Orlando Bloom is a new UNICEF Ambassador
After two years since Pirates of The Caribbean actor Orlando Bloom first expressed his desire to support UNICEF efforts in proving a better life for children worldwide, the 32 year old actor has been named UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, AP reported.
Recognizing his commitment to the children’s rights, the organization said their new ambassador would focus on raising awareness of the global organization and advocating for needy children around the world.
I look forward to working with UNICEF as they continue to make the world a better place for children,” Orlando said in his statement. “UNICEF doesn’t just deliver humanitarian aid, which is what they are known for all over the world. They also educate and provide tools which help women and children face challenges specific to their own lives. I responded to how UNICEF works as much as I did to the work itself. I look forward to learning more and to supporting UNICEF any way I can.”
Since 2007 Bloom has already visited Nepal, Russia, and Sarajevo as a part of UNICEF team. And the first thing he’ll do as an Ambassador will be the PSA to mark the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, JustJared.com revealed.
Orlando Bloom joins supermodel Gisele Bundchen and teen idol Selena Gomez as the newly appointed UNICEF Ambassadors.
Orlando’s long-term girlfriend and Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr has also gone into do-gooding by taking part in her first ever charity effort launched by her mom Therese. She will visit the inaugural Anatta Community Rally, BBQ & Concert, a fundraiser for Kids Helpline on October 18, 2009 in Rocklea, Australia.
It’s the first time Miranda has done something for the charity and it’s a cause she’s extremely passionate about,” an event spokeswoman said.
