For several years now, OneXOne — an international charity that continues to implement health care, water, food, education and entertainment initiatives that enhance the well-being of our world’s less fortunate children — has teamed up with Academy Award winner Matt Damon to spread awareness about their mission to those who have funds to spare. The movie and 30 Rock guest star will once again lend his hosting talents to their 3rd Annual OneXOne Fundraiser, happening on Wednesday, October 27th at NYC’s glitzy, architecturally-awesome Capitale.
Focused on offering a top-rate evening of entertainment (including performances by Collective Soul, 9 year old pianist-composer Ethan Bortnick and an award winning children’s choir), OneXOne will also share details about their work with Partners in Health to create a new Haiti hospital pediatric wing as well as offer a keynote speaking presentation by Paul Farmer (a co-founder of Partners in Health).

GiveLove co-founders Patricia Arquette and Rosetta Getty, along with Jacqui Getty, welcomed guests to a private LA residence for the 1st Annual GiveLove to Haiti Dinner on Sunday, August 29th, 2010. The event’s mission was to raise awareness for GiveLove — a collaborative project to rebuild communities, homes and livelihoods for displaced Haitian earthquake survivors.
The exclusive dinner, which drew out “giving” celebs including Maria Bello, Odette Yusman, Rose McGowan and Rachel Bilson, featured Maestro DOBEL Diamond Tequila, which guests enjoyed throughout the nights.

Bracelet which is created by Haitian artisans is available at BlanketAmerica.com; all funds for the bracelet and for the GiveLove event benefit the Haiti relief efforts.
Most people when they go for a picnic in the park opt for a simple sandwich, avoiding the need for any cutlery. Not so Medium star Patricia Arquette, who obviously likes to make eating out a real performance. In fact, it was an impressive piece of education for her seven-year-old daughter Harlow as she enjoyed a Chinese meal complete with chopsticks.
The 42-year-old star was spotted giving the challenging culinary lesson in Cross Creek, Malibu. And the little girl obviously loved every minute of it. Patricia's husband, actor Thomas Jane, was not there to enjoy the outing perhaps as he is currently promoting season two of his hit comedy drama Hung.
The couple have been going through difficult times recently, with Arquette filing for divorce last year, stating irreconcilable differences. But the pair have agreed to give the marriage a second try. Like chopsticks, tricky to start with but worth sticking at...
