Ashley Tisdale has been enjoying her life as a newlywed, but now she is ready get back to reality, to reach out, and give back in a big way.
Her life is great right now. She says of her married life with Christopher French of Annie Automatic, "It's great! It doesn't really feel like anything has changed even though it has. It's like I'm married to my best friend."
Ashley Tisdale is spreading the love now by teaming up with ShoeDazzle Cares, a charity initiative, to raise money for St. Jude's Children's hospital.
Tisdale selected a black ankle bootie, the sales of which will benefit the hospital.
There is a reason Ashley Tisdale picked a boot, besides the fact that it's currently boot weather.
"I'm such a boots person," she said. "I love how it has multiple straps, and since it's all-black, it goes with everything. It's easy to pair with anything like an over-sized sweater and leather leggings."
The charity is close to her heart for many reasons, but one is really personal. Her grandmother and her aunt both lost their lives to cancer.
She said of her choice, "It's a tribute to my grandmother's passing. And when I chose the charity, they said they would love for me to actually spend some time at the charity before I give them any money, which I thought was really admirable."
The experience she had at St. Jude's really opened Ashley Tisdale's eyes to the charity's urgent purpose.
"To see what they do on a daily basis is an amazing thing," she said.
"They pay for everything from housing and food, and everything is so that the child will get better. When I visited, I was like, 'I'll do whatever it takes.' It was so heart-breaking."
What a great charity!
