Halle Berry says she’s a woman of compassion and Michael Kors says he’s a man of action. Together, they want to make a dent in the battle against hunger around the world.

The actress and fashion designer announced a philanthropic campaign Monday called Watch Hunger Stop that includes raising money through the sale of a version of Kors’ best-selling Runway watch. For each $295 watch sold, 100 meals will be provided to children through the U.N. World Food Programme.

Berry and Kors are planning to visit places together where the meals will be sent. They could land in Africa, in Syria, perhaps Central America.

The 46-year-old Berry, who is expecting her first child with fiance Olivier Martinez, said in an interview Saturday with Kors: “I hope we go while I’m pregnant, so I can talk about prenatal care.” Berry also has a 5-year-old daughter.
