The campaign supports a range of educational projects in more than 20 countries around the world. Some highlights:
- enrolling disabled children in school in rural areas of China and India, where these children would otherwise be excluded from going to school
- bolstering education for children in countries caught up in conflict in the Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Southern Sudan, where entire educational systems have been devastated
- improving educational opportunities for marginalized children in the urban megalopolises of Brazil and Mexico, where access to education offers concrete opportunities for the future of the children and their communities.
The full list of countries includes: Albania, Afghanistan, Bolivia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Indonesia, India, Italy, Mexico, Montenegro, Japan, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Southern Sudan, Tunisia, Uganda, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Renowned photographer Fabrizio Ferri has played a critical role in the partnership’s continued success through his portrait collection of more than 250 celebrities.
The collection features celebrities from around the world wearing the Save the Children jewelry collection with expressions and hands held to symbolize the “STOP” of children’s poverty.
Several celebrities involved in the partnership have actively engaged in field visits to Save the Children programs to observe firsthand the impact of the partnership.
In STOP.THINK.GIVE portrait collection, they as the other celebrities, wear Bulgari Rings for Save the Children.
Starting from 2009 Bulgari has partnered with Save the Children
In 2009 jewelry and luxury goods brand Bulgari started investing in the future of hundreds of thousands of unprivileged children around the world by producing a specially designed limited edition Save the Children jewelry collection.
Since the launch of the first ring and then pendant dedicated to Save the Children, Bulgari has raised an impressive sum to help children in need, changing the course of their lives and futures.
Inspired by the iconic B.zero1 jewelry line, the collection comprises a ring, launched in October 2010, and a pendant, newly launched in April 2014 as a further celebration of Bulgari’s 130th anniversary.
The B.Zero1 pendant and the B.Zero1 ring retail for $510 each, of which a huge percentage will be donated to Save the Children.
This special collection is available in Bulgari boutiques throughout the United States and around the world. To purchase to learn more about Bulgari’s commitment to education, and to see the celebrity photo exhibition please visit Bulgari’s website.
