Nicole Kidman Takes a Day For Goodwill

Australia hits theaters today, but Nicole Kidman took a break from her busy press schedule to present a petition against violence towards women at the United Nations in NYC yesterday. As a UNIFEM Goodwill Ambassador, Nicole talked about how happy she was to get over 5 million signatures, saying, “We thought that the more names we collected, the stronger our case to make ending violence against women a top priority for governments everywhere. Well, the results are in. We’ve tallied the numbers from Bangkok and Tanzania, from Ecuador to Fiji, from Jordan to India. I am so delighted to announce that they have far, far, surpassed our goal." Nicole's philanthropic projects have always been as important to her as films, and hopefully she can inspire others to do some good deeds this holiday season as well.
