Actress Sophia Bush got back to basics during a recent charity trip to Ethiopia after spending her travels “off the grid”.
In the accompanying caption, she writes, These kids now have clean water thanks to charitywater
The philanthropist and former One Tree Hill star headed to Africa to raise awareness about the need to provide safe drinking water for residents in the poverty-stricken country as part of her work with the Charity Water non-profit organization.
She returned to her native U.S. this week (ends10May13) and logged back on to her Twitter.com blog on Friday (10May13) to share a photo of the children she had spent time with.
In the accompanying caption, she writes, “These kids now have clean water thanks to charitywater. I just spent the last week off the grid in Ethiopia visiting with them, and many more communities. Water changes everything”.
When Sophia Bush began dating Dan Fredinburg a few months ago, friends say the actress knew the 31-year-old Google program manager was a keeper. “They’re both so passionate about the world,” a Bush confidant tells Us Weekly exclusively in its May 6 issue. “It’s for real!”
Fredinburg, who has photographed some of the planet’s tallest peaks for Google Maps, “is super intelligent,” says the insider, “and she really likes him.”
The former Partners star bonds with her beau over social activism, and Bush is already gushing to friends about their future together. “She’s mentioned wanting to marry him,” an insider reveals, “and I won’t be surprised if she gets engaged!”
Bush, who was briefly married to her One Tree Hill costar Chad Michael Murray in 2005, was previously in an on-and-off relationship with costar Austin Nichols. Following their 2012 split, the Hatfields & McCoys actress told Us she was taking the time to get to know herself.
“I don’t think you can really, truly be the partner you want to be until you know on an absolute level that you are a complete person on your own. I think that’s something all women deserve to know,” the 30-year-old brunette said in August 2012. “So many fairytales we read as children — and the love stories we watch on TV when we’re older — tell us that we’re not enough unless we have man. And it’s like, ‘No, homie! You can be a bonus when I have time for you in my life.’”

The price of empathy can be as little as $1.50 a day. Several of Hollywood’s biggest bold-faced names — including Ben Affleck, Josh Groban, Sophia Bush and Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden – will take on the challenge of living on just $1.50 worth of food and drink to raise awareness for global poverty starting Apr. 29.
As part of the annual Live Below the Line initiative, the celebrities will join Cooking Channel personalities Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos in a bid to encourage their fans to learn more about the extreme poverty that is taking place around the globe.
The campaign hopes to raise awareness of other global organizations as well, including Opportunity International, World Food Program USA, Happy Hearts Fund, and UNICEF, among others.
Biden, who serves as the Chairman of World Food Program USA, added that his own travels inspired him to get involved with the campaign in the first place: “I’ve seen firsthand how school feeding can change the life of a child in my travels to places like the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. At just 25 cents a meal, school meals have the power to break the cycle of hunger, giving children the chance to learn, grow and a reach their full potential.”
Other celebrities who have been involved in the campaign over the past three years include Hugh Jackman, Malin Akerman, Minka Kelly and Nick Lachey.
