Karlie Kloss is set to receive the Inspiration Award at this year’s DVF Awards because of her awesome charity work!
The model and entrepreneur will be honored at the eighth annual awards, which will be held on April 6 at the United Nations in New York. The Inspiration Award itself is given to a woman who uses her platform and experience to spark positive change.
Karlie has done quite a bit in her career in fashion. However, it’s her service work that really stands out! The 24-year-old started a company, Kode with Klossy to teach young girls computer code, all while expanding access to coding education and opportunities. Karlie has also teamed up with Momofuku Milk Bar on a vegan and gluten-free cookie line known as Klossies. Sales from the cookies have gone on to help FEED and the CFDA, providing over one million meals to those in need since its inception. Wow!
Of course, Diane von Furstenburg and the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation created the DVF Awards back in 2010. Each year, the awards honor women who are making a difference in the lives of other women. Five specific honorees are highlighted each year, with each woman receiving $50K for their non-profit organizations!
I didn’t realize just how much Karlie had going on! It’s really awesome that’s she’s using her influence to make positive impact. Congrats to her!
