Renee Zellweger Is Tommy Hilfiger's New Gal.

Renee Zellweger is the newest face of Tommy Hilfiger's charity initiative in partnership with Breast Health International. Starting in 2007, Hilfiger has designed a special bag each year with proceeds going towards Fund for Living, a charity which gives financial support to women fighting breast cancer.

Renee says her involvement in the initiative is actually very selfishly motivated, influenced in most part by friends and family members who have gone through cancer treatment. But whatever the reason, you still have to applaud her for participating. Renee loves the idea behind the project and says:
This is one of my favorite things about this initiative, and I love that Tommy Hilfiger has supported it for five years. It’s very real, very direct, helping women in their personal struggles, buying a wig or allowing them to hire a babysitter or to take a taxi when they don’t feel like they can ride the bus.
This year, the bag designed is a simple tan suede tote with golden hardware. It retails for $299 and $100 of each purchase will go towards the initiative. The bags hit stores globally in mid-April.
