ScarJo Helps Haiti with Handbags


When it comes to celebrities willing to lend a helping hand, my favorite girl Scarlett Johansson is always at the top of the list, ready and willing to give where she can. In the past the actress has participated in the ONE campaign and is currently a Global Ambassador for the aid and development agency, Oxfam. And to help raise funds for the organization the actress teamed up with clothing brand Mango (of whom she is currently the spokesperson) to design a Haiti themed handbag. From March and while stocks last, this £16.90 handbag will be available in the more than 1,390 MANGO stores worldwide and part of the profits will be donated to the NGO Oxfam International (Intermón Oxfam in Spain). The print on the handbag represents the ancient cartography of Haiti, and contains the message “Supporting the people of Haiti” written and signed by the actress.
Scarlett expressed her support for the program, saying “I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Mango to promote conscious consumerism and to benefit Oxfam’s Haiti Earthquake Response Fund. By purchasing this bag, which I specially designed, you are helping to provide life saving assistance like clean water to the people of Haiti.”
Beauty, brains, talent AND compassion? Just another reason to heart Scarlett more.
