The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund recently launched a website in honor of the iconic actress and humanitarian.  The beloved star of classic movies like Sabrina, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady is highly recognized for her work; with an impressive resume of  Academy, Golden Globe, Emmy, Tony and even Grammy Awards. Yet, Audrey always considered her work as a UNICEF International Goodwill Ambassador her greatest role. The beauty of Audrey’s legacy is that even years after her untimely passing in 1993, we still have the opportunity to know and appreciate her gifts. Her dynamic career is documented in the Janson Media title, Audrey Hepburn Remembered from The Hollywood Collection.

Audrey Hepburn dedicated her last five years to never-ending humanitarian work, traveling throughout the developing world on behalf of UNICEF and presenting to the rest of the world a provocative vision of children in pain, struggling to survive, or just fighting for basic human rights. In 1994, the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund was created by her sons, Sean and Luca, and long time companion, Robert Wolders, in order to continue her work. Today, the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund supports many organizations around the world dedicated to helping improve the lives of children through various programs and initiatives.

On the new website, viewers can see a detailed timeline on Hepburn’s dynamic life, acquire more information on the children’s fund and/or make donations, shop for one of a kind gifts and stay updated on new developments. From March 13- May 10, 2009, Timeless Audrey, a traveling exhibit based on the life and career of actress, icon and humanitarian, will make its European premiere at Berlin’s Hauptbahnhof, the city’s main railway station.
