To help raise funds for Oxfam's response to the Haiti earthquake, international actress and face of MANGO, Scarlett Johansson has designed an exclusive handbag. Part of the profits will be donated to Intermon Oxfam.

The Haiti handbag will be distributed in all MANGO stores worldwide from February. It will be exclusively available in more than 1390 MANGO stores worldwide, and its selling price will be $29.90.

The print on the handbag represents the ancient cartography of Haiti, and contains the message “Supporting the people of Haiti” written and signed by the actress.

On this matter, Scarlett Johansson said: “I'm thrilled to be collaborating with Mango to promote conscious consumerism and to benefit Oxfam's Haiti Earthquake Response Fund. By purchasing this bag, which I specially designed, you are helping to provide life saving assistance like clean water to the people of Haiti."

Ninona Vila, Corporate PR Director said: “Given the terrible events that have taken place, MANGO wants to support the victims of the Haiti earthquake. For this reason, we want to offer our clients the chance to collaborate in this project, as there are many people who need help.”
