Halle Berry has joined Michael Kors’ Watch Hunger Stop campaign.
The actress is the first of the promised figures from the worlds of fashion, film and music to be revealed to back the designer’s impressive charitable bid.
Kors has created two covetable unisex watch designs to raise funds for the United Nations’ World Food Programme. For every watch sold, 100 hungry children in over 70 countries around the world will be fed.
‘I’m proud to join Michael Kors in this global effort to end hunger,’ said Berry in a statement. ‘Statistics show that women play a crucial role in defeating hunger. WFP is especially focused on providing assistance to women because, as mothers, teachers, and entrepreneurs, they will improve the future for their families and communities. It’s an effort I’m eager to be a part of because I’m certain we can make a real and substantial difference in the lives of people in need.’
‘I could not be more excited about Halle Berry’s decision to join me in fighting hunger. She brings talent, energy, generosity, and of course star power to a cause that is extremely important to me. I’m grateful that she has joined our effort and thrilled that we will be working side by side to end hunger.’ Kors added.
Series 100 watches created especially for the project go on sale at Michael Kors boutiques and online at michaelkors.com on 22 April, priced £279.
