Following on from a meeting on the 'Maleficent' film set, Stella McCartney and Angelina Jolie are teaming up for a commendable charity project

Speaking yesterday at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, Stella McCartney and Angelina Jolie teamed up to announce a charitable project with the organisation War Child UK titled 'Draw Me To Safety'. The actress has been raising awareness for a number of causes at the event, alongside British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, William Hague.

It appears that the program will invite children worldwide to make a drawing following the prompt "What makes you feel safe?" McCartney will then design an item of clothing based on the winning drawing, with the profits benefiting the organisation. 

"I hope that this campaign will bring their world closer to us all, and that many people will feel inspired to help protect vulnerable children living in conflict zones." Said Angelina Jolie of the initiative.
