Not blinking an eye as she transitions into life as a single mother, Ashlee Simpson took young son Bronx out to the 2nd Annual Annual Milk And Bookies Story Time Celebration in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon (March 20).
Recently separated from Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz, the "Pieces of Me" singer made her way over to the Skirball Cultural Center venue while attending the good-hearted weekend get-together with her little one.
With other stars such as Jack Black, Rainn Wilson, Julie Bown, Josh Holloway and Jason Biggs in attendance, the Milk + Bookies event offers boy and girls "the opportunity to select, purchase and inscribe books that are then donated to their peers who do not have access to books of their own. The fun-filled events feature music, story time and, of course, milk and cookies."
With the organization having been founded by Meredith Alexander in 2004, Milk + Bookies has the mission of "combining two essential and worthwhile efforts: literacy promotion and service learning. While the book donations are imperative to our mission, just as important is instilling the seed of giving into each host and their young guests, sparking feelings of importance, self-confidence and the desire to give and give again."
