Zendaya posted this picture to Instagram and captioned it, "Love supporting positive things like this... #watchhungerstop @michaelkors." Not only is the actress supporting Michael Kors' new campaign (for every watch sold, 100 children will receive a nutritious meal from the World Food Programme), but she is also the ambassador of Convoy of Hope. Convoy of Hope is a faith-based nonprofit organization geared towards providing food and hope to impoverished communities. Zendaya is obviously the true MVP.
