Barton is an ambassador for Save the Children, as well as the “One Water” campaign which brings water to remote locations in Africa. Barton visited South Africa to help promote the work of Save the Children in September, 2008. She admitted that working with impoverished kids has really affected her, and said “I’m a pretty emotional person and I’m easily moved by things and getting to know those kids and seeing what their life was like and what they have to go through every day.”
She is on the board of the Lupus Research Committee in Los Angeles.
“It is good to draw attention to things that matter,” she told ITN. “There’s a lot of frivolous press out there, but it’s good to have a cause.”
