12 years ago supermodel and philanthropist Naomi Campbell founded Fashion for Relief, the charity catwalk show that has raised millions for various causes around the globe. From the fight against Ebola to funding rebuilding efforts after the Haiti earthquake, Naomi has used her platform to support the causes she believes in.

Following events in London, New York, Moscow and Mumbai, this year's show returns to Cannes. Naomi will be calling upon a number of her model friends to walk the catwalk while decked in donations from some of the world's most prestigious fashion houses. After the show, auction featuring items donated by a host of influential artists, musicians, designers, and celebrity friends will be held. The proceeds will go to Save the Children.

"A disaster can strike at any time anywhere in the world and often when it does, children are the worst affected," says Campbell. Some of these events make the news but a majority of them don't. It's a privilege to be able to work with Save The Children to raise the funds for children who most desperately need access to life-saving help."

Whether affected by refugee crises, wars, or natural disasters, Save the Children seeks to help the masses of children around the world who are in desperate need of food, shelter, and medical treatment.
