Fashion designer Michael Kors and actress Kate Hudson are collaborating for a great cause.
Hudson, 38, and Kors, 57, are partnering to support the fifth annual Watch Hunger Stop campaign to fight global hunger. Watch Hunger Stop was established in 2013 and works towards a world with Zero Hunger. Funds raised from the campaign benefit the United Nations World Food Programme to feed children.
“This is the third year I’ve had the honour of collaborating with Michael on this important cause,” Hudson says. “In June, I visited schools in Cambodia, where the funds raised by Watch Hunger Stop enable the United Nations World Food Programme to feed children so they receive the nutrition they need to grow and to finish their education. It was an amazing experience – I can’t wait to share everything that I saw and learned there.”
The mind behind the Michael Kors global fashion brand has plenty of good things to say about the “Almost Famous” actress as well. “I’m thrilled and grateful that my friend Kate is joining us once again in our efforts to end hunger,” says Kors. “She and I share the belief that if we all work together, this is a problem we can solve. Watch Hunger Stop supports WFP’s school meals program, improving the lives of children who deserve the chance for a healthy, happy future. We’re proud to be able to help.”
Watch Hunger Stop’s multi-faceted approach to conquering hunger includes collecting funds and raising awareness.
One way the campaign is raising money this year is through the sale of special products. This year, those products will include a special edition of the not-yet-released Michael Kors Access Sofie smartwatch and a unique version of the brand’s bestselling Lon aviator sunglasses.
