Save the Children, appreciative of Gabriela Hearst’s enduring generosity, expressed gratitude for the brand’s consistent support. Janti Soeripto, President and CEO of Save the Children US, commended Gabriela Hearst’s commitment, emphasizing the brand’s dedication not only to philanthropy but also to a sustainable and ethical business approach.
In a statement, Gabriela Hearst, Founder & Creative Director, highlighted the significance of allocating proceeds to diverse causes over the past Decembers. This year, the focus is on The Children Emergency Response Fund, acknowledging the harsh realities faced by vulnerable populations, especially women and children, in conflict and disaster zones. Gabriela Hearst urged support for Save the Children, emphasizing the importance of safeguarding children as an investment in the collective future.
Save the Children has been a beacon of support for children in conflict and disaster zones for over a century. The Children’s Emergency Response Fund (CEF) plays a pivotal role in addressing the escalating humanitarian needs of children around the world. By pooling resources, Save the Children can proactively prepare for crises, deliver timely aid, and provide immediate relief when crises intensify.
In 2022, CEF enabled Save the Children to assist over 24.4 million individuals in 54 countries through flexible funding amounting to $82.2 million. A notable portion of this funding was deployed pre-emptively, aiding communities in preparing for and responding to predictable emergencies. Save the Children remains steadfast in reaching the most challenging and inaccessible locations, where the organization’s child-centric focus is crucial.
As the luxury fashion community engages in festive celebrations, Gabriela Hearst’s collaboration with Save the Children stands as a beacon of hope, echoing the brand’s commitment to making a positive impact in the lives of children globally.
