Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox Lend Support to Congo

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Sheryl Crowe all came out last night in support of the women in the Congo.

The women showed up as guest hosts to the OmniPeace event with founder Mary Fanaro, having one goal in mind: "Stamp Out Violence Against Women and Girls of the Congo."

Courteney Cox, Jen, and Sheryl Crow all spoke up about their dedication to last night’s event, which was also attended by Demi Moore, Marisa Tomei, and Nicole Richie.

Nicole told People about her new outlook, saying, "I'm all about making people aware and showing them what the problem is. It's impossible to turn your back on something like this. It's really hard to complain about anything when you hear the stories of these women and children and their torture."

Jennifer said, "I am extremely lucky. But these women and girls need help – it makes you think." Courteney continued, "We can do something about this. I want to bring awareness to this."

Sheryl Crowe added, "I know I have a responsibility. As a mom, the biggest thrill for me, but most humbling role is raising my kid as a humanitarian. I want him to grow up feeling he can do something for people less fortunate."

Last night’s event was held at STK in Los Angeles, and was sponsored by Kitson, who provided adorable shirts for the ladies to wear in support of the cause.

OmniPeace will donate 25 percent of the profits from the sale of the T-shirts to UNICEF & V-Day Foundation to build the City of Joy, a rehabilitation center and safe community for Congolese women girls. Tees are available on for $78.
