I am Mischa Barton. I work with Save the Children to get 10 million people to take action by 2010 for the 10 million children who die every year. In my name, I want governments to help save the children who are dying needlessly every year before their 5th birthday.

Mischa Barton is all about the accessories right now, whether it’s those strutting down the catwalk at the Temperley London spring/summer show or her own ever expanding accessory line. At her friend Alice Temperley’s catwalk show in London on Monday, the actress revealed what prompted her to add to her eponymous line of handbags with a hair accessory line: “I’m in between films right now. When I have free time, I have to do something creative,” she told PEOPLE. “So I’ve been designing a headband line with Stacey Lapidus — it’s really fun.” Temperley who showed a collection of feminine draped dresses mixed with edgier studded waistcoats, belts and towering heels certainly has a fan in Barton who gushed about, of course… the “amazing” accessories. “I love the way she puts things together. And if there was one look to covet? “I’m all into the studded belts and the shoes and vests.”
Mischa Barton has lent her name to and joined Save the Children’s Board of Celebrities for the Rewrite the Future campaign. The effort is expected to bring in millions of dollars in donations for impoverished and war-stricken children.
“I visited a primary school in Soweto, where a lot of the children are orphans and there is a high incidence of AIDS,” Barton reveals. “I helped prepare and serve lunch to the children; it’s just simple maize and for many it’s the only meal they get. We chatted and I took part in their class. They are heartbreakingly beautiful children!”
Barton hopes that her work with Save the Children will result in a new irrigation system for Soweto, along with tools to allow the township to grow its own food.
Notes Barton, “I feel so privileged that I could just meet [the children] and hope to make a difference!”

And finally, for those of us upset that Mischa didn’t attend New York Fashion Week, evidently, she’s due to attend London Fashion Week instead which kicks off September 14th.
Mischa Barton’s relationship with Rooney frontman Taylor Locke ended on September 5, just shy of their seven-month anniversary a new report from In Touch notes on Tuesday. The magazine says that according to an insider, it was Mischa who pulled the plug on the relationship and called it quits.
The magazine reports that the couple had just returned from a nearly three-week safari and charity junket through Africa and all that togetherness seems to have been their downfall. “Mischa and Taylor’s romance worked because they spent so much time apart,” an insider tells In Touch.
“He’d be on tour or she’d be working in Europe and they talked over the phone or e-mail.” The insider explains to In Touch that spending 24 hours a day in close proximity with Taylor, 24, caused the 22-year-old actress to rethink her future with him.
“They fought almost every day on the trip,” the insider says. “She broke up with him just a few days after they returned to LA.” “They’d only see each other for a few days at a time,” says the insider. She has a thing for musicians: She also dated Cisco Adler.
