That Jamelia’s a good egg. As well as being a great role model for young people across the UK – she’s doing her bit for charity too nowadays.
The star, who’s apparently busy beavering away on her new album, has leant her support to Tommy’s Baby Charity to raise money for deprived communities across Africa. Tommy’s has got together with Brantano shoe shops to launch a campaign – that takes place throughout March – and is asking for us all to take old footwear including old shoes, slippers, wellies or even flip flops to any Brantano store and they will donate 10p for each pair to Tommy’s Baby Charity. Oh, and on top of this the shoe shop will give you a £10.00 money off voucher when you spend £40.00 in a single transaction.
With the support of her daughters Teja, eight, and Tiani, three, the star posed up in a new campaign for the charity last week. And how fun are the shots? She looks so cute! And look how grown up her kiddies have got! Bless! Jamelia said: “I am lucky enough to have two beautiful children, and I cannot begin to imagine what life would be like without them. I was utterly shocked to learn 1 in 4 women will lose a baby during pregnancy or birth, which is why I am committed to helping Tommy’s do all they can to prevent this from happening to other families.”
The singer added: “The work Tommy’s is doing with Brantano is absolutely fantastic. The idea of being able to give to charity simply by getting rid of an old pair of shoes is terrific. For only £1 you can also show your support by wearing one of the cute Tommy’s pin badges or phone charms, I know I’ll be wearing mine.”
