Alyssa Milano, star of the upcoming ABC sitcom Romantically Challenged, speaks at the UNICEF Ball on December 10, 2009 about the tireless work done every single day by this longstanding charity. She discusses several trips she has taken over the years with UNICEF and how she is touched in a unique way by the work they do.

Alyssa has been working with the charity since 2003 as a Goodwill Ambassador but points out that charity involvement is a personal choice. She does feel however that if a celebrity gets involved in a charity they should be truly involved, not just a figurehead for the cause.

Don’t forget to also see my post on Alyssa’s birthday wish to raise $75,000 to provide clean water to families through Charity: Water.
