Last month, Look To The Stars brought you news that supermodel Naomi Campbell had donated a Hermes “it” bag to help raise funds to fight deaths in pregnancy, which hit more than half a million women each year.
We can now reveal that the bag raised US$31,500 at the auction, with proceeds to go to the White Ribbon Alliance, an organization established in 1999 as an international coalition of individuals and organizations formed to promote increased public awareness of the need to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all women and newborns in developing and developed countries.
The Hermes Birkin bag was named after British singer and actress Jane Birkin, who sold her own bag in 2007 for US$108,000 dollars to benefit a human rights group.
