Michael Kors is pleased to announce that Academy Award–winning actress Halle Berry has again committed to joining the Watch Hunger Stop campaign to help build a world with zero hunger. As an honorary partner of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), Berry will work with Kors to raise awareness as well as funds for WFP.
Berry first joined Michael Kors in the spring of 2013 to help launch the Watch Hunger Stop campaign. She was instrumental in introducing the 100 Series watch, specially designed to support WFP. For each 100 Series watch sold, 100 children in a hunger-stricken area receive a nutritious meal.
This fall, she will lend her time and her face to promote the latest addition to the 100 Series, a limited-edition rose gold watch with a detailed map of the world etched on a striking gray-blue dial. Berry will be accompanying WFP to Nicaragua this summer, visiting some of the schools and farms that have benefitted from the Watch Hunger Stop campaign. The visit will give her a firsthand look at the work WFP does in local communities as well as highlight the ongoing need to fight hunger that exists in countries around the globe.
Renowned for her talent, Halle Berry has also been honored for her activism and philanthropy over the years. Fighting hunger is a natural extension of her efforts on behalf of women and children. Michael Kors explains, “I’m so pleased that Halle Berry has decided to continue her amazing work with us. Her enormous dedication to Watch Hunger Stop is one of the reasons we’ve reached so many people and helped deliver five million school meals. Halle’s talent and energy are inspiring, and I look forward to working together with her in the fight against hunger.”
