Jennifer Aniston has opened up to Access Hollywood about her holiday in Mexico, and how she hopes it will help a charity close to her heart.
Her holiday was the perfect opportunity to lend a helping hand to Friends of El Faro, a charity that helps orphans in Mexico by providing food, shelter, education and a safe environment, with a long term goal to purchase land and build them a new home.
“It sort of made sense to sort of say ‘Hey, let’s help out Mexico. Let’s shout out to these kids in Tijuana at El Faro and you know, have a big…that’s sort of our birthday celebration this year.”
The star also took the opportunity to launch a new doll to raise money for the Casa Hogar Sion orphanage in Tijuana.
“I have to tell you when you drive up to this place you see these kids come running out and you hear a chorus of (sings), and they are just bright. These kids don’t feel like they are sitting there going, ’ Oh my life sucks, look at where I live.’ They have been given a lot of love and they’re getting educated, which is the most important thing for them is to have an education and have knowledge of what they can do.”
