UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Shakira and FC Barcelona star Gerard Piqué are inviting friends and fans today to join their online baby shower – in support of the world's most vulnerable babies.

"To celebrate the arrival of our first child, we hope that, in his name, other less privileged children in the world can have their basic needs covered through gifts and donations," says Shakira. 

At the baby shower, you can learn about UNICEF's Inspired Gifts - real, life-saving items distributed to children and communities in some of the poorest corners of the globe.

The baby shower Inspired Gifts cost as little as £7, which can provide polio vaccinations for over 50 children.

A £31 gift can provide life-saving salts for at least 100 children and help them recover from diarrhoea and dehydration.

"Every expectant parent around the world shares all the same hopes and dreams for their children that we do,"says Shakira. “Yet many don’t share the same opportunities. Together we know we can change that."
