HALLE BERRY JOINS MICHAEL KORS TO HELP FIGHT WORLD HUNGER
If you visit Limegrove then you must have seen their Michael Kors outlet, now the founder of this style movement is pleased to announce that Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry is joining forces with the designer to help fight global hunger. Berry will work with Kors to raise awareness as well as funds for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). The Michael Kors brand recently announced a long-term partnership with WFP to raise millions of dollars to help end hunger.
The first project for the pair will be the launch of two specially designed styles of Michael Kors’ best-selling Runway watch as part of the brand’s WATCH HUNGER STOP campaign. For each watch sold, 100 meals will be provided to hungry children through WFP, the world’s largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger.* The 100 Series watches will be available exclusively in Michael Kors stores worldwide and on michaelkors.com in the U.S. Berry and Kors are planning a site visit with WFP in the next year to experience firsthand the work done by the organization and to highlight the ongoing need to end hunger that exists in countries around the globe.
Renowned for her talent, Halle Berry has also been honored for her activism and philanthropy over the years. For more than a decade she has committed her time and money to helping victims of domestic abuse through her support of the Jenesse Center in Los Angeles. As a Revlon Global Brand Ambassador, she is deeply involved in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women to raise money for cancer research and treatment. In 2009, she was one of the recipients of Love Our Children USA’s “Mothers Who Make a Difference” award. Fighting hunger is a natural extension of her efforts on behalf of women and children.
“I’m proud to join Michael Kors in this global effort to end hunger,” says Berry. “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,” says Michael Kors. “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.”
