Rihanna released a limited-edition lingerie collection to benefit Hurricane Dorian victims
By now, we all know that there are few things Rihanna can’t do. Between dominating the music world, the beauty world, and the fashion world, we’re fully convinced RiRi could lead a country (and make it a world superpower).
Since 2012, she has also been at the helm of her own foundation. Rihanna founded the Clara Lionel Foundation in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. According to its official site, the organization “supports and funds groundbreaking and effective education and emergency response programs around the world,” including “primary and secondary education programs in Malawi, Barbados, and Senegal and emergency response programs in the Caribbean.”
As a way to help support victims of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, Rihanna just did a super cool thing.
The singer dropped a limited-edition lingerie collection for Savage x Fenty, with proceeds from every purchase going toward emergency relief efforts.
On September 8th, she announced the initiative on social media, writing, "I started @claralionelfdn because I believe in people having a chance at a better life through health, education and proactive measures to emergency response. You can donate and contribute to our mission simply by picking up these exclusive @savagexfenty pieces—out now!"
Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty website notes a minimum donation of $7 for each product sold.
The collection includes four items, all in chic black: a cami, a slip, and two pairs of undies in bikini cut and brief cut. Prices range from $20 to $39. It’s a super-affordable (and sexy!) way to help support the victims of Hurricane Dorian, who face tremendous devastation after the Category 5 storm made landfall last week.
If you want to snag some new lingerie from the collection, act fast because the items won’t be restocked once they sell out. Shop it at Savage x Fenty’s site right now. Based on how gorgeous these pieces look, we have a feeling they’ll be gone pretty quickly.
The Clara Lionel Foundation is also helping those impacted by Hurricane Dorian by providing two emergency response grants directly to organizations at work in the area.
The first grant will support Chef José Andres’s World Central Kitchen, whose team has been helping hurricane victims in the Bahamas since Tuesday, September 3rd, by providing meals to people affected by the storm. The second grant will help fund Direct Relief’s medical aid efforts, which provides victims with “emergency health kits containing chronic care medications, acute care resources, and supplies for medical professionals, as well as needed medicines for thousands of people,” according to the foundation’s website.
We love that Rihanna is using her platform to help those truly in need at this time, so if you’ve got a bit of extra cash, supporting these organizations—and scoring some sexy new duds, too—is a great way to give back in any way you can. You’re always doing us proud, RiRi.
