Think about “Philanthrophy” – you remember Billionaires from all over the World doing their charity. Olivia Wilde proves you cannot be rich to help and do your best. Perhaps you can´t save all the world, but if you save one person, you´ll be saving this Person´s World.
“Although many of us know Olivia Wilde for movies that she has starred in including People Like Us, In Time, Cowboys and Aliens and Tron: The Legacy, recently, she has received media press for being inspiring more than entertaining. She is being recognized as being one of the founders of what is Haiti’s first free high school. As the child of two journalists, Wilde’s connection with Haiti began in her childhood when she took a trip with them there to visit. So, when the devastating earthquake hit back in 2010, she was moved to return back to Haiti to assist with its clean up and restoration efforts.”
“The wonderful thing about this “free school” is that it is funded by the financial pledges of many individuals who are compassionate about the restoration about Haiti. Some of the donations have come from other well-known celebrities including Russell Crowe, Daniel Craig, Barbra Strisand and Penelope Cruz are among the bold-faced names that helped to make the proposal a reality, the magazine reports.Each of the stars pledged to donate a whopping $70,000 a year to help sustain the project.”
“We started so small,” Wilde said, “and this is such a grand gesture.”
In October, 1,200 students are set to enroll in the school, which was built by Haitians in just two months’ time. And with the exciting news, Wilde is hoping to inspire young people to get involved as well.
“I’m really excited about the next generation,” she said. “Philanthrophy is no longer just for the rich.”
