Heiress-socialite Paris Hilton is throwing her weight — and her wallet — behind American troops by becoming the Official Celebrity Ambassador for the new initiative from United Service Organizations: Support Our Troops (USO).
Hilton has teamed up with the military charity’s new Songs for Soldiers campaign. The charity aims to present every American soldier – who is in active duty in Afghanistan or Iraq – with a MP3 music player. In launch event in New York City of Thursday, Hilton held a pre-loaded MP3 player that will be given out to 180,000 troops serving overseas. Each of the players is going to be loaded with songs sung by artists who have supported the cause by donating their music.
