Oscar-nominated actress Samantha Morton is backing a campaign to help disenchanted workers give something back through charity work.
The World of Difference campaign, an initiative from the Vodafone Group Foundation, will give four workers the chance to give up their job for a year to work for a charity of their choice and be paid up to £25,000 (US$50,000).
“The World of Difference project gives people the opportunity to work with their own favorite charity – I’ve seen first hand what a difference an extra pair of hands can make,” said the 31-year-old actress.
Morton also supports A National Voice, a charity established for young people who are in or leaving care.
“I feel really passionate about helping children and young people who are in the care system,” she said. “I support A National Voice as it aims to make positive changes to the Care System in the UK and gives a voice to those being cared for.”
