Michael Kors announced that actress, author, entrepreneur and humanitarian Kate Hudson is once again lending her talents to support Watch Hunger Stop, the brand’s annual campaign to fight global hunger. “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 and I can’t wait to share everything that I saw and learned there.”
Watch Hunger Stop, established in 2013, raises funds and awareness to help achieve a world with Zero Hunger. The brand's partner in the effort is the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), and funds go to support WFP's school meals program. The sale of special products is one way Watch Hunger Stop raises funds for WFP. This year, those products will include a special edition of the yet to release Michael Kors Access Sofie smartwatch and a unique version of the brand's bestselling Lon aviator sunglasses.
“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.”
