Actress Mena Suvari is calling on her fans to support a campaign to end famine in east Africa.
The American Beauty star has urged her followers on to donate cash to Unicef's drive to raise money for the drought-hit region after United Nations officials declared famine in two areas of Somalia earlier this week (18Jul11).
Taking to her blog on the website, Suvari re-posted a note from a fan containing a link to Unicef's online donation page and the message: "Help Humanity Half a million children are going to die of malnutrition if we don't act."
