Kate is the celebrity spokesperson for the ALS Association, the pre-eminent leader in the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Kate also became the national spokesperson for March of Dimes Canada’s Conductive Education® program in 2012, when she saw firsthand the significant, life-changing impacts CE has, blending elements of education and rehabilitation to help children living with neuro-motor disabilities become more mobile, independent and self-confident.

She can be found most holidays serving food to the hungry and homeless at the Los Angeles Mission. And throughout the year, she hosts afternoon teas and other activities to benefit a variety of charities.

Kate has really taken serving tea and charity to another level. A much higher level.
