Watching the latest Anne Hathaway movie can be as easy as buying tickets online, getting in line at the theater, and having a seat, but that often isn't feasible for movie-loving children suffering from chronic illnesses. That’s one reason the Oscar-winning star has teamed up with Lollipop, a nonprofit organization that works to ensure that children who are confined to hospitals can get access to blockbusters that are still only in theaters.
On Monday, Hathaway took to Instagram to profess her advocacy for the organization in a glowing selfie. “Like helping people? Wear clothes? Buy this tee shirt and help Lollipop bring the magic of movies to seriously ill kids across the nation,” she wrote as the caption to the photo. In the selfie, the brunette smiles for the camera with a pair of oversize sunglasses and a vintage-like graphic shirt.
The #WearShareLollipop item seen on the star is $30 and comes in a variety of neutral iterations with gray and pink lettering. This, of course, isn’t the first time Hathaway has used her platform to speak out on important causes. She most recently joined the United Nations as a Global Goodwill Ambassador.
That’s what paying it forward looks like.
