Scarlett Johansson is a passionate and commited advocate and fundraiser and has been involved with Oxfam for since 2005.

In 2007 she traveled to Sri Lanka and India to meet young girls who have a chance to go to school against great prejudice and poverty, and she also met families affected by the Tsunami on the coastline of southern Sri Lanka.

Scarlett has been involved in great fundraising projects with us including an exclusive Louis Vuitton event in NY and donating money through photoshoots. She is also a powerful advocate – writing to Chancellor Merkel before the G8 and putting her voice alongside Mr Nelson Mandela and His Grace Emeritus Archbishop Desmond Tutu for the launch of the GCAP Campaign (also known as Make Poverty History/ONE Campaign).

Scarlett continues to be one of our inspiring and creative supporters.
