  • Philanthropy matters.
  • $25 per watch goes to WFP.
  • Celebrity status will do good.

Celebrities Kate Hudson and Michael Kors are looking to break a cycle by putting an end to child hunger with the United Nations. The duo are pairing up for a limited-run from his Bradshaw 100 watch collection.

This week, Kate Hudson announced a team-up with designer Michael Kors in an effort to stop world hunger for children. United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) focuses on eliminating world hunger through awareness and the Almost Famous actress is already committed to the project.

Using star power for Kors and the UN's School Meals Program, the Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated actress will launch two limited-edition styles of the Bradshaw watch in October 2015. Launched in 2013, Michael Kors Watch Hunger Stop Collection will donate US $25 of every purchase to the WFP.

The watches are named the Bradshaw 100 for the 100 school children who will receive nutritious, healthy meals. And each sale means a lot to the two celebrities.

“As a mother, I can’t think of anything more important than raising a healthy and educated generation of children, and WFP’s School Meals Program is committed to exactly that,” said Hudson. “I’m proud to join Michael Kors in this global effort to end hunger.”

Kors is completely on board with the campaign, too. “Not only does she have a unique star quality but she also brings an incredible amount of generosity and a can-do attitude to a cause that is extremely important to me personally.”

Growing up in a family with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, the starlet learned the value of civic commitment. Hawn began The Hawn Foundation in 2002 to open dialogue and resources for children to have a better life.

Speaking to Forbes in 2013, the Overboard leading lady discussed how youngest son Wyatt Russell’s future seemed to be focused on stressors due to unending violent coverage by media. “I want to create empathy in this in order to stimulate that neurological response and to develop it because it needs to be developed. The brain needs to be developed.”

Development comes from promoting education, not just academically but socially, emotionally, and mentally. Something both women agree on. Being aware is nothing new for the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star, either. She supports animal and environmental protection, organ donation, disaster relief, and human rights in addition to working with kids and education.

Joining Kors, being a steward for the United Nations, and taking care of children clearly runs in Hudson’s family. It’s not just about her children, but all kids and the ability to lead productive, happy, and healthy lives.

It’s a family tradition that Hudson is passing on to her son Ryder, who went with her this year to help the Starkey Foundation fit and provide patient hearing aids in Mexico. Making a difference in lives is more than a single action. Kors own philanthropic deeds includes a $5 million donation to the New York City-based AIDS organization God’s Love We Deliver after they announced a need more space to help serve more food in 2012.

Money means power—something a billionaire and legacy lead have no problem using. Working together, the two longtime friends are focused on reducing food poverty and inequality across the board.

“I’m grateful to work alongside her and WFP to make a real change,” added the former Project Runaway judge.

Hudson concurred. “This is a cause that I'm eager to be a part of because I believe we can all make a real and significant difference.”
