You know how I am about stars doing good for others but making sure everyone notices they are doing it. I'm happy they are bringing attention to the cause, but also hate how they are only doing it to further their career and not out of a sense of doing it just to do it. Julia Stiles got a little blurb in the NY Daily News for something she did this year, but I think it needs to be said that not only does Julia do this at Christmas, she does it every three or four months.
Every piece of clothing that Julia gets free, and most of the ones she doesn't ends up at The Bottomless Closet. This is truly one of the great organizations. What they do is to provide business attire for women who cannot afford to buy it. A woman who has been homeless and just started her first job can't go out and buy new clothes or even used clothes for her new job. What Bottomless Closet does is provide business attire to women who cannot afford it and hopes when they succeed they will return the favor.
Obviously Julia gets lots of clothes that are useful to the program. She also realizes that she is not the same size as many of the women in the program and therefore makes a conscious effort to get additional sizes from the companies that provide her free clothes. When she busy her own clothes, she often buys another exact set to give away and is very good also at shaming stores into giving her extra clothes for the program.
Julia doesn't ask for any credit for doing this and doesn't seek attention for her cause. She does it because she cares about doing good, just to do good.
