Halle Berry teams with Kors for charity

Halle Berry

Halle Berry is working with designer Michael Kors to raise money and awareness for the United Nations World Food Programme.

The actress and the designer are committed to boosting funds for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). Michael agreed to a long-term partnership with the WFP at the start of this year, and he believes Halle is the perfect person to help him make a difference.

“[Halle Berry] brings talent, energy, generosity, and of course star power to a cause that is extremely important to me,” he said.

Halle was involved in creating two new versions of Michael’s runway watch, which features in the designer’s Watch Hunger Stop campaign. The 100 Series timepieces will be available in Michael’s stores and on MichaelKors.com this month.

Every watch sold will give 100 hungry children a meal.

Halle, who is pregnant with her second child, is thrilled to be involved in such a worthwhile project.

“Statistics show that women play a crucial role in defeating hunger,” she explained. “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.”

As part of the campaign, Halle and Michael will take a trip with WFP to see how the organisation’s work can impact on global hunger.

Halle is no stranger to charity work. The 46-year-old Hollywood star has worked with Revlon Run/Walk for Women to raise funds for cancer research and helped victims of domestic abuse.
