What Zooey Do To Help The Community?
Zooey Deschanel has done many things to make the world a better place such as supporting charities like Alliance For Children's Rights, Clothes Off Our Back, J/P Haitian Relief Organization and many more. But the one that stood out for me was to help young girls who were being cyber bullied become happier. This wasnt an organization or a charity.
The contibution was to help young girls who were being cyber bullied become happier. She taught young girls to become stronger, feel better about themselfs and stand up for themselfs.
The place where the contribution was made was in no particular place. It was made from the TV series New Girl where she is the main character Jessica Day.

I think the possible reason for Zooey to contribute to this was because maybe when she was younger, she used to be made fun of or was bullied and that made her feel bad about herself. She probably had no celebrity to that had the same problem and could look up to as her role model. Thats why she made the decision of being a role model to other young girls around the world.
