Portia de Rossi and Ellen Degeneres both raised money for FXB to help rebuild villages in Uganda. This event took place due to the overwhelming statistics of premature death and starvation in these areas. The fundraiser was very popular, with many large companies, and big celebrities donating over $400,000.
The mission of FXB is to fight poverty and AIDS, and support the world’s orphans and vulnerable children left in the wake of the pandemic. Their unique model involves providing a packaged set of services, supplies, and education to a village of 70-80 families, in an effort to get the community back on its feet. More details in the video:
