Laila supported the American Diabetes Association's Kiss Diabetes Goodbye Campaign.
Ali supports the Kids Cafe Program of Feeding America, and volunteered to cook and serve a meal for 50 children at the Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley Kids Cafe.
“When I heard that nearly 12 million children in the United States are hungry or at risk of going hungry, I knew this was a cause that needed attention,” said Ali. “Kids Cafe locations not only allow children a chance to get a hot meal, they also are places where they can build friendships and learn about living a healthy lifestyle. It’s wonderful that Uncle Ben’s has committed to opening more locations to help even more kids.”
Laila modeled an EDUN t-shirt in support of the ONE Campaign.
