Halle Berry & Michael Kors Design Timepieces For The UN’s “Watch Hunger Stop” Campaign

For Halle Berry, the “timing” couldn’t be more perfect.

The 46-year-old actress, who just announced that she is expecting her first child with fiance Olivier Martinez, has joined forces with American designer Michael Kors to end child hunger with the U.N. World Food Programme. Kors enlisted the help of Berry to design a pair of watches for Kors’ “Watch Hunger Stop” Campaign. “I wanted someone talented, check. Someone compassionate to the world, a great mother, someone incredibly glamorous and chic and who makes it all look easy,” Kors said of teaming up with Berry.

“I could not be more excited about Halle Berry’s decision to join me in fighting hunger, she brings talent, energy, generosity, and of course star power to a cause that is extremely important to me,” Kors added in a statement. “I’m grateful that she has joined our effort and thrilled that we will be working side by side to end hunger.”

Available in gold or silver, each timepiece retails for $295 and will allow for 100 meals to be delivered to hungry children that need it.

Halle and Kors also plan to visit locales from Africa to Central America, where the meals will be delivered with care. “I hope we go while I’m pregnant, so I can talk about prenatal care,” Halle said. “And I will have time off. I’m not working right now. It’s so important to me, being a mom, that I can help educate women on how important it is that when you have a healthy child, it helps set them up for life. If we can use our celebrity, I want to. I don’t want it to go waste. It would be a shame not to use it.”

For Kors, feeding the hungry is the easiest way to make a difference. “This isn’t about research or a big political or social change, this is about giving a meal to people who need them,” said Kors, who has been a longtime supporter of Joan Rivers’ charity Gods Love We Deliver. “I go all over the globe traveling, and there are very few things in the world that are solvable catastrophes. This is one of them.”
