Michael Kors, United Nations World Food Programme
The new partnership with WFP is a significant milestone in Kors' mission to eradicate hunger on both a local and global scale. In October 2012, Mr. Kors made a $5 million donation to God's Love We Deliver, the New York-based non-profit organization that cooks and delivers individually tailored meals daily to people living with severe illnesses throughout New York City, Newark and Hudson County. This gift enabled the God's Love We Deliver team to continue its life-affirming work and conduct a major renovation of its facility in SoHo, which will be renamed "The Michael Kors Building." Following his contribution, Kors was honored with the 2012 Golden Heart Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Golden Heart Awards Dinner.
