Reese Witherspoon Honors Dolly’s Birthday With Donation to Imagination Library
Go Dolly Parton, it’s your birthday. Reese Witherspoon is going to party (and donate) like it’s your birthday
The award-winning actress has been a very vocal, long-time fan of Parton since the hills of Hollywood called her away from her home in Tennessee to become a mega-superstar. In honor of Parton turning the big 7-2, Witherspoon thought of no better gift to present to the country music icon than to show her charitable side to the Imagination Library, Parton’s very own organization.
“Few people in this world have touched my heart like Dolly. She has been my inspiration all my life. Her kindness, her humility, her beautiful spirit. Help me wish @DollyParton Happy Birthday!!! 🎂🎂🎂 In honor of this extra special Southern gal, 100% of today’s profits at @DraperJames will go to Dolly’s charity, @imaginationlibrary. 💕 Dolly! #HBD 🎉,” Witherspoon wrote next to an adorable picture of the two sharing a smile while holding a signature ‘What Would Dolly Do’ bag from Draper James.
Witherspoon started Draper James with the intention of spreading Southern fashion around in its charming and sweet ways, with stores selling gingham-patterned dresses and adorable graphic totes. Even the actress herself sports looks from the Draper James line from time to time, inspiring the femininity and beauty of all kind women. The Imagination Library supports children in their reading development by gifting young ones with books from birth until grade school in select areas. The program was started by Parton herself back in 1995, and has sent millions of books across the country to lucky boys and girls hoping to learn new words before they head off to school.
Fans can head to any of the four Draper James storefront locations or online to pick up a special item for their wardrobe and donate all of the proceeds to the Imagination Library today only (1/19).
