Ben Affleck Designs Limited Edition Shoe Line For Charity

May 15th, 2013 7:42pm EDT

Ben Afflec Philanthropic actor Ben Affleck has joined forces with a footwear brand to design a limited edition shoe collection in aid of his Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) charity.

The Argo director, who founded ECI in order to help communities in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, has collaborated with TOMS shoes to create the line, made from brightly colored Congolese Textiles.

TOMS already operates a charity initiative which donates a pair of shoes to an impoverished child for every pair sold and, in addition to the existing practice, bosses at the company have also agreed to donate $5 towards ECI programs.

Ben, the boundless humanitarian, recently lived on 1.50 a day to raise poverty awareness for the charity Live Below the Line.
