The International Rescue Committee Freedom Award Dinner in NYC

The International Rescue Committee hosted its annual Freedom Award Dinner last night at the Waldorf Astoria in New York to support the organization’s lifesaving humanitarian aid work and honor long-time IRC supporters Cliff and Laurel Asness and Ken and Vickie French with the Humanitarian Leadership Award. In a very special moment, Sting joined IRC President and CEO David Miliband on stage to honor humanitarian aid workers across the world.  Helping others is what makes the world go round and this initiative really shines a light on what’s important in life. Mikhail Baryshnikov and IRC Voices Piper Perabo, Nykhor Paul and Danielle de Niese also attended. #youvebeenVALidated to be inspired!  I invite you to share ways you like to give back.

Joe Zee’s Coat Drive for Those in Need!

Hope everyone had a great holiday season! Check out the lovely story wrote about my contribution. You can watch me interview all the A-List celebs that came out and contributed to the coat drive!

The DivaGals were busy during the holidays! Our contributing reporter Valerie Greenberg caught up with her TV pal, Elle‘s fashion director Joe Zee as the All on the Line Sundance Channel star hosted a New York Cars Coat Drive inside Bloomingdale’s on Lexington Avenue in New York City last month.

Joe’s celebrity friends, including Parenthood‘s Lauren Graham, Hot in Cleveland‘s Valerie Bertinelli, Covet Affairs‘ Piper Perabo and Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe, among others, were on hand to lend a sleeve (or two!) to the cause.

Check out below where Valerie gets the scoop on why they were so eager to get involved and help keep the nation’s less fortunate warm this winter.
