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.
