Meghan Markle celebrates 40th birthday with inspiring news
August 5, 2021
Meghan Markle celebrated her 40th birthday yesterday announcing 40X40, a new Archewell charitable campaign promoting mentorship for women who are trying to get back into the workforce after COVID.
In video with friend and actress,Melissa McCarthy she said;
“It’s my 40th birthday, and I’ve got an idea,” Meghan says, sitting behind a desk, while her beagle Guy snoozes by the fireplace. After a few suggestions from McCarthy—a photoshoot under a tree, matching tattoos, a yacht party and a Suits reunion—Meghan shares what she had in mind. “Because I’m turning 40, I’m asking 40 friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help mentor a woman who is mobilizing back into the workforce. Over two million in the U.S. alone and tens of millions around the world have lost their jobs due to COVID. And I think if we all do it, and all commit to some sort of service, we can create a ripple effect.”
“Yes times forty,” McCarthy responds. “Is it okay if I still do it in the hat?”
