The best way to understand parenthood is perhaps to contribute towards helping others. This is the belief that Nicole Richie instilled upon herself, choosing to assist struggling mothers rather than give gifts to her baby daughter. Giving to people who are not as fortunate as her in terms of income and stature is something commendable and for her efforts, she has joined the ranks of elite celebrities giving to the needy alongside with her boyfriend, Joel Madden.
A source tells the New York Daily News, “She’s hired some pretty high-powered consultants to advise her and put it all together. The website will be a registry, like for a bridal or shower registry, where low-income women list things they need for their babies. More well-off people will then go on and buy stuff for the children.”
Let us face it. In this world today, there are people who can afford to give their siblings everything that they want. But listening to the struggling community on what they need and apparently wanting to get some form of help close to a miracle for some is something you don’t see everyday.
Through this website that Richie is launching, it is an innovative way of furrhter identifying just what unfortunate mothers and children need to live close to normal these days. Surely this will go a long way and if all goes well, many other people can look forward to doing the same in the near future.
