Shakira and her Spanish soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique have decided to host an online baby shower for charity and have posted an intimate photo to promote the event.
By taking her baby shower to the Internet and opening the doors to help the less fortunate children around the world, the 35 year old UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador will make sure the birth of her first child will be a global event.
Shakira and Pique set up a website hosted by UNICEF, that allows visitors to purchase items such as mosquito nets and polio vaccines which will then be distributed to communities in desperate need of them.
Upon entering the shower, guests are greeted with a personal message from Shakira and her boyfriend:
“As you all know, we will soon be welcoming our first child into the world, and to celebrate his birth we’ve organized a virtual baby shower in association with UNICEF. In lieu of receiving gifts for our baby as with a traditional shower we would like to offer support for babies who live in conditions of extreme poverty throughout the world. ‘Thanks to all of you, they will receive in the form of inspired gifts therapeutic food packages, vaccines, and rehydration salts which will help save the lives of hundred of thousands of babies throughout the world. We’d like to thank you in advance, and we are very very happy to know that we can count on your support.”
