Actress Scarlett Johansson has been busy doing her bit for the needy. She has been encouraging people to shell out money on things such as a goat for a needy family in the developing world, training a teacher and school books.


“I spent an amazing day with some young girls at an Oxfam-funded school in Uttar Pradesh,” the Mirror quoted Johansson as saying.

“They were all from the lowest Dalit caste, but their education had filled them with ambition, self worth and hope for the future. Every child deserves that kind of start in life — and gifts like desks and chairs, school equipment and even the school buildings themselves can provide this. And that’s why I am asking for us all to give these kinds of gifts this Christmas,” she added.
