This August marks the third year in a row that actress Kate Hudson has teamed up with Michael Kors to promote Watch Hunger Stop, a global campaign that aims to fight world hunger.
For the fifth year running, Michael Kors works with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to help achieve a world with zero hunger through the sale of limited-edition accessories. This year, the charitable goods include a not-yet-released Michael Kors Acess Sofie smartwatch, and a unique version of the brand's best-selling Lon aviator sunglasses. For every purchase, Michael Kors will donate US$25 (equivalent to 100 meals) to the WFP.
“This is the third year I’ve had the honor of collaborating with Michael on this important cause,” says Hudson. “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.”
“I’m thrilled and grateful that my friend Kate is joining us once again in our efforts to end hunger,” says Michael 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.”
