Baby showers are one of the most anticipated couples who are soon parents to be. Friends and families come over to give advices, gifts and celebrate the soon arrival of the new member of the family. The usual showers are done with gift giving, sharing of dedications, games, food sharing and any ideas that would make the event fun and worthwhile. However, there is a couple well known in the showbiz industry that made a different twist for their baby shower that wouldn’t just be worthwhile but also fulfilling. Shakira the famous singer we knew from hips don’t lie and her fiancé, soccer star, Gerard Pique offered make their baby shower available all over the world and not for their kid to have lots of gifts when she or he comes out of this world, but to share lots of gifts to millions of parents who would like to give the best to their future children as well.
The well known singer as the United Nation’s goodwill ambassador, wanted to share blessings to those expectant parents as well, she and her husband opened their doors top receiving donations from 5 to 110 US dollars instead of receiving gifts for their baby boy. The couple even took a picture together in a black and white to be posted in the virtual baby shower to emphasize that this event will be showcased mainly to help people in the third world countries. The expectant parent’s reason for having this is clearly stated in Shakira’s statement during an interview “Every expectant parent around the world shares all the same hopes and dreams for their children that we do. Yet many don’t share the same opportunities. Together we know we can change that.” Shakira and Gerard Pique’s baby shower can be seen online through this website: http://shakira.socialtoaster.com/. The program aims to purchase mosquito nets to avoid malaria, peanut butter based paste that will improve the health of children there preventing them from being undernourished and other items that could be of good help to the people there.
