Nicole & Joel to set up a charity gift registry website

Nicole Richie & Joel Madden are set to launch a new website for their charity the Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation, which will allow poor families across the US to set up “wish-lists” to provide for their babies.

The site will work like a gift registry, with mums-to-be selecting items from list of options then donors buying the items for them.

Nicole explained yesterday: “We take for granted the basic necessities. For some families, it’s a serious struggle.

“This is one way to ease the financial burden, and help new babies have a good start in life.

“We are only working with companies and products that Joel and I would use. We’re checking every product out for safety - and all products are BPA-free.”

The Foundation’s director Bruce Richman added: “Nicole saw that even a clean blanket was out of reach for some of these new moms so she wanted to figure out an efficient way to connect them with companies and individuals who want to help.”

Nicole and Joel established the charity ahead of the arrival of their daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden in January.
