Kids: the coolest and most important of all the humans * For two years I've been a proud Ambassador of Save the Children, focused on supporting their programs in Australia's Kimberley region. (You can take the girl outta Broome ...) * What a pleasure it was to participate in another of their initiatives while recently based in Melbourne. 'Cubbies' is where kick ass youth workers oversee vibrant playgrounds for vulnerable kids who've experienced hardship like fleeing war as a refugee. These inspiring teams use play as the main tool to help kids recover and to build cognitive, social and emotional health. * It feels so important that our at risk youth have access to these safe and empowering community spaces. * If you're looking to volunteer or back up a nonprofit @savechildrenaus work across 120 countries and have truly honorable programs that put children first. * with *Sarah (who taught me hand clapping games have really upped in their complexity since the 80s) and my buddy and Ambassador @longlukearnold
Lately, she's also been able to spend quality time in her home country acting, but this time on the theatre stage! She took part in the Shakespeare play, Macbeth, just last year in Melbourne!
As a Masters of Sex alum and master of theatre, van der Boom clearly has what it takes to be an international actress. We hope to see her more on screen!
