Different relief efforts and charities have been helping to rebuild Beirut and offer different types of aid to the people affected by the devastating August 4 explosion. From homegrown brands to internationally renowned clothes and fine jewellery labels, the fashion and design communities have also been stepping up by creating various campaigns to boost donations to these supportive organisations. One of these latest fundraising projects comes from Bvlgari. The Italian luxury brand has once again teamed up with Save The Children to support those who can be described as the most dependent and vulnerable humans affected by the blast, kids.
