As we close 2013, we’re taking stock of our commitment to corporate social responsibility. With new philanthropic initiatives, like Chime for Change, and new eco certifications, including a Gucci first: metal-free leather used in one of our Bamboo bags, we’re heading into the New Year even more motivated to accomplish our corporate mission.
Here’s a gift that truly makes a difference. This holiday season, we're continuing our partnership with UNICEF by introducing the special edition Gucci UNICEF Nice tote. As versatile as it is elegant, this beauty comes with a do-gooder bonus—25 percent of the retail price of every bag purchased goes to UNICEF to support their "Schools for Africa" and "Schools for Asia" initiatives.
Holiday sparkle, with a conscience. With a certification from the Responsible Jewelry Council, a worldwide non-profit that monitors social and environmental issues throughout the jewelry industry, Gucci guarantees that its fine jewelry meets the highest possible standards in every way. Enjoy our diamonds—conflict-free.

The world’s most tech-savvy females gathered in San Francisco earlier this month for a hackathon, sponsored by Twitter and Chime for Change, Gucci’s worldwide movement for the empowerment of girls and women. The three-day event had a single mission: to develop mobile applications that help solve problems for women and girls in need. The result? Bold new technological initiatives and a strengthened sense of community.

Since 2006, Gucci has partnered with Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation to help restore and preserve silver screen gems. The tradition continued this year, as we presented our latest project— the restoration of Nicholas Ray’s "Rebel Without a Cause." The new 4K digital restoration of the 1955 James Dean classic is the 10th film we’ve helped restore. To learn more about our other film initiatives,
