Gisele Bundchen Becomes UN Goodwill Ambassador
Brazilian-born supermodel Gisele Bundchen has been named Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme. Her role as Ambassador is to "raise awareness and inspire action to protect the environment", according to a United Nations press release.
Bundchen was appointed Goodwill Ambassador on Sunday in Washington Square Park in New York City. Gisele Bundchen and her husband, football player Tom Brady, are expecting a child in December.
“I have been working on environmental issues for a long time and agreed to become a goodwill ambassador to be part of a global and far-reaching organization,” the Brazilian-born beauty said in a statement. “Mother Earth is our fundamental life-support system, and by becoming aware and responsible now, we can assist in preserving the planet.”
