You might guess that Bette Midler is most proud of her forty year career, numerous awards, or general level of stardom, but you’d be way wrong! Midler recently spoke to Britain’s Hello! magazine and gave readers an inside look at what makes her truly proud.

“I have two things (I’m proud of in life). I’m very proud of my daughter. I’m also very proud of the New York Restoration Project, ” said Midler. “I’m very proud of the fact I’ve saved 55 community gardens and I’m on my way to saving many, many more,” said Midler. “I’ve built parks and provided children with environmental education. And I’m proud of the fact I’ve received recognition for it.

“You receive all of these awards but you’re never really sure if it was political or if you really earned it. But this I know I earned because I’m at the forefront of this organization and this particular parks and gardens movement is in my town, New York.”

The New York Restoration Project was started by Bette in 1995 and works to restore, revitalize, and develop under-resourced parks and community gardens throughout the city’s five boroughs. In partnership with the City of New York, the organization is also leading MillionTreesNYC – an initiative to plant and care for one million new trees throughout New York City’s five boroughs by 2017.
