Shakira and Gerard Piqué are inviting their fans around the world to contribute to UNICEF’s “World Baby Shower” for their soon-to-arrive second son.
The superstar, who is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and the FC Barcelona soccer player first organized a UNICEF World Baby Shower before the birth of their first son, Milan, in 2013. The donations benefited UNICEF’s international programs for children and it was such a big success for the organization, that they are once again using the opportunity to donate.

“Thanks to you, over 80,000 children will be protected from polio, almost 200,000 oral rehydration salts sachets will be distributed in times of need, the 3.8 tons of therapeutic food collected will save many children from severe acute malnutrition, among other life-saving tools that were purchased to protect babies and children,” Shakira told fans at the end of the previous campaign.
If you want to get involved, donations can be made at worldbabyshower.org. Fans can purchase “inspired gifts” in the celebrity couple’s name that include polio vaccines, blankets, water for entire families in emergency situations and therapeutic meals for children with malnutrition. Those expecting can also create their own UNICEF baby shower registry through the site to similarly benefit children in need. And anyone in the United States can also make a gift of $14.50 to receive a “limited edition” thank you card with an “exclusive” photo of Shakira and Piqué.
Shakira is set to give birth to her second son at the end of January at a private hospital in Barcelona, where the couple resides.
