As far as celeb moms go, famous humanitarian and eco-friendly Sandra Bullock is always willing to help out others in her community and throughout the country. When she decided to adopt Louis, many were pleasantly surprised she had decided to take on the role of celebrity mom as a single girl. The green celebrity mom dished out $14,000 to get a gift for her soon to be 1-year-old son on October 27th, 2011 — an Andy Warhol painting. An avid charity supporter, the star of movies such as Speed and Miss Congeniality, did not hesitate to have her people buy little baby Louis only the best. But don’t worry — she was not spending recklessly or lavishly on an infant who would not be able to appreciate it. Bullock’s agents attended an AIDS Research charity benefit auction where several big name paintings were being auctioned for proceeds to benefit the art auction charity and they actually bought the art for him as a collectible investment.
Green celebrity mom Sandra Bullock has helped various charities over the years including the Red Cross and Partners in Health. The charitable foundation Partners in Health works to help families in countries throughout the world have access to medical and social services.
Baby Louis was originally supposed to be adopted by both Bullock and her ex-husband, reality TV star Jesse James, before he started on his infidelity trail with the likes of tattoo artist and reality TV star Kat Von D. While Bullock was clearly hurt from the events that took place surrounding her betrayed marriage and subsequent divorce, she pressed on with the adoption of baby Louis, a baby from New Orleans, Louisiana.
The expensive painting purchased for baby Louis was an original Andy Warhol painting named ‘Peaches’ and sold for $14,000 — a price many folks in the art world feel was a well-priced bargain for what she spent.
The non-profit organization called amFAR is the charity originally founded by the late screen legend, Elizabeth Taylor. The group strives to tackle the medical and social issues created by the pandemic outbreak of HIV and AIDS that proliferated in the 1980s.
In addition to the charitable gift painting purchased for her adopted son, Sandy is also the proud owner of a very green restaurant in Texas. To maintain an eco-friendly focus in her building design, she replaced harmful materials often found in restaurant supplies with eco-friendly materials that do little to no harm to her patrons and the environment.
