Jennifer Aniston goes to Baja; helping a Tijuana orphanage

Jennifer Aniston was recently in Cabo San Lucas where she spent her birthday and did an interview with Access Hollywood. She apparently helps out a group called Friends of El Faro that does charity work south of the border. One of their projects is with a Tijuana orphanage and school called Casa Hogar Sion.

Aniston, who stayed at the Palmilla resort , helped launch the $95 Farita doll – presumably named so on behalf of the Faro group – to raise money for the orphanage (though I can’t seem to find a picture of the doll anywhere).

Aniston gave a plug for the orphanage: “They have been given a lot of love and they’re getting educated, which is the most important thing for them,” she told Access Hollywood.

And for Mexican tourism: “Mexico is really hurting right now because of the swine flu and the drug trafficking and all this sort kind of stuff – but it’s not all of Mexico. These people survive on us coming down and spending money and coming here to these beautiful places,” she told Access Hollywood.

Joining Jennifer in Baja, according to the UPI, were Courtney Cox, Jason Bateman, Sheryl Crow, Kathy Najimy and Gerard Butler. And it looks like the Mexican military did their part to keep away the paparazzi boats.

  1. Thanks for sharing this news…. Jenifer being an incredible actor is a good human as well. I appreciate celebs doing charity and participating in the causes meant for humanity. I certainly believe that not only by paying an exorbitant amount but also by sharing their presence these celebs can make a big difference. And fortunately, I’d also stayed in the Palmilla resort as my tour planners my stay there when I was on a business trip.
    Well done Jenifer…..I and hope everyone who knows about this will appreciate your effort and imitative.

  2. Thank you for your comments, Ericson. The Palmilla looks like a lovely place.

  3. There have been heaps of horrible remarks about Jennifer Aniston doing the rounds on the web recently. I believe she looks wonderful, especially following losing a few kilos.

  4. Jennifer Aniston is really great and she’s so strong I really think she’s just such an inspiration to all.
