The Hear the World Foundation has welcomed the support of two legendary supermodels: Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista, who are now championing the cause of the non-profit foundation, whose vision is a world in which everyone has the chance to enjoy good hearing. As ambassadors, the models have had their pictures taken by famous photographer and musician Bryan Adams with one hand behind an ear – the Hear the World pose synonymous with conscious hearing.
Cindy Crawford, the woman who sports the world’s most famous beauty spot, is a legendary supermodel who shot to fame in the 1990s. Now a successful businesswoman and mother to a son and daughter, she is regarded as an American icon.
“Helping children who have hearing loss to hear is connecting them with world, and that is why I support the Hear the World Foundation,” said Crawford, in an announcement about her new role as an ambassador for the Hear the World Foundation, supporting children with hearing loss.
Canadian Linda Evangelista was also part of the generation of supermodels who made their name in the 90s. With her distinctive look and versatility, she conquered the catwalks and magazine covers of the fashion world.
As committed ambassadors, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista are in good company: More than 90 celebrities, including Sting, Kate Moss, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Joss Stone, Plácido Domingo, and Annie Lennox, have declared their support for Hear the World and had their photographs taken in the conscious hearing pose by Bryan Adams. They all contribute to raising public awareness for the importance of good hearing.
