Singer Mary J. Blige is one of three celebrities to design watches to raise money for Chrysalis.
The 37-year-old R&B artist has joined with Eric Dane and Russell Simmons to design limited edition Ernst Benz Chronoscope watches to support the work of the non-profit organization devoted to assisting individuals escape homelessness and poverty. The timepieces are part of a collection entitled “Time for Change”.
“I knew that I wanted to support Chrysalis after learning of the organization, but after attending this year’s Butterfly Ball, I am even more dedicated to supporting this project,” said Leonid Khankin, Managing Director and Designer for Ernst Benz. “This limited edition watch collection is just one step towards raising funds and awareness for an organization doing incredible work to change lives and give people back their dignity.”
Only 24 numbered watches will be made of each design, and will be available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue with 50% of the sale from each watch going to Chrysalis. In addition, one watch from each series will be auctioned online, with 100% of these proceeds going to the organization.
