Beyonce Partners With the Fashion Industry to Help HaitiFeb 10, 2010 @ 10:00 am
The fashion industry has teamed up with megastar Beyonce to raise money for the victims of Haiti’s devastating earthquake. The singer has been named the official face of the “Fashion for Haiti” T-shirt that was created specifically for the cause. “Join me and the fashion industry by buying and wearing the Fashion for Haiti T-shirt. Together we can send a message of hope by raising much needed funds for the people of Haiti,” Beyonce said. The initiative was organized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America with the support of fashion leaders like Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren and Franciso Costa. “I am always amazed by the strength, talent and compassion of our industry and now more than ever it is essential we come together and help make a difference,” Ralph Lauren said in a statement. The $25 T-shirt will be available for purchase starting February 16th, with all proceeds benefiting the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
