Solange Knowles



Favorite charity and why? Last year for the holidays I did a project, Music for Rain, in Rwanda, Cameroon and Uganda. After hearing about the urgency for clean water, instead of just donating the funds, we wanted to come up with a system that the community could maintain and work together to run. We went to Kigali and worked closely with water for people to set it all in the place. I truly believe that clean water is a right for humanity, not a one should be denied basic rights of equality.

Heidi Klum



Favorite charity and why? Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. I have done arts and crafts with the kids, taken them to a movie premiere and also participated in their annual 5k walk.The children there always amaze and inspire me.
