Beautiful women doing good, a trend worth continuing

Maria Sharapova, the gorgeous and skilled young tennis stud(ette?) will be joining the ranks of UN goodwill ambassadors, focusing on the Chernobyl area. The Russian woman”s parents actually lived not far from the city and moved to Siberia when the nuclear reactor melted down. It was there that Sharapova was born in 1987. After signing up as an ambassador, she also donated $100,000 to relief efforts in the area.

Sharapova now joins actress Angelina Jolie as one of the UN”s very high profile goodwill ambassadors. As I said, I like this trend.
