Jenny McCarthy for a Cause: Generation Rescue and Kids with Autism
A celebrity with a cause is always headline worthy.
Actress Jenny McCarthy is partnering with the Magic Bullet for a Blue Limited Edition Magic Bullet in honor of her charity organization, Generation Rescue.
In an interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop, the actress confirms that the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help families with children faced with autism, “Our partnership with Magic Bullet® allows us to leverage its worldwide popularity to generate funding for Generation Rescue’s programs that provide education, support and access to medical services for families with autism.”
Jenny started advocating for the group when her son Evan was 2 1/2 years old (now 11) and diagnosed with autism. Since then, Evan has had a full recovery, yet the actress remains steadfast in the cause.
The actress tells CBS, “My story of Evan’s recovery is not unique, there are thousands of parents before me whose shoulders I stand on today. I’m just as active today as when Evan recovered from autism,” she says with conviction, “I still travel the country lecturing on autism, am the president and board member of Generation Rescue and actively fundraise throughout the country for the foundation. My journey now is for the other parents whose voice hasn’t been heard.”
While Evan’s diagnosis was tough on Jenny, she now sees it as a blessing in disguise, “Anytime you can do something that serves the greater good and make a difference, you should act. So, what I thought was a hardship in my life, I know see as a blessing because I can reach so many people.”
