Happy 30th Birthday, Eliza Dushku! (PHOTOS)

Welcome to your thirties, Eliza Dushku! All the Buffy star wants this year is donations to a worthy cause.

In fact, by today she was hoping to have raised $30,000 to put toward building a recovery center in Uganda for former child soldiers thanks to a lifelong affection towards the continent thanks to her professor mom. And as Eliza exclusively told Celebuzz, “She and I went to Uganda and we started to get deeper and hear the stories of these kids who were abducted in the night, forced to kill their family members so they didn’t have anyone to come home to. It’s the ultimate manipulation where they’re taking these kids hostage.”
