VAMPIRE DIARIES STAR DESIGNS TEE FOR KENYAN CHARITY
Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev has designed a t-shirt to raise funds to feed children in Kenya. Sporting the tee that reads "Hunger Bites," Nina told Hollywood Life, the proceeds from the t-shirt will help feed 6,500 children at a school in Kenya.
"No one should go hungry because, quite frankly, hunger bites," Nina said, "And I'm not just saying that because I'm on a vampire show."
The 22-year-old who is an ambassador for Free The Children, has been to Kenya before in 2008 together with her co stars in the TV show Degrassi to build a school in Oloomirani in Narok.
Free The Children is the world's largest network of children helping children through education, with more than one million youth involved in our innovative education and development programs in 45 countries.
Founded in 1995 by international child rights activist Craig Kielburger, we are a charity and educational partner that believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change.
The organization has received the World's Children's Prize for the Rights of the Child (also known as the Children's Nobel Prize), the Human Rights Award from the World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations, and has formed successful partnerships with leading school boards and Oprah's Angel Network.
