Today Michael of Wales & I went to visit the @helprefugeesuk store in New York - the sister pop up to the London one off Carnaby street. Today’s #aislingrecommendsecoorsociallyconsciousbrandseverydayuntilxmas is close to my heart as I’ve seen the amazing work these guys do first hand with the @theguiltyfeminist ‘s trip to Calais. You can go in & buy clothing or as alternative Xmas presents for people who have everything, you can buy something for a person during the worst time in their lives. The size of some of the life jackets they need would break your heart. You get a Little Xmas card in return to give to someone so you still get to hand over a thing. Also they’re donating some of the profits to UK & US homeless charities & in the US money for legal help also goes towards the people on the Mexican border who need reuniting with their families. There is no easy solution or end to the refugee crisis. But the simple act of humanity in the present when we can- food, warmth, shelter during horrific conditions is how we show we still have hope, that in the messy cruel world of politics & the wars raging all over the place we don’t want to see people drowning or freezing in camps or a seven year old die of dehydration in border patrol custody. It may sound hippy dippy but #ChooseLove because with the opposite, nobody wins. Also big shout out to Steve & the gang @refugeecommunitykitchen who make delicious warm fresh meals every day for 100s of people all done by volunteers 😍🥰
News of Michael's relationship with Aisling emerged weeks after he split from another comedienne, Sarah Silverman, in February.
Last month, the "Underworld" star revealed his four-year relationship with the American actress ended after they decided they both needed to be politically active in their respective countries following the vote for Britain to leave the European Union (EU) and the election of U.S. President Donald Trump in 2016.
"We both felt in different ways we wanted to get more involved," he told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper. "That led to her doing her show I Love You, America (in which Silverman interviewed people from across the political spectrum), and it led to me wanting to address the issues that I thought led some people to vote the way they did about Brexit, in the area I come from and others like it".
"We both had very similar drives, and yet to act on those drives pulled us in different directions - because she is American and I'm Welsh. I felt a responsibility to do something, but it (meant) coming back (to Britain) - which was difficult for us, because we were very important to each other. But we both acknowledge that each of us had to do what we needed to do".
Michael had been based in the U.S. to be close to his daughter, Lily Mo, with his ex-girlfriend Kate Beckinsale. He decided to move back to the U.K. once his kid, now 19, headed off to college.
