causes here at home, like New Orleans? Always so much more glamorous to go elsewhere. God bless Brad Pitt.

    Nice gesture and that is like 30 bucks to me. Of course, Drew HAS to go on Oprah to brag about it.

    Rosie gave away 50 million dollars of her money from TROS. It was written into her contract. She never talks about it.

    =======================

    Who are you kidding? Your Aniston doesn’t give s**t. Charity is not her thing according to your idol. She spends her milions to tanning, spa, plastic surgery and spreading her legs showing her half of her cooch to the world to see, so STFU. Go Drew!!!
