Hilary Duff

Helps Out in New Orleans

8/29/2006 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

082906-hilary-duffAs the nation marks the first anniversary of the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, politicians, news crews and celebrities descend upon New Orleans. One of those celebrities is Hilary Duff.

Duff has worked with USA Harvest for two years. The organization likes to say that they aren't fundraisers, they are food-raisers. They help service over 5,400 agencies nationwide and have provided 11.6 billion pounds of food to those deserving organizations.

In the past year, Hilary has donated more than 2.5 million meals to hurricane victims in the south through USA Harvest.

For Hilary, lending her name and shining a light on a cause is the least she can do: "When you are a celebrity, and you have a voice that people pay attention to or a name that people watch and read about, it's the perfect opportunity to spread the word and get people motivated and to remember to help other people and give back."

What a nice young lady! (How nice to be able to refer to one of the current young hollywood women as a "Lady"). To those much is given, much is expected...I shall make a personal note. Perhaps some of those out there in young Hollywood will follow suit?

Hillary is a smart cookie - avoided the big social/catfight/overexposure scene but yet still landed a cute rocker and works for good causes. Lindsey will only wish she had done the same thing when she is at the bottom just like Tara is now.

What, you mean there's a young celebrity female who's not sitting on the lap of some fat-ass spoiled little rich boy cackling about the word "firecrotch?" She's actually HELPING in the world!!????

I think I'm gettin' the vapors!

GO HILARY!

This is a young lady who should be idolized. She's actually doing something to benefit others. Hopefully some of Hollywoods other young starlets will take notice. Good for you Hilary. At least we know there are still some good hearts in Hollywood.

She's a really good youngster and to have any voice nowadays anywhere for those who perished due to the "irresponsibilites" of the feds, has my vote for a miracleworker in progress!!!
