Kristen is heartbroken over the tragedy that struck the Sandy Hook Elementary School. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details on how the concerned actress hopes to help.
A friend of Kristen’s tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Kristen is just horrified over what happened in Newtown. She really wants to help the families and teachers and show her support.”
“She plans on making a donation and jumping on the bandwagon for stricter gun laws,” said the friend.
As HollywoodLife.com recently reported, Kristen participated in 12.12.12: The Concert for Sandy Relief, where she urged viewers to lend a hand and support all those suffering. The actress then went on to donate the gorgeous gown she wore to her Los Angeles Breaking Dawn: Part 2 premiere in November to the Robin Hood Foundation, which, in turn, will auction the dress. The money raised will go to the Hurricane Sandy victims.
Kristen’s friend says, “It was Kristen’s idea to donate her red carpet dress to the Hurricane Sandy relief fund. She has a huge heart and helping others is important to her. She feels really fortunate that she is in a position to help so many people and will continue to do as much as she can.”
The auction for her nude, strapless Zuhair Murad dress closes Thursday, Dec.20, with a minimum bid starting at $2,000.
