Vera Wang and Leighton Meester team up to raise money and awareness for DKMS

Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester and designer extraordinaire Vera Wang have once again teamed up, this time all in the name of charity. 

The two ladies have joined forces to raise awareness for DKMS, the world’s biggest bone marrow donor charity. Vera has created a special T-shirt that will be available in Macy’s to raise money for the charity, which you can see Leighton Meester modelling above with 19-year-old blood cancer survivor Kerri Mullens, who was apparently one of the inspirations behind the project.

“I’m excited to be working with DKMS and Leighton Meester on such an important cause,” said Vera Wang. “I designed the ‘share the love’ T-shirt as a reminder that we each have the power to fight blood cancer and save someone’s life. It’s easy to become a bone marrow donor – get swabbed!”

You can get your hands on the T-shirt  when you make a $78 purchase of Vera’s Lovestruck perfume, which Leighton is of course the face of.
