HALLE BERRY WORKS TO WATCH HUNGER STOP
When it comes to Halle Berry, generosity is an understatement. For well over a decade, the Academy Award-winner has committed her time, energy and heart to many worthy causes—from helping victims of domestic abuse through her support of the Jenesse Center in Los Angeles to raising funds for cancer research as a Revlon Global Brand Ambassador.
In 2013, she joined with Michael Kors to help launch Watch Hunger Stop, the brand’s campaign to fight world hunger in partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). Now, as the brand prepares to mark World Food Day on October 16, Berry has confirmed that her commitment and support are ongoing.
“I’m delighted to continue working with Michael Kors and the UN World Food Programme in this effort to achieve a world without hunger,” says Berry. “Since we first launched the 100 Series watch last spring, we’ve helped WFP deliver more than five million meals to children in need.”
Berry’s dedication to the cause is evident in her decision to visit school-feeding programs in Nicaragua that have benefitted from the Watch Hunger Stop campaign. “I’m proud of what we’ve done together and eager to continue this effort to make a difference in the lives of people in need,” she says. With her continued support, we’re thrilled to see what we can achieve next.
The actress will be in attendance at the Eighth Annual God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards dinner on Thursday, October 16, 2014, where she will present honoree Leslie Moonves, President and CEO of CBS Corporation, with the Golden Heart Award for Lifetime Achievement.
