I am a die-hard Law and Order: SVU fan. Olivia Benson, played by the talented and beautiful Mariska Hargitay, is just about the most badass detective on TV. But Hargitay actually supports special victims in her real life, too.

“I started the Joyful Heart Foundation in 2002 to help survivors of sexual assault heal their minds, bodies and spirits and reclaim their lives. Playing Detective Olivia Benson on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit opened my eyes to the epidemic of sexual assault in this country. It wasn’t just in the scripts for the show, but in the many emails I received from viewers disclosing their stories of sexual assault for the first time,” says Hargitay of the organization, of which she is president and founder.

The Joyful Heart Foundation, along with the Christopher and Dana Reeves Foundation, the Rainforest Foundation, and the Women’s Cancer Research Fund, are receiving benefits from select Philosophy products, many with plays on the names of these charities (such as “Joyful Heart Handle” and “Shower for the Cure”).
