It’s common for people in spotlight do charity work and offer various kinds of support. Fashion designers like Michael Kors and Stella McCartney chose to take part in fighting hunger. Kors joined the United Nations World Food Programme to stop world hunger while McCartney created a c apsule collection of T-shirts for celebration of Red Nose Day.
We wanted to contribute in a way that would make a real difference in people’s lives. Joining forces with the World Food Programme enables us to do that. The fact is, hunger is a solvable problem and I’m proud that we can be a part of the solution,
says Michael Kors.
Michael Kors and United Nations Food Progamme entered a long-term partnership to work on solving the problem of the world hunger by raising funds via various campaigns, products, and events. Kors is to launch two watches in March offered in two sizes at $295 and $325. The profits from each watch will help feed 100 children through the WFP. The designer also offers a text-to-donate program that also helps raising funds.
Stella McCartney’s capsule collection of Red Nose T-shirts is retailed exclusively through TK Maxx stores and a percentage of profits goes to Comic Relief. The collection was produced in Africa using 100% Fairtrade-certified organic cotton. The T-shirts portray Marilyn Monroe, Tommy Cooper, The Beatles, and Kate Moss with a red dot printed over their noses. Kate Moss and David Walliams will model the collction in a campaign.
I admire the Red Nose Day Team and their achievement for this incredible worthwhile cause. To be able to be a small part of supporting that, is extremely rewarding,
The collection is designed for both kids and adults and retails for £5.99 for kid’s sizes and £9.99 for adult’s tees.
