Today is (was) Audrey Hepburn's birthday, and she would have been 82. Some of you might know that my favourite film is Breakfast At Tiffany's, and thanks to people constantly donating items with her face on it, I've ended up with quite a collection of A.H. memorobilia.
A lot of people don't know much more about her than her movies, but for most of life she worked as an ambassador to UNICEF, and as a result of all the work she did for them she was awarded the Presidential Freedom Award - which is the highest civilian award in the USA - in 1992. She visited places all over the world in her role as ambassador, including Turkey, Ecuador, Venezuela, Guatamala, Ethiopia, Kenya, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Thailand.
Happy Birthday Audrey Hepburn!
