As part of the Louis Vuitton for UNICEF partnership, the Maison presents a new collection of Silver Lockit bracelets designed by Virgil Abloh.
In Support of UNICEF
With the #MAKEAPROMISE campaign, Louis Vuitton contributes to UNICEF’s work of bringing life-saving support to vulnerable children all over the world. Since the partnership’s launch in 2016, Louis Vuitton has raised over $18 million for UNICEF through the sale of the Silver Lockit collections, with new versions of the bracelet launched annually.
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE “LOUIS VUITTON FOR UNICEF” CAMPAIGN?
Louis Vuitton is committed to help provide care and protection to the world’s most vulnerable children exposed to conflicts, diseases, natural disasters and other issues that threaten their safety and well-being. Launched in 2016, Louis Vuitton has made a promise to help these children through it's ongoing partnership with UNICEF.
WHY HAS LOUIS VUITTON CHOSEN TO SUPPORT UNICEF AND ITS FOCUS ON CHILDREN?
Louis Vuitton is a House that treasures its past, while embracing the future. Louis Vuitton has always been a family business, transmitting values from generation to generation. Over the course of many years, we have naturally come to the wish to support children worldwide. We would like to provide help and care to those who are in urgent need.
HOW DOES LOUIS VUITTON HELP CHILDREN WITHIN THE UNICEF PARTNERSHIP?
Together with employees and customers, Louis Vuitton is building a community of supporters and actively raising funds throughout the year for children caught up in humanitarian crises. Louis Vuitton has specially designed products for this purpose and organizes fundraising activities through ad-hoc events (internally and externally). We will use our assets to communicate and raise awareness worldwide. Funds raised through this campaign will be donated to UNICEF to help children in urgent need.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
The Silver Lockit jewellery collection has been specially designed and created by Louis Vuitton for this ongoing campaign, with new collections released annually.

- 3 First Aid kits with essential medical supplies to heal and protect children against infections,

CAN I GET A TAX REFUND FOR THE DONATION?

HOW CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT UNICEF'S WORK?
UNICEF believes that every child born into this world has the right to a childhood and a fair chance in life. But for millions of children, their rights are brutally violated and their hopes destroyed nowhere is the harsh reality more apparent than in the lives of children caught up in humanitarian crises. Funds raised by Louis Vuitton will help enable UNICEF to bring support and assistance to at least tens of thousands of children affected by natural disasters, conflicts and diseases.
