It’s no secret that I am a huge Sex & the City, and Sarah Jessica Parker fan. Just tonight I was watching some of SATC season 2 as I relaxed on the couch. Some people meditate or do yoga to relax, I watch SJP. My first choice is always reruns of Carrie and her friends, but I could watch any movie Sarah is in a million times over. Part of my admiration for her goes back to her timeless beauty and grace, but her big heart and generous spirit really makes me a fan. I could go on and on about how much I love her, but SJP’s actions speak a lot louder than my words ever could. Get ready to fall in love.
Even though she’s not Carrie Bradshaw in real life, SJP does seem to share a lot of the same characteristics of the character that made her iconic. Number one on the list, fashion. So it makes sense that SJP would be a supporter of Shoe Revolt which is a non-profit that is fighting human sex-trafficking with fashion. SR raises money by selling shoes online that have been donated to their cause. Most are only $10-15 so really anyone can revolt! What are they gonna do with all that money? I’m glad you asked. Their goal is to build 51 shelters, one for each state and D.C., where victims are provided with long-term care for up to 24 months. These shelters will help provide basic needs in a loving environment, and offer mentoring and counseling for these courageous survivors. SJP has donated some blue Frye boots, some taupe heels, and even some sequined flats. A diverse group of donations for a diverse lady. Buying shoes is fun, but standing up against sexual exploration is serious business. SJP has also been an ambassador for UNICEF since 1998, but she is also an avid supporter of the Food Bank For New York City. With over 3 million New Yorkers having difficulty buying food FBNYC provides over 400,000 meals a day. Food prices are only getting higher, and food supply is only getting lower so charities like FBNYC will be needed more and more in the future. For 27 years they have been distributing food, helping individuals with income support, and providing nutritional education to families. FBNYC also received the Mighty Apple Award, for the most fresh produce collected from Feeding America for distribution to the network, for the fifth time in six years. Hey when SJP picks a charity, she goes big.

So here’s to you Sarah Jessica Parker! You won me over many years ago, but you’ve kept me coming back to see what good and loving project you will support next. You’re a mom, a wife, an actress, a volunteer, an advocate, and an inspiration. Thank you for being fabulous in fashion, movies, television, and life.
