Women’s History Month: Vixens Who Give Back


3. Gabrielle Union
Juggling a successful film career and her relationship with Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union is no stranger to giving back. In 2007, Union’s best friend was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. Her fundraising efforts for the cause led her to be named Ambassador for the Susan G. Komen Foundation Circle of Promise program. The Think Like A Man star also devotes her time to helping the Young Survivor Coalition and the Rape Treatment Center at UCLA. The Nebraska native even helped found a program called “A Step for Success” which helps to raise money for the economically-challenged Kelso Elementary School located in Los Angeles.
