From runway to mommy to career opportunities and squeezing everything else in between, these fabulous models are not only giving back, but making a difference. Not only are these charities reaping the rewards, these lovely ladies are changing lives, making a difference and shining in a completely different way other way than on the runway. As most people would applaud these ladies showcased runway careers, these genuine charitable moves have made these ladies shine more so than wearing the infamous million dollar Victoria’s Secret diamond bra. We are pleased to introduce the following fabulous charitable stars.
She is just not just a supermodel, attendee for NYU, but clearly as superstar as well. While Karlie started her career at age 13 (while typical, but very young … think about missing every normal high school experience) – she skyrocketed after she worked for Abercrombie and Fitch. Karlie not only went on to be a supermodel, but she started Karlie’s bars while collaborating with Momofuku Milk Bar on Karlie’s Kookies, a line of vegan cookies sold to benefit hungry children and other charities. Karlie also started Code With Karlie which also gave 21 students scholarships for girls interested in computer coding.
Christy Burns is a perfect example of a supermodel who went back to college as well and also founded a very important charity – Every Mother Counts. Every Mother Counts is charitable organization dedicated to maternal health, for which she was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2014. At the end of the day, this former supermodel is nothing less than a super star.
Niki Taylor is making headlines by supporting the Red Cross in partnership with Nexcare Bandages and increasing awareness about the constant need for blood donations and platelets. For this supermodel, this cause is truly a personal one. In a car accident that left her in critical condition 15 years ago, the Red Cross was pivotal in her recovery and Niki simply wants to give back. As part of her charitable partnership, Nexcare has developed a collection of limited-edition bandages surrounding this year’s theme, “Feel the Beat, Give Blood,” to remind donors of the importance of blood donation and she is truly supporting her cause.
Heidi Klum kicks some serious tail when it comes to the fashionistas giving back. This supermodel clearly puts her status in check, by actually giving back and this is why we adore her. Heidi actually donates a great portion of the dresses she wears to charity. Secondly, she has also donated her dresses to the red dress program and also has supported multiple charitable organizations and actually, there are too many to count. She has worked with the AIDS Foundation, Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, UNICEF, Elton John Aids Foundation, The Heart Truth, Elizabeth Glazer Aids Foundation and Children’s Defence Fund to name just a little few.
