Katie Couric, Julianna Margulies & Julianne Moore Cover 'Ladies' Home Journal' March 2010
The stars, who are featured in an inside story called “Ladies Who Give Back,” spoke about the causes near and dear to them. Check it:
Katie, on her passion for fighting colon cancer: “I’ve heard every colonscopy joke there is. People might feel like, ‘Shut up already. Here she is, talking about colons again.’ But I think the benefits far outweigh the negatives.”
Julianna, on using her fame for a good cause to fight Alzheimer’s: “As a celebrity, it’s my responsibility to give a voice to a cause. That’s what I can do to help. But when I meet the doctors who’ve been working with Project A.L.S. and learn about their research, I feel so inadequate. They’re the ones who are doing amazing things.”
Julianne, on a great giving back moment:“Last summer Mark Shriver [managing director of Save The Children's U.S. programs] and I went to Washington and lobbied Congress for a Kids Desk at FEMA. FEMA had nothing earmarked for children. Animals? Yes. Children? No. We asked Congress to allocate special provisions for children, and they said yes. That was very exciting.”
