A snowman in Africa- Gucci campaign to benefit UNICEF

From November 16 to December 31, 2009 the new line from Gucci for UNICEF will be on sale worldwide.

Featuring a children's picture book 'Snowman in Africa' for the 5th anniversary of the project, as well as a series of accessories, Gucci will contribute 100% of the proceeds of the book and 25% of the proceeds of the accessories to UNICEF.

Last year's campaign featured the beautiful, but sometimes idiotic*, Rihanna modelling a tattoo themed range of accessories.

This year, the African theme follows through with elephant and snake printed bags and small items such as coin purses, and key chains, ranging in price from $50- $5000 (prices are in US dollars).

For those of you who feel guilty dropping a few grand on a handbag- you shouldn't anyway, but this is the perfect time to treat yourself. Not only will you be the proud owner of one of these gorgeous pieces, but you also would have been doing your bit for children of the world in need of our help for a better future.
To all the boys looking for Chrissy presents for your missus- even if she says she doesn't like designer or monogram, you simply have no choice but to buy the elephant print now do you? Yeah, that's what I thought.

*I don't want people thinking I'm insensitive to women who are victims of violence. I just feel in her very public situtation where she has access to support and the financial means to leave her attacker she had almost a moral obligation to do so immediately. Way to send out a message to your young fans, Rihanna. And that's all on that subject.
