Kristen Stewart Wants To Help Sandy Hook Victims

Kristen Stewart Sandy Hook Victims

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.

Kristen Stewart just returned from NYC where she was busy supporting the victims of Hurricane Sandy. She now hopes to do the same with those suffering in Newtown, Conn.

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.

Kristen returned to LA on Dec.14, where she plans on spending the holidays with Robert Pattinson.

I think its nice for Kristen, other celebs, and everyone is doing something about it. We all need to do something about it. These are our children. I am a mom too. And also a volunteer. I had a 15 year old daughter. And I volunteer at a reading program at the elementary school. So I feel for Sandy Hook Elementary.

One day people will say, “Do you remember Kristen Stewart?”. The Woman, the Myth, the Legend. This is truly what makes one great; helping others.

Personally, I have seen this greatness in Kristen for a really long time. She comes highly recommended. By that I mean Jodie Foster loves her. Jodie Foster has worked with numerous young ladies; however, she only took a main ‘fancy’ to Kristen. These are just two of the many things that I love and adore about K-Stew.

All Love goes out to Kristen! :)

For the love of common sense

There is such a thing as “you cant please everyone” no matter what she does someone is not going to be satisfied,and i clearly don’t see anywhere she making those things known ,its always a source says or a friend of says , never the direct words of the person. Listen whichever reason she is trying to lend her support let her do so then ask yourself . ” what are you doing?” when you can answer that judge until then give it a rest.

I don’t know if this is legit but while reading this I was very happy UNTIL I got to the end. They just HAD to add Robert pattinson somewhere in the article even though it was about Kristen wanting to help victims of a terrible tragedy they just couldn’t live with themselves if they didnt add SOMETHING about her personal life. I was honestly disgusted

If this is true, why does she announce it an just do it. I can’t not believe she would use this tragic situation to just seek attention. Shame on you Kristen and Shame on you HL if this is not true.

Totally agree with you, She can do it anonimous, why does She has to announce it? Im sure a lot of artists want to do the same but the difference is that they do not use the tragedy of others to help their careers, instead, shes just showing us how selfish and inmature She is

to guest, why can Lady GaGa announce she gave one million dollars to Sandy relief and not Kristen, that’s not fair. Kristen has given millions of dollars over the years for many different causes that we never knew about!! It’s about time Kristen “IS” acknowledged for her generousity!!!

I hope everyone knows that Kristen is only doing this kind of ‘support’ to make herself look better after her affair. Also to promote her new movie. Not out of the goodness of her heart. Her publicist is still doing damage control. But I bet naive Twilight fans don’t understand that.

You know nothing about her motives so stop hating on this board. You probably hate yourself first and is green with envy and with nothing better to do than to malign others. What have you done to help others lately? People like you it’s whats wrong with this country

Like I said, naive Twilight fan. I’m whats wrong with this country? You are aware that a man just killed 26 kids and teachers right? I’m not spreading hate, I’m just saying the truth. Thats how Hollywood works, its all about good publicity, which Kristen is trying to gain.

really lillian? you are idolizing this girl without really knowing anything at all about her or what her motives are. and rachel is 100% right,she could have done all of this (if it is actually true) and not have to announce it first.and plz explain to me why it is,that whenever someone says something that you don’t agree with,you krisbians start in with the ‘your just jealous,or your just green with envy’? or that we hate ourselves?? you do realize how incredibly stupid you sound,right? and fyi,i am not jealous,green with envy,nor do i hate myself. i do in fact hate when a celeb uses a tragedy for their personal ego boost. if she does actually do this,that’s really great.but she does not have to make it public before hand.that is really tacky and it’s like the celeb saying ‘oh look at me and what i am doing to help these people,everyone should praise me’……..so before you try and tell me how i feel,let me just clarify something…..with this one post,she has managed to take the attention away from the people of newtown.where it shoud be and refocus it on her.
and that is what pisses me off.

What exactly did she ever do before that affair. She showed you the finger, rolled her eyes, told her BF to shut the fck up on the comic con Panel…showed you her fckyou face and was miserable all the time that she called herself a c–t..nice and now I should believe she does good . A woman who befriends a wife and children before fcking their husband and father and needs attention can’t be taken seriously

I know, right ? Her publicist will be doing damage control for awhile to come. Why didn’t she do this type of stuff while ago ? Plenty of oppertunity then,and also, where is Rob ?
Will her staff stop at nothing to make their client look good ?
i was reading this and was going to come here and give a shout -out to Kristen and say ” Brava !! Way to go, on doing something posisitve and turning around your public image” but after reading the comments (yours and “guest” ) I changed my mind. Now,i see it for what it is: a publicity stunt to make herself look good.
If this IS a genuine relief effort, then she will have to do more than this. I really do feel bad for her: Why ? Because no matter what she does, it will never be enough in the eyes of the public.
Her publicist will be busy for a long time yet.
Oh and yeah, why announce it? Real heroes do not do things publicly: they do so behind the scenes, so as not to make a scene, and gain attention for their good works.

After reading the hate comments, I was wondering – you do all realize Kristen is very involved with the red cross, right? And that she’s involved with trying to open half-way houses to get young teen-age prostitutes forced into that life off the streets, to help them into a new way of life, and that she did public service messages for victims of date rape after the movie Speak? She does alot of things behind the scenes that aren’t “announced”. Her dress being auctioned for Sandy relief is on a list along with Dave Grohl’s drum sticks, Paul McCartney, Bon Jovi, and Bruce Springsteen signed guitars, the list goes on. That was announced to make people aware that there are things up for auction. It’s just not Kristen’s name on the list. Like it or not, she does have a famous name, and if she can use that name for good, then more power to her. Like many others on here, I wonder what you have done lately to help. Instead of using all this energy to hate, why don’t you use it to write a check, or donate some time to help these people? Just stop with all the hate. The people of Newtown have had enough of that, don’t you think?
