Colombian pop superstar Shakira and her beau Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique announced their second annual “World Baby Shower” to benefit poor mothers and children globally.

The multi-Grammy award-winning artist is the Goodwill Ambassador for the UNICEF Education Fund and wrote that she wishes to use “the blessing of her child’s imminent birth to save the lives of other, less fortunate children around the world,”adding that “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 of hundreds of thousands of children all over the globe.”

Donors can contribute to the purchase of midwifery kits, medical equipment, vaccinations, blankets, books and a soccer ball.

The couple also challenged others.

“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.”
Nice! Shakira announced her second pregnancy last July.
