When you’re blessed with fame and fortune it’s important to lend a hand to those in need — and that is exactly what Natalie Portman and Zoe Saldana are doing. The two actresses have teamed up with charitable microfinance organization FINCA International for the Lend A Hand campaign, helping impoverished women build their own businesses to support their families.
“I’m so proud to serve with FINCA in helping impoverished women become self-sustaining,” said Ambassador of Hope, Natalie Portman. “There is no better gift than giving women living in poverty the ability to provide for themselves and their families. When people donate to FINCA’s Lend A Hand campaign, they are allowing a mother to have peace of mind that her children are fed, safe, and being given a chance at a better life.”
Zoe Saldana said, “There are so many women in the world who are less fortunate, and struggling to provide for their families. FINCA is working tirelessly to help give these women a hand up, so that they are able to take care of their families and break free of poverty. Through this campaign, we hope to educate people about Lend A Hand, and show how a small loan can change the lives of so many women living in poverty — and better the lives of their children.”
Portman has been involved with FINCA for nearly a decade. Saldana got involved after seeing the devastation caused by the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
