EXCLUSIVE! Sophia Bush Is Saving The World One Charity At A Time! Find Out HOW She Does It All & Why It Makes Her TV Bosses Nervous HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsExclusives!InspirationSophia BushCharity

Humanitarian award alert!

We recently got a chance to sit down with Sophia Bush, who talked to us EXCLUSIVELY about the charities that are close to her heart.

Being a talented actress and focusing on her new NBC show Chicago P.D., you would think she would have little time to do much else, but Sophia isn't just your average Hollywood star!

The girl is passionate about the charities she's involved in and has mastered the skill of being a full-time humanitarian.

She's currently working hard with Pencils of Promise, an organization that builds schools in developing countries, and I Am That Girl, which is another lovely charity that helps support the initiative that girls should accept themselves for who they are - and as Sophia points out, encourages young women to "collaborate instead of compete with each other."

Bravo!!

And, if that's not all, she's also planning a VERY risky move that has her TV bosses super nervous - but it's all in the name of charity! When does she find time to sleep??

Find out how this wonder woman juggles it all (hint: it has a lot to do with her thumbs!) AND what is making her NBC execs a little nervous by pressing PLAY (above)!

So epic!

We aren't sure our granddad ever wore a fringed jacket over a polka dotted button-down like Macklemore, but the rapper is right about one thing — he does look incredible, LOLz!

Big mack attacked the stage at our ah-mazingly awesome One Night In… Austin event on Sunday, and we wouldn't be able to live with ourselves if we didn't show you the sweet music made with Ryan Lewis and Wanz!

For the sixth straight year, we took our talented friends to Austin and blew everyone's minds with SXSW's most ass-kicking event!

Words haven't been invented to accurately describe the awesomeness of Sunday's One Night In… Austin partAAy, but we will try and paint a picture of the gloriousness anyway!!

There was fabulous music and delicious drinks! Our favorite celebz mingled with our perezilicous fans!

Fall Out Boy surprised the crap out of everyone by playing a fabulous set!

And, best of all, we raised over $53,000 for two of our fantastic charities!!!

It's true!!

In addition to showcasing the most anticipated performances at SXSW, our event successfully raised $53,000 for VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools and GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring safe schools for all and creating a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation!

We're proud to have collected so much cash for such great causes, but we certainly couldn't have done it alone!

We couldn't have thrown such an amazing party and raised so much money without

Baby Products That Give Back!

The baby planers

The Baby Planners are honoring National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by sharing their favorite products that also give back.

Many items for both babies and moms donate a portion of their proceeds to breast cancer charities and Ellie & Melissa want to give Perezitos.com readers all the info on how they can help too!

There are a number of foundations, walks, and products devoted to raising money for breast cancer research, education and support this month so keep on the look out for "Pink Ribbon Items" that are sold to help support breast cancer research and who donate a portion of the proceeds to breast cancer charities.

Check out celebrity fave Little Giraffe. Their soft, luxurious baby blankets have won over Victoria Beckham, Rachel Zoe, Christina Applegate, Katie Holmes, Angelina Jolie, Kelly Preston, and Miranda Kerr, and during the month of October, Little Giraffe will be donating 10% of all proceeds from their popular pink Luxe blankets and throws to Breast Cancer research. Giving back never felt so cozy and comforting!

And it'll make you feel better when spending too! Thanks, Baby Planners!

More tips like this? Questions? Keep coming back to Perezitos.com and follow Ellie & Melissa @thebabyplanners on Twitter.

Final Issue Of News Of The World Sells Ridiculous Amounts!

final issue of news of the world sells ridiculous amounts

Wow.

Despite the controversy over News of the World hacking cell phones of 9/11 victims, the paper's final issue sold ABSURD amounts!

According to the latest numbers, the paper sold 3.8 MILLION COPIES on Sunday!!!

We obvi have major issues with the phone hacking claims against NOTW, but we'll admit we were happy to hear that advertising space in the issue was provided free of charge for charities/good causes.

Guess we'll see which paper fills the void for Brits now that NOTW is gone…
