Naomi Campbell’s been on a fierce campaign to raise funds for various causes through her Fashion for Relief organization this year. This week the runway sensation stopped by Dolce & Gabbana’s London flagship store to hand over a generous 94,000-pound check to the British Red Cross to help people affected by last year's Pakistan floods.

The funds were raised through a collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana, which celebrated the 25th anniversary of Naomi’s career with a collection of limited edition T-shirts. The tees, which were sold exclusively at Dolce & Gabbana boutiques, featured iconic images of Naomi shot by photographers including Steven Meisel, Steven Klein and Mario Testino.


Last year the British Red Cross Pakistan Floods Appeal helped bring food, water, sanitation and other emergency aid to almost half a million people, and Naomi's donation will help them continue to aid flood-affected commumunities recover from the disaster.


Since founding Fashion for Relief in 2005, Campbell has united her celebrity and designer friends to organized runway shows and pop-up stores that have raised funds for several other causes, including Hurricane Katrina relief, Japan tsunami relief and the U.K.'s Prince's Trust youth charity. To date, the organization has raised over £4.8 milliion from events in London, Mumbai, Moscow, Dar Es Salaam and Cannes.
