Gisele BundchenThe indigenous people of the Xingu River in Brazil are suffering due to deforestation and clean water issues in the Amazon. Not to worry, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen to the rescue!

Actually, it’s quite a problem, so Gisele will be starring in a new commercial to educate the public on the issues. These include a controversial hydroelectric dam that is under construction and river pollution from cattle ranchers, loggers and soy farmers.

It’s actually World Rainforest Week from October 16-22.

Check out the whole Gisele saves the rainforest story over at Celebitchy.
