Actress Anne Hathaway is for a long time a supporter of LGBT rights. To continue to show her support towards the community, she has decided to give the money received from the sale of her wedding photographs to organizations which fight for marriage equality like Freedom to Marry.
The 29-year-old actress married Adam Shulman in September. As the marriage was private with only family members and friends, the actress will thus sell some photographs to the press.
The money of some sales will be donated to support various campaigns launched in United States in order to promote marriage equality.
According to Contactmusic, the money will also be split between the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and The Girl Effect, which helps impoverished young women.
As reminds Freedom to Marry, in 2008 she was awarded the Human Rights Campaign's Ally Award and gave a rousing speech about the importance of acceptance of LGBT people:
She said, "I don't consider myself just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family. And so, I'm doing what we should all do with our families - I'm loving you, I support you, I completely accept you as you are, as I hope you do me, and if anyone ever tries to hurt you, I'm going to give them hell."
Thanks for this wonderful gesture.
