ALYSSA MILANO ENJOYS AN EVENING OF COCKTAILS AND SHOPPING
Alyssa Milano showed off her pregnancy glow as she arrived at the Evening of Cocktails and Shopping event at Bad Robot in Santa Monica, CA today (April 20).
The expectant actress was joined by fellow mom-to-be Selma Blair as she enjoyed an evening of charity benefitting the Children’s Defense Fund, an American child advocacy and research group, founded in 1973 by Marian Wright Edelman.
Meanwhile Alyssa has kicked off her new campaign against tropical disease.
The 38-year-old star has joined forces with the website Tonic.com to raise $75,000 to help the victims of Lymphatic Filariasis, which is also known as elephantiasis.
The disease is often found in tropical climates where humans can catch it through a mosquito’s bite.
Alyssa recently found out about the project in India that helps sufferers of LF and helps people learn how to look after themselves and others.
Writing on Tonic.com, she said: ‘To keep the program alive it needs a major funding boost of $75,000. When you think about it, $75,000 isn’t very expensive – only about $3.25 per person, per year – a small amount of money can make a huge impact. That’s why, all this week, I’ve teamed up with Tonic, and the Global Network to ask all my fans to band together and contribute to this, the worthiest and most cost-effective cause we can imagine.”
