QUEEN LATIFAH: Rosario Dawson Gets Messy for Charity
Actress, producer, philanthropist and environmentalist Rosario Dawson stars in new movie, Gimme Shelter, where she looks almost unrecognizable playing mother to actress Vanessa Hudgens. Rosario proved she isn’t afraid to get a little messy for a good cause, and that stayed true when she played a fun game of pie throwing with Queen Latifah and Bridget to win money for her charity, Studio One Eighty Nine.
Studio One Eighty Nine is a social enterprise created by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah that consist of creatives that seeks to provide a platform to help promote and curate African and African-inspired content through an ecommerce shopping site, a supporting agency and an artisan produced fashion collection, called Fashion Rising Collection, launched in support of V-Day’s One Billion Rising. We focus on creating opportunities for empowerment, education and employment of artisans and creatives.

Kisua, a global online store that offers contemporary, ready-to-wear African fashion, stepped up to the pie plate and donated $500 for every pie thrown for Rosario’s charity! And to make things even more exciting (and messy!), Rosario won an even $5,000 for getting behind the target herself. Take a look!
