Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are forward thinkers. And generous ones. The parents-to-be have recently established a new charity for needy single mothers. The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation will launch this Sunday at a glitzy Beverly Hills gala (aka Nicole’s baby shower, thrown by BFF Paris Hilton) and guest are asked to bring unwanted strollers and cribs for the charity in lieu of gifts for the happy couple.
And the rewards will be plentiful. According the foundation’s official statement, “All in-kind donors will be listed in all press releases and acknowledged on the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation website.”
In case you’re like me and not cool enough to be on the guest list, you can still help needy single mothers by visiting the evidently not-yet-created Richie Madden Children’s Foundation online registry. Designed to “inspire the purchases of items for moms and their families in need”, proceeds will benefit the LA Free Clinic and other participating clinics.
No word yet on how needy Nicole will be once she has her baby.
