Nicole Richie and boyfriend Joel Madden have started their own charity — The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation — to benefit mothers in need. Apparently, Richie’s baby shower is this Sunday and she’s asked all attendees to give cribs, strollers, and stuffed animals to the foundation in the place of personal gifts. From the release,
“Nicole would like to invite friends, family and fans across America to participate in the moms-in-need program and highly publicized baby shower. The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation will create and promote an online registry to inspire the purchases of items for moms and their families in need. Anyone in the country will be able buy from the registry on her behalf for the clinic. The registry link will live on the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation website for at least six months and will be updated regularly based on the needs of the LA Free Clinic and other participating clinics.”
Said Richie of her decision to form the foundation, “I want my child to look up to me and be proud of me.” We can’t argue with that. Nice work.
Now if only she could erase those Simple Life episodes…
