Gucci’s Special Edition Nice Shopper Bag for UNICEF

Gucci further expands their Corporate Social Responsibility footprint by, once again, partnering with UNICEF.

2013 marks the EIGHTH year in collaboration with UNICEF, and this time around, a Special Edition “Gucci for UNICEF” “Nice” Shopper bag, with 25% of all proceeds from the sale of each going towards Education – a cause that Creative Director Frida Giannini is undoubtedly passionate about, as we saw in the  recent Chime For Change Project .

Giannini comments that, “The design is the latest classic that we dedicate to UNICEF’s work helping disadvantaged children who may otherwise not have the chance to go to school. At Gucci we believe that every child has the right to an education, because an education is forever. Seeing first hand UNICEF’s work in Malawi changed my perspective forever, and today I am proud to support both the ‘Schools for Africa’ and ‘Schools for Asia’ initiatives.”

Leila Pakkala, Director of UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division on the collaboration:  “Gucci’s steadfast commitment to UNICEF’s Schools for Africa and Asia initiative has helped provide more than six million children with a safe and protective environment to learn and play … We thank Gucci and their customers for their dedication to helping build a world where every child has access to a quality education.”

The Gucci for UNICEF shopper is, as shown above, in antique rose micro Guccisima leather with light-gold hardware. All proceeds will benefit the “Schools for Asia” and “Schools for Africa” initiative. The shopper is already available in Gucci stores worldwide and on Gucci’s official website and will be available for an entire year, up to May 31st 2014!
