Based on the children’s book, “A Wrinkle in Time” stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mindy Kaling, and Storm Reid as the heroine. Jennifer Lee, who wrote and co-directed “Frozen” with Chris Buck, penned the adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 novel. Ava DuVernay, the director of “Selma” and the Oscar-nominated documentary “13th,” was hired by Disney for the gig in early 2016.

Simmons has been actively expanding her philanthropic efforts managed out of the KLS Foundation. She is also very active in the philanthropic field, most recently with her Kimora

Lee Simmons Scholarship Fund working closely with FIDM, FIT and Rush Philanthropic to fund scholarships for students pursuing careers in fashion. Additionally, Kimora has

partnered with non-profit group Unmentionables to provide undergarments, feminine hygiene products and sexual health education to refugees and other displaced populations.

 

Special invites were extended to the children served by local LA nonprofits championing disadvantaged youth including A Place Called Home, Create Now, Phenomenal Angels and California Children’s Academy. We salute you KLS and happy that you have joined the sleuth of celebrities that are starting to do spontaneous efforts to support today’s youth and their families to dream and succeed.
