While on the red carpet at the 3rd Annual Rock the Kasbah Fundraising Gala at Vibiana in Los Angeles, California Monday night, Lindsay told one camera crew about her plans to do a BBC documentary in India in November.
Lindsay says she was inspired by Richard Branson, the billionaire businessman who hosted the Virgin Unite event which benefits the Eve Branson Foundation.
“I am a very big fan of the things that Richard Branson does,” Lindsay said. “I met him in Dubai (at the opening of the Atlantis, The Palm in December 2008, I guess). I really respect that he incorporates charity in all that he does.”
Lindsay says that she will go to India before Thanksgiving for the BBC documentary — but they are still working out the times and dates.
“It all happened actually when I was in Dubai. I like to support charities. I think it’s important to have a voice when you do have one and you can make a difference,” Lindsay said. “It’s on the trafficking of children and women in India.”
Lindsay said she is kinda nervous about her upcoming trip to India, but not as nervous as her mom Dina Lohan.
“I’m a little nervous but I”m excited to do something like that. My mom is actually a lot more scared than I am. She doesn’t want me to go, she’s scared,” Lindsay said.
But for Lindsay, it will be worth it because it’s a good cause.
“I think that if you are in a position where you can say something people will listen to and make a difference — no matter what else gets said because I know I deal with that more than most people at this point — I think you should use it,” Lindsay said. “I think you should use your voice for the right reason. There’s no reason you shouldn’t. That’s what validates you at the end of the day. That when you get home and ‘oh, wow, I did something really good today. I feel good about myself’
no matter what – anything that happens. That’s what settles in.
I think what Lindsay said above is perfect. You, go girl!
