Shakira, the popular singer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, along with her partner Gerard Piqué, a football player for FC Barcelona, are hosting an online baby shower. The event aims to raise support for disadvantaged babies around the world. Shakira, who hails from Colombia, can be seen in an undisclosed picture while she was pregnant with Piqué’s child. Fans and friends are welcome to take part in this initiative on January 16th, 2013.
During a baby shower, there are many affordable yet meaningful gift options available. For instance, a mere $5 can buy a mosquito net that will guarantee a child’s safety from the life-threatening disease called malaria. This disease is one of the primary causes of death among children worldwide. Additionally, for $10, guests can purchase polio vaccines that could protect up to 17 children from contracting this viral infection, which currently has no cure. Lastly, for only US$37, a baby-weighing scale can be purchased to monitor the baby’s growth in their crucial first years of life.
