Montblanc Continues Its Charitable Streak With Their "Signature For Good" Initiative, Benefitting UNICEF

LOS ANGELES, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Saturday, February 23, 2013 marked the official launch of  Montblanc's Signature For Good Collection with UNICEF, whereby Montblanc hopes to provide children access to quality education. This collection reinforces Montblanc's long-term commitment to children's education and UNICEF.

To celebrate the launch of the collection, Montblanc  hosted a pre-Oscar charity brunch with UNICEF at the Hotel Bel-Air.  Academy award winner  Hilary Swank  made a special appearance to speak about the importance of the initiative and shed light on her recent visit to Ethiopia with Montblanc and UNICEF. For every piece in the  Signature For Good Collection sold between March 1, 2013 and March 1, 2014 Montblanc will donate part of its proceeds to raise at least $1.5 million to support the UNICEF education programs worldwide.

Additional celebrities who lent their support to the cause and attended the brunch were Emmy Rossum, Rosario Dawson (actress), UNICEF Ambassador Alyssa Milano, Louise Roe, Alan Arkin, Billy Zane, Jesse Metcalfe, Peter Fonda, Jesse Williams, Jane Seymour, Clemens Schick, Rachel Griffiths and many more.

Montblanc Signature For Good Collection includes a special edition of writing instruments, jewelry and leather accessories, all of which feature a unique brick design symbolizing the joint effort of building a better future for all children and their communities by improving access to quality education, including the construction of schools – brick by brick. For every piece in the "Signature for Good" Collection sold between 1 March 2013 and 31 March 2014, Montblanc will donate part of its proceeds to raise at least $1.5 million dollars to UNICEF's education programmes, focusing on the most vulnerable children, through the Schools for Africa and Asia initiatives, and programmes in Latin America. 

With a heritage deeply rooted in the culture of writing, Montblanc has always been committed to the support of education and literacy.  For nearly a decade, Montblanc has taken an active role in supporting UNICEF's efforts to enable more children to learn how to read and write, with several global initiatives together raising over $5 million dollars to date. With the new "Signature For Good" Collection, Montblanc is building on the success of the first "Signature For Good" initiative launched in 2009 and pledging to raise in 2013 at least $1.5 million dollars.

For this special Montblanc "Signature For Good" Collection, the design of the Meisterstuck has been revisited with unique detailing. Available as a Classique Fountain Pen, Rollerball, and Ballpoint Pen and in the bolder LeGrand size, the black precious resin writing instrument features a cap top ring designed with the symbolic rectangular brick pattern. The blue sapphire set in this ring is inspired by UNICEF's blue colour and the work it accomplishes to improve children's lives. Other pieces in the collection include handcrafted leather wallets, cardholders, a pen pouch and notebook with blue lining decorated with the symbolic brick design. The leather used by Montblanc for the Signature For Good Collection is Italian full-grain printed calfskin. The distinctive pattern on the leather is a series of diagonal lines. Cuff links with reversible surfaces of onyx and stainless steel, bracelets and key rings, all embellished with a sapphire, make up the jewellery selection.
