If you’ve ever wanted to own something personally created by a celebrity — now is your chance. Some pretty well-known names are teaming up with Williams-Sonoma to design spatulas, all to help fight childhood hunger.
This year, Williams-Sonoma’s seventh annual fundraising program to benefit No Kid Hungry is aiming to raise $2.5 million, or 25 million meals. To help achieve the goal and raise awareness, they’re partnering up with celebrities, chefs, athletes, musicians and social influencers to take part in the fifth annual Tools for Change program. Each partner has designed a limited-edition spatula for sale at Williams-Sonoma stores and online. Take a look:
Williams SonomaThis year’s collection of spatulas costs $13.95 each, with 30 percent of the price benefiting No Kid Hungry. Fifteen celebrities designed spatulas for the fundraiser, including some big names like Gwen Stefani, Kevin Bacon, Ina Garten, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Scarlett Johansson.
“There is absolutely no reason any child living in America should go hungry. But they do,” Johansson said in a press release. “That is why I am proud to be able to partner with Williams-Sonoma to support No Kid Hungry, an organization that helps bring food to children in the U.S. that are in need, so they have the nourishment they need to grow into the generation that will continue to effect positive change.”

This year’s spatula designers are also competing in a “spatdown,” posting about the campaign on social media with the goal of selling the most spatulas. Williams-Sonoma will make a $5,000 donation to No Kid Hungry on behalf of the winner. If you want to watch the “spatdown” competition unfold, just follow Williams-Sonoma on Instagram.
Since beginning to work with No Kid Hungry, Williams-Sonoma says the statistics have changed from 1 in 5 children in the U.S. facing hunger to 1 in 6.
“We are committed to working with No Kid Hungry in order to end childhood hunger in America,” Janet Hayes, president of Williams-Sonoma, said in a press release. “We are grateful to our customers, colleagues and corporate partners whose generosity has already helped raise more than $5.5 million and provided more than 55 million meals to help children in need across the country.”
