The actress announced that her organization, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, will launch an initiative called Together For Her to raise money for domestic violence shelters and community-based programs that combat gender-based violence. Charlize pledged $500,000 to the new cause, as well as an additional $500,000 to other COVID-19 relief efforts.
"During this unprecedented global crisis, we are being told to shelter in the safety of our homes — but what if our homes aren't safe?" Charlize wrote on Instagram. "For the millions of women and children around the world sheltering with their abuser, home can be dangerous . . . Please join us in showing women experiencing domestic violence that they are not alone — we are behind them, with them, for them, #TogetherForHer."
