London (ANI): Demi Moore beat Kevin Bacon in an online contest called 'Pepsi Refresh Celebrity Challenge', to bag 156,250 pounds for her anti-sex slave charity.
The cash has gone to 'The DNA Foundation', founded by Moore and husband Ashton Kutcher. The Ghost star received the most public votes in the poll. Moore's foundation plans to forward the prize money to the Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS), which helps women who have suffered sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.
"I am thrilled that GEMS has gained powerful allies in Demi Moore and The DNA Foundation and honoured to be the beneficiary of a Pepsi Refresh Grant," the Daily Star quoted GEMS founder/Executive Director Rachel Lloyd, as saying.
He added: "The grant will support us in the important work of transforming survivors of domestic trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation into future leaders."
Meanwhile, Bacon''s charity 'SixDegrees.org', which is presently helping Haiti earthquake victims, will receive a 62,500-pound grant.
