Finally I added pictures of Sandy appearance last August 29 in New Orleans, on occasion of fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. As many of you may know, Sandy, a part-time New Orleans resident, donated money to help rebuild the school and to open a student health clinic. She appeared at weekend events to pay tribute to those behind the hurricane recovery effort.

And in another set of mugginess, what is happening with the Be the One, Restore the Gulf campaign? It is looking as if Bullock and friends were duped by Big Oil.
Reports are now suggesting a connection between the campaign to save the region and BP. What is going on behind the scenes here? In a post at Huffington Post. It seems Sandra was alerted about the campaign ties, and her representatives will ask for her participation on PSA be removed:
Ms. Bullock was originally contacted through her attorney to be a part of the PSA in order to promote awareness of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. At no time was she made aware that any organization, oil company or otherwise had influence over Women of the Storm or its message. We have immediately asked for her participation in the PSA be removed until the facts can be determined. Her commitment to the Gulf region has been apparent for many years and she will continue to pursue opportunities that will bring awareness and support to the plight of the Gulf region.
Much like the Gulf Coast, Sandra Bullock certainly knows a thing or two about being blindsided.
The Oscar winner has joined forces with the likes of Blake Lively, Lenny Kravitz, Dave Matthews and other famous folks to encourage others to sign a petition demanding that leaders take the necessary steps to restore and protect the Gulf Coast in the wake of the recent oil spill.
“What can you offer?” asks Sandra. “Your voice. Speak up.”
Sign it. Share it. Be the One. Visit restorethegulf.com to add your name to the petition demanding complete restoration of America’s Gulf.
Sandra have four very interesting projects in the pipeline. She’ll probably star (and be listed as a producer) on all four and two of them are being produced through her production company, Fortis.
Here’s the list:
“One of the Guys”: a romantic comedy about a tomboy guy’s gal (Sandra Bullock) who makes her BMFs uneasy when she starts to act more like a girl than a guy.
“The Sprinkler Queen”: Sandra may play a Hollywood female agent who tracks her AWOL action star back to his small Wisconsin town to lure him back to work.
“Kiss & Tango”: Sandra may play a woman goes to Argentina, falls in love with the culture and an Argentinian man and finds herself.
“Jingle”: Santa’s nastiest elf is left behind at a spoiled brat’s house and has to reform the kid in order to get back to to the north pole. We presume she may play the kid’s mother?

Ladies, we know you look to your favorite celebs to scope the hottest styles, so why not try two of Sandra Bullock’s favorite Coach bags on for size! The actress has teamed up with Coach so that a percentage of proceeds from the sales of both the Kristen Leather Tote ($598) and the Madison Leather Hippie ($358) will go towards Beauty Bus Foundation, a charity that provides in-home beauty and grooming treatments free of charge to “homebound terminally and chronically ill individuals and their primary caregivers.”
Sandra gives generously to a variety of organizations — she wrote million-dollar checks to the American Red Cross to help victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks and to help relief efforts in Asian countries affected by the 2004 tsunami, plus she donated tens of thousands to help rebuild Warren Easton Senior High School in New Orleans’ after Hurricane Katrina, just to name of few of her philanthropic efforts — but this is a cause that you can help her out with and look good while doing it!

Sandra Bullock is reportedly set to star in a third film in the ‘Speed’ franchise.
Producers are planning to approach the 44-year-old actress – who shot to fame starring alongside Keanu Reeves in the 1994 action movie – to appear in a follow-up, despite the failure of the original sequel ‘Speed 2: Cruise Control’.
A source said: “Producers are looking at a lot of old franchises in order to secure box office hits and ‘Speed’ is just one of those. Sandra is still a popular star and another ‘Speed’ movie is there for her should she want to do it. It would be a modern twist on the old theme.”
Keanu – who turned down the opportunity to star in the 1997 sequel and was replaced by Jason Patric – recently spoke about the possibility in starring in another movie in the high-octane franchise.
He said: “Never say never, right? Sandra and I could probably do something pretty groovy with that.
“Maybe if we were travelling through Europe, maybe on the Serengeti, and there was some kind of mishap.
“It could be like a world tour. Or maybe we could go to Polynesia and then take us all across the world. Maybe if we shot for like four months and we have like a week off in every country, telling this kind of adventurous story for this couple.”
