Forget those pricey designer bags, (Ralph Lauren not withstanding).  Lauren Bush Lauren has a better idea.  The fashion model and designer is also the founder of FEED  started in 2006 when she designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Program's (WFP) School Feeding operations. 

Lauren, a WFP Honorary Spokesperson who has visited eight WFP food aid operations around the world, was inspired by the plight of the people she met on her travels. She took a special interest in WFP's School Feeding program, which feeds and educates hungry children.  Bush was presented with  The 2012 McCall-Pierpaoli Humanitarian Award at this year's benefit for Refugees International.
