To celebrate her birthday, the star announced that she will be donating to three charity organisations of her choice.
She made the announcement on Monday.
“It’s THREE days before my THIRTIETH birthday and I’ve had a number of friends ask me what I want for my birthday. Honestly and truly I feel like God has blessed me with everything I need right now and so I’d like to extend that blessing to those who aren’t as fortunate,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I’ve identified three different charities that I’d like you to donate to as a birthday gift to me. 1. Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project @ctaop 2. Save The Children South Africa @savethechildrensouthafrica @savethechildren 3. Door of Hope Children’s Mission @doorofhopesa. Any amount that you can donate will go a long way. I will put links to their pages on my stories over the next few days.”
