Actress Sanaa Lathan is looking to spread some holiday cheer through her newly launched foundation.

The 44-year-old star took to Instagram to announce that her foundation would be throwing a party for youth in foster care.

Just a few months ago I launched Sanaa Lathan Foundation!

This holiday season I am working with the HerShe Group to throw a holiday party for some very deserving foster youth. Please join me by donating to the #SanaaLathanFoundation to help us make this possible! LINK IN BIO: http://bit.ly/SLFound

To show my appreciation, I’m giving away a headshot SIGNED BY ME to a randomly selected donor each week – all you have to do is donate $20 or more using the link in bio and share your donation on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter so your friends can join in.
Thank for your support!

According to the official website, the mission of The Sanaa Lathan Foundation is to “empower young women aging out of foster care to transition into adult independence through improved self-esteem and access to higher education.”

The foundation is looking to collect a goal of $5,000 on support of the event.
