Actress Doris Roberts is planning to increase her charity efforts once her comedy Everybody Loves Raymond comes to an end.

The longrunning sitcom will come to an end next year (05), and while Roberts hopes she'll continue to act, she also plans to continue her charity work.

She says, "I have a lot of things coming my way.

"I will continue to go to foreign countries as a cultural ambassador for the US government and speak to very poor children about hope.

"I'm also a chairperson for CHILDREN AFFECTED BY AIDS FOUNDATION and have done that for 13 years now, so I have a lot on my plate."
