Rolling Stone is reporting that celebrated singer Shakira is hosting a virtual baby shower with soccer star boyfriend Gerard Piqué. The singer who is expecting a son with Piqué has asked for virtual attendees to donate life-saving supplies instead of gifts like vaccines and mosquito nets to children living in some of the world’s poorest countries. Rolling Stone reports:

Dubbed the “Inspired Gifts” program, the couple set up a “virtual living room” through Unicef – Shakira is an ambassador for the charity – where users can donate and purchase items such as a mosquito net for $5, polio vaccinations for 17 children for $10 or, for $110, a peanut-based food paste that can save an acutely malnourished child.
