Nicole Richie and Joel Madden?s Christmas Giving

Tuesday, December 25, 2007


It was a busy weekend leading up to Christmas for soon-to-be parents Nicole Richie and Joel Madden.

The couple hosted a holiday party on Saturday at Paramount Studios for about 200 youngsters and their parents - all who have participated in Los Angeles County's Beyond Shelter program, which helps financially strapped families find housing.

"We really wanted to give these kids a really wonderful and special Christmas. It's our favorite holiday," Richie told press.

Speaking of the reasoning behind their charitable ways, Nicole explained, "It's hard to believe there are so many homeless families on the streets in our own neighborhoods. Estimates are that 25,000 families with 75,000 children are homeless in Los Angeles each year, and it's getting worse."

The 26-year-old former Simple Life star, who is expecting her first child next month, continued: "So it was a no-brainer for us to pull this party together for them for the holidays."

Ringing similar sentiments, Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden tells, "It's fun for us to be with a bunch of kids who are having a good time. They make you smile. Hopefully for today they're feeling special."

The following day, the couple took a little time for themselves, as they were spotted out grabbing a few last minute gifts and a bite to eat at a Hollywood pizza parlor.
