Eva Longoria is one hot humanitarian

17 June 2011

Eva Longoria proved this week that not only is she a smoking hot actress, but she also has a heart of gold, as she attended two humanitarian events this week.

On Wednesday the Desperate Housewives star was pictured at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund Awards in Washington, looking radiant in a light jade green figure hugging dress and long chestnut hair. Then on Thursday she stayed in Washington's Capitol Hill to attend a press conference for the Children's Act for Responsible Employment, better known as the CARE Act.

The CARE act is an issue close to Eva's heart and aims to raise the age and working standards for migrant child farm workers, of whom there are apparently 400,000 who work on American farms every year. She has also produced a documentary on the subject entitled 'The Harvest/La Cosecha' which follows three migrant child farm workers and their families as they travel across the United States following the crops that they harvest.

The man behind the CARE act, Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard claims that Eva's appearance at the event made all the difference including increasing the number of co-sponsers who have signed on to the legislation since it was first introduced in 2007;

"The difference Longoria has made to this bill is huge," Roybal-Allard told The Huffington Post, following a packed press conference with Longoria outside the Capitol. "Before Eva, we would hold press conferences for this bill, but they were nothing like this."

Meanwhile you can next see the lovely Eva Longoria in historical drama Cristiada, starring Andy Garcia and Peter O'Toole out sometime this year.
