  Gabriela Hearst has teamed up with the charity Save The Children to help raise funds for children living in war-torn Yemen.

The Uruguayan designer is donating 100% of the net proceeds from her eponymous luxury label's in-store and online sales to the non-profit, from December 2 through December 9.

“Save the Children is one of the largest non-profit organizations on the ground in Yemen. The humanitarian crisis has fallen out of media discourse, given the speed of our current news state. The catastrophe is present and needs as much help as possible,” Hearst said in a statement.

“For me personally the holiday spirit should be about giving, and this is why we are donating all net proceeds to this important cause. I have deep admiration for the past, present, and future work of Save the Children.” Hearst affirmed.

This is not the first time Hearst has worked with Save The Children -- in September it was announced that she had partnered with the luxury retailer Mytheresa to create an 18-piece ‘Mytheresa woman' collection, with 20% of the sales proceeds being directed towards the non-profit organization.
