Faces of Kibera is a New York State nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping the rising number of orphans in Kibera, Kenya. Kibera is the largest slum in East Africa. With an estimated one million people concentrated in one square mile, the living conditions in Kibera are desperate for all, and particularly difficult for the children. Our goal is to push back against this tide of poverty, illness and deprivation by creating and supporting a community-based facility outside of Kibera to provide care, education and services to the orphans of Kibera.

Okay, more specifically, she hopes you will do the right thing and give a goat to a community in need, as they provide both fertilizer and food to people in need in rural areas. You can watch her pitch below.

ROONEYÂ MaraÂ is a fan of “natural beauty” and doesn’t wear much make-up in her everyday life.
The ‘Side Effects’ actress admits she thinks she would be “horrible” at applying cosmetics herself.
“For me, natural beauty is something I’ve always been drawn to. I still don’t really wear make-up in my everyday life and I would be horrible at even trying to do it to myself!” she said.
With her fondness for looking natural, it’s no surprise Rooney doesn’t have many go-to beauty products, and instead believes her radiant skin is a reflection on her diet.
Quizzed about her skincare product of choice, the fuss-free star said: “This is going to sound so simple, but sunscreen! I always wear sunscreen. I also find that what you eat is the best beauty secret; it sort of starts from the inside out.”
The 28-year-old beauty – who is the face of Calvin Klein’s new Downtown perfume – also reveals that the fashion house’s designs reflect her own simplistic style.
“The Calvin Klein collection is really quite similar to how I dress in my personal life. It’s very minimal and clean and comfortable, but very modern and chic at the same time,” she said.
Rooney recently filmed a glamorous campaign for the new perfume, which was shot by her ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ director David Fincher.Â

Management 360 has signed Rooney Mara, who is coming into her own after breakout turns in The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Mara continues to be repped by WME. She followed those films by starring with Channing Tatum, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones in the Steven Soderbergh-directed Side Effects and most recently in Ainât Them Bodies Saints, which premiered at Sundance and will be released later this year.
There is still every hope sheâll reprise her role as goth heroine Lisbeth Salander, as Andrew Kevin Walker is working on a rewrite of that script for Sony. She got an Oscar nomination for her first turn in that role. Mara next stars in the Spike Jonze-directed Her, and she stars with Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender in the new Terrence Malick film.

Hollywood’s female actors tend to fall into one of two categories when talking about themselves. The sexy starlet types will try effusively to convince you they were tomboys growing up, while the serious actors â irritated to be talking about anything but the art – will begrudgingly allow you to write that they were dark-minded toddlers or troubled teens. So,Rooney Mara: which were you?
“I like that. That’s good.” She smiles, and it takes her extraordinarily malleable face from blank to beautiful in an instant. “Well, OK: when I was three or four, I decided to dress up for Halloween as Clara, the crippled girl in the Heidi books. I wanted to make it authentic so I insisted my mom wheel me around in a buggy; you know, because the crippled girl needed a wheelchair.”
Did she agree to that? “Sure she did. She was totally on board.”
Certainly, then, one couldn’t accuse Rooney Mara of lacking the requisite, natural-born imagination from which to draw the range of characters she’s created, from her blistering tour de force as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, to her short but memorable turn as Mark Zuckerberg’s quietly furious girlfriend at the start of The Social Network. But it’s her face, sculpted in the tradition of a Mary Pickford or Mae Marsh â all Slavic cheekbones, porcelain skin and cool, intelligent eyes â that instantly mesmerises. It’s an extraordinary face: plain and pretty at the same time, she gives away nothing in person but everything when in front of the camera. Steven Soderbergh, director of her latest film Side Effects, describes it as “[a] very classical, almost silent-movie face; very ‘shootable’.” • Read full story »

Since zooming to stardom in last yearâsÂ The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara has gone from virtual unknown to that rare combination of serious actress and fashion-world darling. Recently named a face of Calvin Klein, Mara is no ingenue. Instead, she evokes the intensity of the seventies, when the world of filmmaking was dominated by passionate auteurs. As with those directorsâand her brilliant mentor, David FincherâMara is both complicated and uncompromising.
