Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have started their own charity, called The Richie Madden Children's Foundation.
Nicole Richie and fiance Joel Madden, needless to say, are excited about becoming parents for the first time. And surprisingly the couple have turned their impending-parenthood excitement into something unique yet useful; a charity.
Through the so-called Richie Madden Children's Foundation, the celebrity lovers will be hosting a baby shower and gift presentation for moms in-need, due to which they are inviting people to join their project by donating 100 products in one or more of the categories provided.
"Nicole would like to invite friends, family and fans across America to participate in the moms-in-need program and highly publicized baby shower. The Richie Madden Children's Foundation will create and promote an online registry to inspire the purchases of items for moms and their families in need. Anyone in the country will be able buy from the registry on her behalf for the clinic. The registry link will live on the Richie Madden Children's Foundation website for at least six months and will be updated regularly based on the needs of the LA Free Clinic and other participating clinics," so stated in the release about the Richie Madden Children's Foundation as published by Us Weekly.
