The Gucci ‘Nice’ bag, especially designed by Creative Director Frida Giannini, is sold in support of UNICEF, with 25% of the retail price benefiting “Schools for Africa” and “Schools for Asia” initiatives.
As a long-term UNICEF partner, Gucci has contributed over $18 million (USD) to UNICEF’s projects, and as a result is helping more than 6 million children in sub-Saharan Africa to access a better education.
This pink-tan leather tote is available in Gucci stores worldwide and at www.gucci.com until May 31, 2014.
From Nov. 10, 2013 – Jan. 4, 2014, for every purchase from the “Soft Toys for Education” collection, the IKEA Foundation will donate one euro (approximately $1.35) to support UNICEF and Save the Children's global education programs, including UNICEF’s “Schools for Africa” initiative. This year’s collection will feature new fairy tale-themed items, including the KRULLIG Soft Toy Elf and VRIDVINGE Fairy Tail Wings. Since the campaign’s launch in 2003, the IKEA Foundation has raised nearly $74 million, helping improve educational opportunities for more than 10 million children in 46 countries.

Continuing its commitment to the importance of reading and writing, Montblanc launched its fourth collaboration to support UNICEF’s education programs: the “Signature for Good” initiative. This collection—featuring carefully crafted writing instruments, leather products, jewelry and cufflinks with a symbolic brick motif symbolizing UNICEF’s Schools for Africa campaign—is part of a yearlong charity initiative to support UNICEF’s efforts to ensure that children in Africa, Asia and Latin America have access to a quality education.
Montblanc has pledged $1.5 million to UNICEF through a global cause-marketing campaign. For every piece in the “Signature for Good” collection purchased in the U.S. between February 23, 2013, and March 31, 2014, in Montblanc boutiques and partner retailers, Montblanc will donate 10% of the retail price to support UNICEF’s education programs
