Sofía Vergara is bringing sexy back…to philanthropy.
The 47-year-old Modern Family star and her EBY (Empowered By You) underwear line just partnered with influencer Amanda Cerny to benefit female entrepreneurs in India with a new “Rebel with a Cause” collection.
Each of Vergara’s EBY undies collection donates 10% of proceeds to the the Seven Bar Foundation, which empowers women with microfinancing to help bring them out of poverty. Cerny’s collection introduces three unique prints inspired by the women she met on a recent trip to India with Seven Bar.
Vergara announced the collaboration on Instagram with a powerful video featuring Cerny’s conversation with a widowed mother named Gitaben Vadher, who utilized Seven Bar to help start a business weaving silk to make saris so she could support her family and send her children, one of whom is disabled, to school.
