Stars support the Hear the World Foundation with a series of striking black and white portraits. Monica Bellucci, Harry Belafonte, Sting, Georgia May Jagger: these are just a few of the many stars who have had their photos taken for the 2013 Hear the World calendar. Pictured with one hand behind the ear – the distinctive Hear the World pose synonymous with conscious hearing – they help raise awareness of a much-neglected issue: the vital importance of good hearing and the serious consequences of hearing loss. All proceeds from the sale of the calendars will go to projects supported by the charitable Hear the World Foundation, which runs a global campaign to help people in need as a result of hearing loss. The calendar is now available to buy in a limited edition from http://www.hear-the-world.com at a price of EUR 29.90/CHF 34.90 – the perfect holiday present for people who want to give an aesthetic gift and help a good cause in the process.

The children, he learned, used trash because the balls donated by relief agencies and sporting goods companies quickly ripped or deflated on the rocky dirt that doubled as football fields.
