Award-winning actress and activist Natalie Portman is set to create a limited-edition watch with designer Richard Mille. The proceeds of the piece will benefit international youth and educational charity, Free the Children.

With the involvement of more than one million youth volunteering in over 45 countries, Free the Children has the largest worldwide network of children helping children. They focus on education, clean water and improving the overall quality of life for children in various international communities.

This collaboration comes as no surprise since Portman has recently been named ambassador to the charity and has already used her profile on a couple other product initiatives including Dior and Our Generation Dolls.

In a recent interview with TIME magazine, Portman talked about what she has learned about the age-old craft of watch making and what incited her to the partnership with Mille.

“It was an incredible opportunity to get a look into this world, and they’ve been really committed to helping pursue this charitable endeavor with Free the Children, so that commitment was really meaningful to me, too.”

It is fantastic to see such huge names lending support to Free the Children. This amazing organization helps bring hope and progress to children in developing regions, while empowering and expanding the perspectives of the youth volunteering from developed nations. It is a cause near and dear to my heart, as I was once one of those volunteering youths, and it definitely changed my life for the better.
