Big Stars, Big Giving: Julianne Moore and fighting poverty for Save the Children

Editor's Note: In an American Morning original series, "Big Stars, Big Giving," CNN National Correspondent Alina Cho looks at celebrity philanthropy and how these big stars can make a big impact. Through one-on-one interviews with Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, Edward Norton, Julianne Moore and Justin Bieber, she shares what causes have become their passions, and how you can get involved. The one-hour special debuts December 24th and airs again on December 25th.

Julianne Moore is an artist ambassador for Save the Children. Growing up an “army brat,” Moore lived in various locations around the country and saw firsthand the inequality that exists in education.

An avid reader, she also recognizes the important of literacy. To that end, Moore – a children’s author herself – travels to rural areas to read to children.

She is committed to fighting poverty in the US – where one in five children live below the poverty level.
