Lindsay Lohan to Mentor Young Girls?
Lindsay Lohan is desperate to improve her image before she goes back to court next month … and omg! has learned how she plans to do it.
The “Liz & Dick” actress is currently in talks to donate her time to Trinity Athletic, a non-profit gym where underprivileged girls learn to tumble and cheer in Johns Creek, Georgia – and it is set to happen before March 18, when she’s due in Judge Stephanie Sautner’s Santa Monica, California, court to face three charges, including lying to police.
Kourtney Calano, the founder of the Baby & I Foundation in Atlanta, tells omg! exclusively that after Lohan generously gifted her charity with $50,000 in 2011, she reached out to the actress’ team “about mentoring young girls at a nearby gym, where the owner has given a lot of her cheerleading hopefuls free grants to be able to cheer and follow their dreams, some even Olympic hopefuls. This is something that is still in the working stages, where Lindsay will be a possible mentor to these young girls for a day to uplift them and let them know she too has struggled and overcome so much adversity in life."
Another source tells omg! that the 26-year-old initially offered a monetary donation, but Trinity Athletic instead felt her presence at the non-profit and the press it would bring to their cause would be worth much more.
Indeed, Lohan is eager to get some positive press as the days creep closer to her March 18 trial. On Friday, her new lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, filed court documents asking the judge to “slow track” the case since Lohan is “pursing and participating in certain activities, which will benefit her and afford her more of an opportunity to be a productive and responsible person and contributor to society.”
Can Lindsay really change her spots? We can only hope so … but actions speak louder than words.
