Anne Hathaway is one of the most sought after actresses in the world right now. In between working on movies such as Alice in Wonderland, Valentines Day, The Fiance and the theatrical production of Twelfth Night the actress still manages to give back to the community.
Hathaway is a huge supporter of Service Nation, “a national campaign to increase service opportunities and elevate service as a core ideal and problem solving strategy in American society.”
Boasting 200-plus member groups of different stripes, Service Nation played a prominent role in drafting the 2009 Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. Service Nation “envisions an America in which a commonly asked question is, ‘Where do you serve?’” According to Hathaway, she got involved when a fellow film star introduced her to the organization.
“I became involved when my friend Tobey Maguire reached out to me about being on the board,” Hathaway says. “I think service is important, and I really like how far-reaching Service Nation is — there are lots of opportunities to make a difference. I plan to focus my efforts on bringing awareness, fund-raising and, of course, being of service.”
