"I've been to Nepal twice with UNICEF. I was incredible to see for myself where the money goes and what a huge impact it has on these communities. I was able to get an understanding of what UNICEF does-whether it's teaching people about water sanitation, vaccinating children, or providing a safe house for young girls who have been abducted. I'm fortunate to have this opportunity."
"For me, there is this hope that these communities can develop and grow and educate the children who will grow up to sustain the future. The movies I've worked on have all spoken predominantly to kids, whether it's Lord of the Rings or Pirates of the Caribbean. I've always loved kids and I want to be a voice for these children."
"I spent an afternoon with a young girl named Rita, who was about 6 years old. She spends half her day collecting water. She carries a water tank in a basket, with a strap that goes over her forehead to distribute the weight. She walks a few miles up and down a mountain to get to a well and collects water to bring back to her house. And the water she's collecting from the well is not clean, it can make her sick."
"In one village we were basically teaching kids under the age of five how to wash their hands. In Nepal alone 13,000 children under the age of five died last year from diarrhea. At home, you can go to the pharmacy, get a pill and it's gone. But in these communities, it's a killer."

"Nepal is truly remarkable. You see a village hanging off of a mountain and it looks like one of the most beautiful places in the world. But life is incredibly grueling. These kids are without basic necessities like running water and electricity. The things we take for granted."
