Actress Debra Messing will collaborate with designer Robert Lee Morris to create a piece of gold jewelry to benefit YouthAIDS.

The piece will be featured in the February and May 2009 issues of InStyle magazine, as well as on a special website which will be live from January 13 to February 24, 2009.

Messing is also the first confirmed celebrity participant in the Leaves of Change charity initiative, in which A-List celebrities will be invited to design a gold pendant necklace incorporating a leaf motif. Participants will choose to have proceeds from the sale of their designs benefit their favorite charity or Jewelers for Children, the jewelers industry charity that has invested over $30 million in special programs to reach children whose lives have been devastated by catastrophic illness or life-threatening abuse and neglect.

Leaves of Change will culminate in spring 2009 with an exclusive Los Angeles gala event and a live and online auction to raise funds and awareness for all of the participating charities.

“Bringing together highly talented celebrities with renowned jewelry designers will create exciting and innovative gold designs,” World Gold Council U.S. Managing Director John Calnon said in a media release. “The simultaneous benefit to multiple charities, especially in such difficult economic times, makes for a meaningful and lasting impact.”
