Hilary was one of the charter members of Kids With A Cause in 1999 and continues to offer her dedication and support to this worthwhile organization whenever she can. Her sister, Haylie, is also one of the charter members and is the Spokesperson for 2003.
Kids With A Cause (www.kidswithacause.org) is a non-profit organization that lends a helping hand to the children of the world who, through no fault of their own, suffer from poverty, hunger, sickness, lack of education, abandonment, neglect and/or abuse.
Hilary donates her time through a variety of events with the charity. She visits children in hospitals to help make their day a little brighter. She escorts disadvantaged youth to theme parks and shares in the fun and the thrill of the rides. Spending time with less fortunate children is very important to Hilary and she also supports the efforts of Kids With A Cause through special fundraising projects.
Her most recent projects in support of Kids With A Cause include “Send a Greeting by Phone” (www.dtelegrams.com) where you can send greetings from Hilary for those special occasions and special friends and t-shirts with original art by Hilary (www.angelwear.com). There will also be collectible items of Hilary’s soon on eBay to offer additional support towards her charitable interests.
We hope that you, too, will offer your support to children in need.
Return to Freedom is
proud to welcome Hilary Duff
as its new Youth Ambassador!
In July of 2003, Hilary Duff, came to visit famed wild horse sanctuary Return to Freedom and met Spirit the horse that inspired the Dreamworks animated film. Upon meeting him, Hilary became a little star struck herself. “I had to catch my breath when I saw him,” she said. “Oh my God, he’s like stunning.”
During her visit Return to Freedom, Hilary met with its founder, Neda DeMayo, and learned about the organization and how it rescues wild horses. When Neda asked Hilary to be Return to Freedom’s official Youth Ambassador, Hilary instantly agreed.
“I’m so honored,” Hilary said. “It’s so important to raise the awareness of other kids and that’s the best part of being in the position I’m in. I think it’s really important to give back to your community and it makes you feel so good to get involved with a charity. I look up to people who are involved with organizations that help people and animals.
“So when I first heard about Return to Freedom, and how civilization is closing in on the wild mustangs, I knew that I wanted to get involved with this cause. It is so great that the mustangs have the American Wild Horse Sanctuary at Return to Freedom to roam free on and to be wild. If their land and freedom is lost these wild horses are in real danger of becoming extinct and we must not let that happen. I hope that Return to Freedom will be able to get more land so that they can rescue and bring more horses to the sanctuary.”
