For Immediate Release

NEW YORK/EWORLDWIRE/Oct. 29, 2010 ---

Actress Halle Berry and Jae Je Simmons, Screen Actors Guild's New York Executive Director, are the newest recipients of Attitudes by Renée's "Life is Half Full" Attitudes Award. In early October, the two women received a sterling silver Life is Half Full pendant necklace, designed by Renée Greenstein, president of Attitudes by Renée, along with a personal, hand-written note from the QVC celebrity in honor of their achievements.

"Halle and Jae Je give so much to others who need support to keep going. Their message of courage and hope touches me deeply," Renée says. "I am thrilled to continue our national awards program with women who share my attitude about life and living, and who set a very positive example for others."


Cited as a "remarkable advocate for member rights," Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Executive Jae Je Simmons oversees the group's New York division and serves as regional director for SA's Boston and Philadelphia branches. Simmons joined the group in 1998 as Executive Director, Affirmative Action. In that role, she promoted diversity programs and outreach. She is an accomplished journalist with work published in Essence and Black Enterprise magazines. In her daily work, Simmons is a vocal mentor to Guild members, who value her wisdom and business acumen.


Academy Award-winning actress and film producer Halle Berry is among Hollywood's highest paid stars, but she has not forgotten about women who have very little. Following a highly publicized traffic accident in 2000, Berry's community service experience led her to become involved with a number of charitable causes, including Jenesse Center, the oldest domestic violence intervention program in South Los Angeles. Her Halle Berry Golf Classic has raised thousands of dollars for the center. A new initiative, the "What a Little Love Can Do" project, is raising money to completely remodel 15 apartments within one of Jenesse Center's transitional housing shelters. Berry kicked off the project by funding two of the 15 remodels.


The "Life is Half Full" Attitudes Award is presented monthly by Renée Greenstein to two women who help empower others to overcome difficult life circumstances with grace and courage. "By helping to empower their friends, these women are showing that attitude is everything in life."
