Shakira and Gerard Piqué host World Baby Shower to support Unicef's work for children

Shakira and Gerard Piqué - Singer-songwriter and Unicef Goodwill Ambassador Shakira, and FC Barcelona soccer star Gerard Piqué, are celebrating the imminent arrival of their second child by expanding upon their original concept of a 'World Baby Shower' to benefit Unicef and vulnerable children around the world. After the success of the Unicef baby shower for their first son, Milan, Shakira and Gerard decided to create a shareable shower available for any and all expectant mothers in the hopes of giving a greater purpose to other baby showers and helping those babies and mothers who need it most. "Now that we are soon welcoming our second child we want to help other children around the world and also contribute to a long-lasting solution for getting children living in extreme poverty the supplies they need to survive," said Shakira. "We also want other parents to feel compelled to do the same," Shakira added. "With the explosion of social media, celebrities aren't the only ones who have platforms that can reach mass audiences, and we want this movement to keep going long after our baby shower has ended, so we want to invite them to host their own baby showers with Unicef as well." Fans of the expectant couple will be invited to share in their event by visiting a special website featuring 'Inspired Gifts' that directly benefit Unicef's work for children in some of the poorest and remotest places on earth. In an exclusive post on her Facebook page, Shakira revealed the inspiration behind creating a platform where every expectant mother can help make an impact in saving and improving lives of children around the world. "Every woman who's expecting has the power to use the blessing of her child's imminent birth to save the lives of other, less fortunate children around the world. If every expectant mother having a baby shower decided to include among her gift registry some of these "inspired gifts" that Unicef offers, we could collectively save the lives - - Monday 19th January 2015 (1 Picture)
