Celebrity Designed Spatulas Return To Williams Sonoma For A Good Cause
Everyone’s favorite home and kitchen retailer Williams-Sonoma has joined forces with non-profit organization Share Our Strength to combat youth hunger in America through a campaign called “No Kid Hungry.”
For the seventh year in a row, the retailer will feature a line of spatulas that cost $12.95, with 30 percent of proceeds benefiting No Kid Hungry. For those who love a good designer name, you might find some of these familiar. The line of spatulas have been illustrated by a hodgepodge of celebrities; a long list including Faith Hill, Bobby Flay, Kristen Bell, Neil Patrick Harris, Alton Brown and Giada De Laurentiis – even Questlove has got into the action.
Personal touches characterize each of the spatulas in Williams-Sonoma’s new line, like the sloth on Kristen Bell’s design (her favorite animal) or Giada’s ode to her signature love for Italian cuisine.
The campaign has an ambitious goal of raising $2 million dollars, which would provide more than 20 millions meals to children across the United States. No Kid Hungry has relied on partnerships with personalities to tackle childhood hunger before, making big moves against a plight that plagues nearly 16 million children in the U.S. alone.
Last year, one of the most popular options for shoppers was the brainchild of Chrissy Teigen – a bacon and eggs design that flew off shelves.
The new spatulas will hit Williams-Sonoma on August 14 and will remain on shelves until they've sold out. The celebrity with the most popular design – meaning, the design that sells out first – will have an additional $5,000 donated to the campaign on their behalf. So if there's ever a time to throw your support behind a favorite celeb, it's right now. As for us? We're team Kristen.
