Gigi Hadid is helping victims from the war in Ukraine in a BIG way!
The 26-year-old model took to her Instagram account on March 6 to make a special announcement. Hadid made a commitment to donate her earnings from her Fall 2022 shows to the people affected by the war in Ukraine, in addition to those from Palestine.
The model also shared pictures from her shows. See them below.
Inspired By A Fellow Model
“Having a set Fashion Month schedule has meant that my colleagues and I often present new fashion collections during heartbreaking and traumatic times in history,” Hadid began. “We don’t have control over most of our work schedules, but we would like to walk ‘for’ something.”
Hadid noted that she’s “Following in the footsteps of my friend,” Argentine model Mica Argañaraz, who decided to donate parts of her earnings from fashion week to Ukrainian organizations.
She Has A Big Heart
“I am pledging to donate my earnings from the Fall 2022 shows to aid those suffering from the war in Ukraine, as well as continuing to support those experiencing the same in Palestine,” Hadid added.
She continued, “Our eyes and hearts must be open to all human injustice,” adding, “May we all see each other as brothers and sisters, beyond politics, beyond race, beyond religion. At the the end of the day, innocent lives pay for war- not leaders.”
Hadid concluded her message, writing, “HANDS OFF UKRAINE. HANDS OFF PALESTINE. PEACE. PEACE. PEACE. 🕊”
