Rwanda will have to wait for Paris Hilton's help. "Due to the restructuring of the Playing for Good Foundation, the philanthropic trip to Rwanda that the foundation had previously planned with Paris has been postponed," the children's charity said Thursday in a statement. A staffer for Andy Gelb, a spokesman for the organization, said he was unavailable for comment. The 26-year-old socialite - who has promised to use her celebrity status for good causes - was supposed to pack her bags for the African country next month. On her itinerary: visits to schools and health-care clinics. "I'm scared, yeah. I've heard it's really dangerous," Hilton told Newsweek magazine earlier this month. "I've never been on a trip like this before."
