Sandra Bullock Reaches Out to Katrina-Hit Students; Gets into Easton Hall of Fame

Apart from her beauty and excellent acting skills, charity initiatives have managed to keep Sandra Bullock right on headline spaces all through her career. This time too, we have a noble initiative kick started by the pretty actress to tell you. And, this time around, she has reached out the kids who have been hard hit by Hurricane Katrina.

Bullock has given away donations to the Warren Easton Charter High School in New Orleans. The latest charity amount doled out by the actress is to the tune of $25,000 as scholarship money to the school.

In 2005, the school was damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Since then, Bullock has been concerned about the children there and has been extending a helping hand whenever the school needed her.

The actress and seven other members of the alumni have been selected to the 2012 Warren Easton Hall of Fame. The 20th Annual Hall of Fame Ceremony will take place on Friday, May 18. The event will get underway Easton’s auditorium at 3019 Canal St.

The ceremony will see college scholarships totaling $53,000 being awarded to theEastonstudents. Significant is the fact that half of the scholarship amount was donated by Sandra Bullock.

Bullock’s kindness is not something new for her fans. A few months back she was titled the most generous celebrity. It may also be recalled that she had once donated $1 million to the American Red Cross’Japan relief effort and $1 million to Doctors Without Borders after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
