Give Back with Giada De Laurentiis

In her new app issue, the celebrity chef talks about supporting those in need

With the support of other famous friends, De Laurentiis is giving back this season.

With Black Friday gone and Cyber Monday passed, people are (hopefully) turning their attention to helping out those in need.

Giada de Laurentiis is a big supporter of volunteerism and in this week’s issue of her new app she is featuring a guest blog post from her friend and fellow Food Network star Trisha Yearwood, who is hitting the road on behalf of Habitat for Humanity.

In addition to Yearwood's post, this week’s issue also includes an article about De Laurentiis and her family’s support of the Melanoma Foundation, and a gift guide article that includes a list of De Laurentiis' favorite gifts that benefit charities. For a complete look at the app, visit the Apple Newsstand.
