Tommy Hilfiger Adds Eyewear to Uganda-Boosting "Millennium Promise" Line
Tom Cruise should ditch his Ray-Bans for sunnies that do more than keep out the glare. After all, his missus is the international brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger’s “The Promise Collection,” a range of clothing and accessories that supports efforts to halve extreme poverty by 2015. Together with eyewear manufacturer Safilo , the brand is releasing a limited selection of sunglasses with the same bold, African-inspired motifs. And like the original Promise line, all proceeds from the sale of the eyewear will benefit the Millennium Villages Project , an initiative that provides the means and resources to create self-sufficient—and self-sustaining—communities.
