Is there anything Jessica Alba can’t do? She’s a mom, a working actress, a red carpet darling, the founder of The Honest Company, and now can officially add jewellery designer to her resume.
Alba teamed up with jewellery mogul and longtime friend Jennifer Meyer to bring us a collection of necklaces to benefit the charity (RED), available on Gilt.com. Proceeds from the sales of each of the two designs will go directly to provide “lifesaving medication to pregnant HIV-positive women in Africa through the Global Fund, a beneficiary of (RED)” reports Women’s Wear Daily.
Alba and Meyer, who are both moms, say this project is near and dear to both of their hearts. The medication this funding will provide prevents a mother’s unborn child from contracting HIV. “It makes so much sense for us to collaborate on what we love, use the power of our platforms, and amplify what we do to help eradicate one of the worst diseases,” Alba tells WWD.
We commend Jessica and Jennifer on their new joint endeavor!
