Susan Sarandon, actress/activist  American Endometriosis Foundation

“[Endometriosis] compromises the lives of so many women, yet nobody talks about it.”

Freja Beha Erichsen, model Doctors Without Borders

“I admire the doctors, nurses, and volunteers who leave behind their workplaces and families to provide assistance to people in need in some of the most difficult situations in the world.”

Cyndi Lauper, singer/performer True Colors Fund

“As a mom, I could never imagine throwing my kid away for any reason, let alone their sexual orientation or gender identity. That is why the True Colors Fund created the Forty to None Project to ensure that no young person is ever forced out of their homes again because of being gay or transgender.”

Christy Turlington Burns, founder of Every Mother Counts/director and producer of No Woman, No Cry/model/mom Every Mother Counts

“The advocacy and mobilization campaign I founded in 2010, called Every Mother Counts, exists to increase education and support for maternal mortality reduction globally. EMC seeks to engage new audiences to better understand the challenges and the solutions while encouraging them to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide. I believe that together we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all moms.”

Heather Watts, dancer/educator  Musicorps

“I am joining with TENTHOUSANDTHINGS, amazing creative jewelry, and my dear friends David and Ron to ask for support for Musicorps, a revolutionary program to help injured war veterans adjust to postwar life though music training.”

Liya Kebede, model/activist   The Liya Kebede Foundation

“The Liya Kebede Foundation works to save mothers’ lives by helping to fund skilled doctors and midwives, access to family planning, ambulances, roads, and basic medical tools. This year we have successfully equipped a maternity center in the Hawassa region of Ethiopia and have helped with training the staff so that the women in the community can have access to quality care. The center started as a pilot program and aims to be an example for other maternity centers across the country.”

Miles Robbins, musician/student Hope North Uganda

“I chose this charity because I was moved by the stories of kids my age and younger being kidnapped and turned into soldiers.”

Olivier Theyskens, artistic director/fashion designer The Rainforest Foundation

“The preservation of primary forests and being able to evolve harmoniously with our environment are crucial for our future. I love nature and its richness, and therefore can only be profoundly supportive of Trudie [Styler]’s foundation for its efficient work in Central and South America.”

Padma Lakshmi, TV personality/author/designer  The Endometriosis Foundation of America

“I’m committed to helping millions of young women have a better life through this grassroots women’s health organization. We believe that a woman’s body affects her whole being, including her mind and her soul.”

Kristen Stewart, actress Children of the Night

Julianne Moore, actress/activist The Mayors Fund to Advance New York City

“I am supporting The Mayor’s Fund for New York City with this TENTHOUSANDTHINGS piece. One hundred percent of the money sent to the Mayor’s Fund goes to New Yorkers in need. This was a tough year for a lot of people in my city, and they could use some help.”
