Remember when Linda Evangelista joked that models don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day? Well, 20-some-odd years later, models are doing a lot more than appearing in George Michael videos and throwing cellphones at harried assistants. Coco Rocha, the Canadian model who has walked the runways for Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton and Christian Lacroix, is giving back by visiting Haiti, one year after the earthquake. She will be delivering letters as part of the Letters to Haiti campaign, which is a sort of pen-pal program through which people can offer support to those in Haiti beyond the usual faceless donations. If you want Coco to find out or do anything specific while she’s there, you can let her know in the comment section of her blog.
