Actress Charlize Theron has launched a new collection of footwear to raise money for impoverished children in her native South Africa.
The Monster star debuted her eco-friendly limited-edition footwear, designed with TOMS Shoes, on Friday (18Dec09).
The range includes slip-on sneakers for men and women, embellished with an image of an African baobab tree.
Proceeds from sales will benefit the star’s non-profit charity, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, which is dedicated to improving the health, education, and social development of high school children in the country.
Additionally, 10,000 pairs of shoes will be given to impoverished children living in remote communities in her homeland.
