Actress Goldie Hawn has turned into a full-fledged philanthropist! She held the inaugural ‘Love In For Kids’ benefit for the Hawn Foundation’s MindUp program. Goldie’s daughter, Kate Hudson, as well as her longtime partner, Kurt Russell, attended as well. RELATED: Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn were pink proud for breast cancer awareness month.
The MindUp program is:
.. a research-based training program for educators and children. This program is composed of 15 lessons based in neuroscience. Students learn to self-regulate behavior and mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success.
Hmmm… that sounds really interesting! Goldie partnered with neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists and educators to create MindUp. The goal is to foster:
… a classroom-learning environment where a child’s ability to academically succeed and personally thrive is maximized and directly linked to their overall state of well-being.
That sounds incredible. It’s great that Goldie used her resources to pull together a great multidisciplinary team for something so important. I hope the benefit was a great success!
It’s also fun to see Goldie and Kate on the red carpet together. They genuinely seem so close; it’s great to see.
