Georgia has truly dedicated her life to the happiness of children. It is the through line of every one of her days, her decisions and everything she does. She has chosen to combine her entertainment work with her philanthropy work to, not only share positive messages on camera but, to have a platform from which she can speak and act, on behalf of children, when the cameras are turned off. Nothing makes her happier than putting a smile on a child's face. She is putting her heart and mind into finding innovative and sustainable ways to put, and keep, smiles on the faces of children all around the world.
