The World Food Programme is to partner with United States designer Michael Kors to raise awareness of global hunger throughout the fashion community and beyond.
Mr. Kors, who this year announced global hunger would be at the centre of his philanthropic efforts, will support WFP through a series of awareness-focused campaigns, special events and limited-edition fundraising products created by his namesake company.
“We look forward to working with Michael Kors. Together, we will generate more attention as well as much-needed resources in support of WFP’s efforts to end world hunger,” WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin said in a news release.
“I am so proud to be joining the World Food Programme (WFP) in one of the greatest global fights of our time – the battle to end hunger,” Mr. Kors said.
