Danica McKellar is best known for roles on the television series The Wonder Years and The West Wing and for her candid, bestselling books that motivate girls in mathematics: Math Doesn’t Suck, Kiss My Math, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, and Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape.
Danica regularly supports the My Stuff Bags Foundation, donates books and toys to it, and even joins in the bag stuffing. Locally to Los Angeles, Danica supports further organizations dedicated to bringing dance, music and art to children in low-income neighborhoods. Less locally, Danica is involved with the Brigitte and Bobby Sherman Children’s Foundation which provides at risk children in Ghana with food, clothing, healthcare and education.
A major supporter of environmental causes, Danica’s dedication to the issue was recognized by Earthtrust CEO Don White many years ago, who invited her to speak in his place for the General Assembly at the United Nations in New York for a night of “Celebration and Contemplation” of the 1992 Earth Day Summit in Brazil. Danica even sang in the music video “Let It Be Earth Day Everyday.” In addition, she hosted one of the first live webcasts for the premiere of ECO’s (Earth Communication Office) award-winning PSAs.
Fellow actor Trevor Wright and Danica bagged groceries at Whole Foods market for a good cause: The Environmental Media Association. 10% of Whole Foods’ profits that day went to helping the environment.
