Paris Hilton Postpones Philanthropic Trip to Rwanda


Paris Hilton's philanthropic trip to Rwanda has been postponed.

"Due to the restructuring of the Playing For Good Foundation, the philanthropic trip to Rwanda that the foundation had previously planned with Paris has been postponed," the children's charity said in an October 25 statement.

A staffer for the organization's spokesman Andy Gelb said he was unavailable for comment. The 26-year-old socialite, who has promised to use her celebrity status for good causes, was to have traveled to the central African nation in November.

She would have visited schools and health clinics. Hilton announced the mission in September, several months after serving a 23-day jail sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

Speaking to Newsweek Magazine, Hilton said "There are a lot of bad people in L.A. Before, my life was about having fun, going to parties - it was a fantasy," she said. "But when I had time to reflect, I felt empty inside. I want to leave a mark on the world."
