July has been a busy month for model Naomi Campbell on the charity front. An ambassador for White Ribbon Alliance, Campbell has been speaking out about issues of safe pregnancy and childbirth in both political and consumer spheres.

Campbell donated a Hermes Birkin bag, worth thousands of pounds, to the White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) charity designer bag auction, “30 Bags 30 Days.” Anticipating a nice return, WRA puts monies raised towards getting resources, skilled health workers with midwifery skills, support and information to women throughout the world, and towards ongoing efforts to raise awareness about needless maternal mortality.

In another effort at bringing attention to the issue, Campbell read a personal message to Italy’s Prime Minister Berlusconi in a video clip ahead of the G8 Summit that took place earlier this month.

“Every year, half a million women die in pregnancy or childbirth,” Campbell said. “This is particularly shocking because these deaths don’t have to happen. There are eight people in the world who can stop this tragedy, and this year you are the host. On behalf of every woman and every mother, I’m asking you to be magnificent at the G8 on this subject. You can change the future for millions of mothers and women all over the world.”
