Kate Hudson Fronts Michael Kors’ charity Watch Drive
Award-winning actress Kate Hudson, and global style icon Michael Kors, have joined forces to Watch Hunger Stop.
Hudson will launch two limited edition Michael Kors timepieces in October 2015, and with each sale of the Bradshaw 100 watch, a hundred children in developing countries will receive a meal through the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).
Hudson says, “I’m proud to join Michael Kors in this global effort to end hunger… As a mother, I can’t think of anything more important than raising a healthy and educated generation of children, and WFP’s School Meals Program is committed to exactly that. This is a cause that I’m eager to be a part of because I believe we can all make a real and significant difference.”
The feeling is clearly mutual. Kors was excited to share the news on Twitter, and says, “I am so excited to have Kate Hudson join me in the fight to ensure that no child anywhere in the world goes to bed hungry,” says Michael Kors. “Not only does she have a unique star quality but she also brings an incredible amount of generosity and a can-do attitude to a cause that is extremely important to me personally. I’m grateful to work alongside her and WFP to make a real change.”
The campaign first launched in 2013, and has since helped WFP deliver 10+ million meals to hungry children.
