Buy Scarlett: It's for charity!
Scarlett Johansson may be a gorgeous, attractive woman who has become one of the most glamorous women in Hollywood since she stepped into the world of movies. She is admired by men and women alike, and she has been rated as one of the most beautiful women to have graced the screens in the past decade. However, beauty is not always skin deep, and for Scarlett Johansson, one can say that she comes with the whole package, because beauty for her, extends beyond looking good all the time.
She has been very active as a charity worker for quite a few years. She says that she finds it fulfilling, and that it helps her connect with the community at a deeper level, which can only be achieved when you begin to understand the problems faced by society all over the world, and when you begin to actively help out in order to make a difference in the lives of the less-than-fortunate people.
Scarlett Johansson has been an Oxfam ambassador since 2004. She has actively supported many of the projects by Oxfam, including one in which in March 2008, there was an eBay auction which had her as the auctioned person! According to the stipulations, the one who would win the auction would get the chance of a lifetime. Apart from getting spa treatments and hair and make-up treatment, the winner would also win couple-tickets, and would get to accompany Scarlett Johansson for 20 minutes on the red carpet for the world premiere of He’s Just Not That into You. A bidder from the UK won the competition by paying 20,000 pounds in order to get the golden opportunity.
Scarlett used her celebrity status, and unabashedly allowed for the auction, which involved her, in order to get the much needed money for Oxfam projects. In 2007, she had bypassed the Oscars in order to be actively involved in an Oxfam field project involving India and Sri Lanka. She has also been very actively involved in the relief projects for the Hurricane Katrina survivors. She helped distribute food to those who were homeless and hungry on the aftermath of the destructive hurricane.
Johansson has also made a video journal of her visit to Kenya for relief projects, and in 2008, she had also visited Rwanda in order to help spread awareness about AIDS. This was a part of a bigger project for AIDS awareness in African nations, and for four days, she helped at the clinic in Rwanda, and worked hand in hand with the other charity volunteers who were present.
Scarlett Johansson may be as fond of shoes and clothes as any other girl. Because she has the means to buy them, she has bought a large collection of shoes from all over the world, but her desire to help those in need, trumps her desire for such possessions. She has, over time, donated about two thousand pairs of shoes for charity, to an organization called Soles4Souls. Johansson is not just a woman with a pretty face, she is also a woman with a beautiful heart.
