Meghan Markle is celebrating her 40th birthday by giving back to others.

She’s announced she is launching a mentorship program that assists women trying to re-enter the workforce. In a video, she said that the program, 40X40, would encourage people to help women.

She said, “Because I’m turning 40, I’m asking 40 friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help mentor a woman who is mobilizing back into the workforce. And I think if we all do it, and all commit 40 minutes to some act of service, we can create a ripple effect.”

Melissa McCarthy posted a video on Instagram talking to Markle.

Stars like Amanda Gordon and Adele have signed on to help.  What is your favorite way to give back?
