Eliza Dushku Successfully Raises $30,000 for Charity


Eliza Dushku


The actress wants the money to benefit child soldiers in Uganda, buying the land and getting the permits and architectural design.

Actress Eliza Dushku spent her 30th birthday on Thursday, December 30 celebrating after raising $30,000 for charity. The "Bring it On" star is spearheading efforts to build a recovery center for former child soldiers in Uganda, and she asked friends and family to make donations to the cause instead of buying her expensive presents.

Her loved ones and fans rallied round to help her reach her goal - and she was left overwhelmed when the target was reached in just a few days. In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Good morning, angels - thank u for my 30th birthday wish! this is beyond me... THANK U... EVERYONE - WHOO-HOOO!"

In an interview with Celebuzz, Dushku said, "Raise $30,000 to buy the land and get the permits and architectural design down. Then we have other requests out to corporations that we can start to build the center and have staffers. The land is $22,000 and we have a number of people on the ground working on this. We need to purchase the land, pay the fees and start building."
