The 28-year-old, who co-founded charity organisation 'Campaign Happiness' in a bid to help locals rebuild, has now teamed up with bosses at eco-friendly fashion firm 'Alternative Apparel' to create a trendy satchel, Contactmusic reported.
The initiative is to raise money for Port-au-Prince school Artists for Peace and Justice.
