Nicole and Joel Dig In and Lend a Hand For Charity

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden spent a few hours away from adorable Sparrow and Harlow yesterday to help out some other deserving kids at a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Beyond Shelter organization in LA. The couple is deeply involved in children's charities, especially their own Richie-Madden Foundation. After the event, Nicole tweeted an appreciative note to the volunteers saying, "It felt great to be back. The playground has happened thanx to all of you who helped!" Even with Nicole's busy schedule, including her latest exciting announcement about a new clothing line, Winter Kate, she still makes time to support important causes and show off her big heart.
