Screen Shot 2017-03-15 at 12.36.45 PM Kate Linder is the well-known actress who plays Esther Valentine on the Young and the Restless, the #1 rated soap opera in the U.S. and Canada.

She is also a philanthropist, known for her hard work to raise money for a number of charities. Charity means a lot to Kate, who has spent decades helping others.

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 to benefit a variety of charities.

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