Victoria Beckham to become AIDS charity ambassador

Apr 8 2014, 3:22am CDT | by

Victoria Beckham is planning to become an ambassador for an AIDS charity.

The former Spice Girls singer will work with the United Nations as a goodwill ambassador for their UNAIDS campaign after being inspired by a recent trip to South Africa, where she met with children stricken by the deadly disease.

A friend of the star told The Sun newspaper: "She wants to give back by doing what she can."

The fashion designer - who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and two-year-old Harper with her spouse - visited Cape Town in February as part of the Born Free initiative, which tackles the issue of HIV being transmitted from mothers to their children.

Victoria - who turns 40 next week - and her husband are no strangers to charitable endeavors and last year donated thousands of pounds worth of designer clothes to their local Red Cross charity shop in west London, sparking lengthy queues as fans rushed to get their hands on a bargain.

And their generosity has been passed down to their children, with their eldest son opting to save his allowance in order to buy Thanksgiving gifts for homeless people.

A source previously said: ''Brooklyn told his mum and dad that he didn't want to receive presents for Thanksgiving this year. He said instead he'd like to donate them to people who need them more.

''Brooklyn asked one of the family bodyguards to take him to a Rite Aid store in Los Angeles so he could buy some first-aid kits to put in the charity parcels.''

Amal Clooney is back in London after her whirlwind trip to Greece earlier this week. You can see the photos of her in London here. Her travel-wear has greatly improved, right? I think she’s basing her newlywed look on one part Duchess Kate and one part Jackie Kennedy. Anyway, there are even more Amal stories, if you can believe it, so let’s get to it. First of all, Amal was just named the “Most Influential Woman In London” by The Evening Standard, a reasonably c ...

Did Angelina Jolie disrespect the new UN ambassadors, like Emma Watson?

Oct 13 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Does Angelina Jolie have humanitarian coattails? I’ve always believed she does. Back in 2001, Angelina became a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commission on Refugees. By the time she got that appointment, she had already made at least three overseas trips to refugee camps and had begun researching the role that would consume her for the rest of her life. Angelina always took her UN work very seriously, even when she was criticized for being a “cel ...
