GivingTracker| Supermodel Gisele Bundchen, expecting her first child in December, was named a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program in New York’s Washington Square Park yesterday.
“The environment has always been my passion,’’ Bundchen said. “I grew up in a small town and I had the opportunity to live surrounded by nature. I couldn’t have asked for a better childhood. We must act now, so future generations have the same opportunity. Mother Earth is our fundamental life-support system, and by becoming aware and responsible now, we can assist in preserving the planet.’’ via Boston Globe
