Not only does Michael Kors boast some of the most gorgeous clothes and accessories we’ve ever seen, but the fashion designer is also working with the United Nations World Food Programme to help world hunger with the Watch Hunger Stop campaign.
“The response to Watch Hunger Stop has been amazing,” Michael Kors said. “We delivered one-and-a-half million meals to children in less than six months, and we’ve only just begun.
“Our hope for World Food Day is to get people talking about hunger, about the many ways they can help address the problem. Donate, volunteer, talk, text, tweet – really, everyone can be an ambassador.”
On October 16th, i.e. World Food Day, Michael Kors will be giving away Watch Hunger Stop tees to shoppers in his New York, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Hong Kong stores. Recipients will then have the option to have their picture taken which will then be displayed on billboards in Times Square and online at Watchhungerstop.com, all in aid of raising money and awareness for the cause.
Shoppers will also be given the option of donating either £5, £10 or £25 to the World Food Programme when making a purchase.
