Actress and fashion icon Halle Berry has teamed up with star designer Michael Kors in a battle against world hunger. The duo have designed a pair of watches for Kors’ campaign “Watch Hunger Stop.” Proceeds from each big-faced watch will provide 100 meals for children through the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).
Much like Lauren Bush Lauren’s popular FEED campaign, Watch Hunger Stop helps consumers equate luxury goods with actual meals. This transparency helps consumers feel at ease when supporting a charitable cause, by giving hard facts on what their contribution purchase will bring to a person in need.
The WFP is focused on providing meals to specifically women and children in developing countries, providing the building blocks for families and communities to thrive. To promote their collaboration, Kors and Berry will also help raise additional funds through a series of events to bring awareness to the cause.
Kors only joined up with WFP in January of this year, and has already shown his commitment to making a difference with his designs and influence. Although the two Watch Hunger Stop designs by Berry and Kors won’t be revealed until later this Spring, fans can sign up to pre-order the time pieces on Kors’ website. For every watch sold, Kors will donate $25 to WFP.
