She's done so much good with the charity, we're happy to hear that the torch could be being passed on.
Susan Sarandon revealed to Parade Magazine that it is her fervent wish that her eldest son, Jack, travel with her on her next Unicef Charity trip. As a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, has made several excursions to far off places that have plague with famines or HIV/AIDS. As her son is an aspiring film maker, she's eager for him to have a complete world view, so that it might influence his work.
She tells the mag:
"I'm hoping that my eldest son will join me. He has expressed an interest in taking a trip with me and possibly filming. One of the things that's always been the hardest is how lonely you are when you're there and you're so emotionally involved, so to be able to have one of my kids with me, I think would be great for me and probably very educational for him. It's been really eye-opening. The reason that they send celebrities into these places is so that you can come back and speak in the first person about what you've seen. Besides that obvious reason, it's just such an education for me to really get to be in people's homes or huts and to talk to people and be able to ask questions and understand something on a personal level as opposed to just reading about it. I'm very, very grateful for the opportunities that I've had."
And we're sure all the people you've helped over the years are grateful that you still make time to do such important work. We can't wait to hear what your son takes away from the experience.
