Nicole Richie Donates Her Baby Shower Gifts

 Nicole Richie is using her Wizard of Oz-themed baby shower to benefit charity.

The Simple Life star and boyfriend Joel Madden, who are due to have their first child in January, will donate baby gifts to 100 expectant families in need through the newly-formed Richie Madden Foundation through the Los Angeles Free Clinic.

“It’s really sweet,” says shower guest Rashida Jones, of NBC’s The Office.

“With all the swag these days, we’re given so much stuff it’s almost wasteful, and it’s kind of nice when we’re giving to each other to give to someone else.”

While many friends at Sunday’s shower in Beverly Hills donated gifts to the charity, they also brought gifts for Nicole and Joel to keep – including one children’s book from every guest to help build the baby’s library.

    IT IS FINALLY NICE TO SEE SOMEONE THAT CAN GIVE TO PEOPLE WHO REALLY NEED HELP. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER WITH 2 KIDS, AND I KNOW HOW BABY STUFF IS REALLY EXPENSIVE. AND BY THE WAY CONGRATS!

    Why didnt she just tell people to make a donation to the charity of her choice instead of all those people probably picking out stuff for her that they thought they would want… then giving it away. They might have bought more practical things if they knew it was for underprivledged families instead of like $150 baby shirts that they grow out of in a month…

    I was wondering why she was having a shower… Now that I know why, I think it is grrreat and so glad to hear it. I work in social services and when my sister had a baby last March, we decorated the party with all items that I donated to a local charitabloy organization serving mothers and their babies. They were shocked and pleasantly suprised to receive the many baby products and toys!

    What a nice deed. Too bad for the people that spent the hundreds of dollars thinking that the couple would actually use it, though.

    im sure a lot of celeb moms donate things to different charities. they dont have to have a press conference about it.

    I’m rly glad to see she’s becoming such a good person. It’s not that she wasn’t before, but she’s rly getting her priorities straight and becoming rly humble. & obviously that was rly nice of her =]
