Apart from being a successful model, Naomi Campbell has organized charities for a cause similar to the theme of the Global Citizens Festival which is raising funds to eradicate poverty. She has a history of working for several Nelson Mandela benefits.
In 1998, she hosted a charity benefit where she organized a Versace fashion show to support The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. This fashion show was held in Nelson Mandela’s South African presidential residence.
She loved Mandela and contributed generously to his party campaigns and humanitarian cause. In fact, Nelson Mandela referred to her as his honorary granddaughter.
