Oscar Swag Bags Include Shelter Pet Meal Donations

Oscars Statuettes

The “Everybody Wins” Oscar nominee gift bags are worth about $230,000 each, and go to those in the top five categories who didn’t walk away with the statuette on Sunday night. They contain things like extravagant trips and luxury car rentals for Hollywood’s A-list. But last year’s Best Actress winner says the only thing in it that she actually uses from the bag is a voucher from Halo, Purely for Pets, to donate 10,000 meals to animals in need. "I always donate the pet meals to an animal shelter," said Julianne Moore. Other stars including Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Robert Duvall, Barkhad Abdi and Ethan Hawke have also taken Halo up on the offer to give the food to the shelter of their choice.
