Gigi Hadid announced her intention to donate her earnings from fall fashion shows to the people of Ukraine and Palestine.

“Having a set Fashion Month schedule has meant that my colleagues and I often present new fashion collections during heartbreaking and traumatic times in history,” the supermodel said in an Instagram post Saturday.

“We don’t have control over most of our work schedules, but we would like to walk ‘for’ something. Following in the footsteps of my friend @micarganaraz, I am pledging to donate my earnings from the Fall 2022 shows to aid those suffering from the war in Ukraine, as well as continuing to support those experiencing the same in Palestine,” she continued.

The 26-year-old also called for peace as she denounced the ongoing military invasion in Ukraine. “Our eyes and hearts must be open to all human injustice. May we all see each other as brothers and sisters, beyond politics, beyond race, beyond religion. At the end of the day, innocent lives pay for war- not leaders. HANDS OFF UKRAINE. HANDS OFF PALESTINE. PEACE. PEACE. PEACE,” she said.

Hadid’s post was accompanied by a gallery of photos taken during this season’s runway shows.

Over a million followers liked Hadid’s post and many others commented positively on her post, including designer Jeremy Scott who wrote, “Love this.” Social media influencer Bretman Rock wrote, “G” with a heart emoji and Donatella Versace replied with five heart emojis to Hadid’s post.

The supermodel joins quite a few celebs who have expressed their support to the people of Ukraine, including Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Ukraine-born Mila Kunis and husband Ashton Kutcher, and “Dancing With The Stars” ballroom dancing champion Maksim Chmerkovskiy in speaking up against the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis.

Kunis, on Thursday, started a "Stand With Ukraine" GoFundMe campaign with Kutcher and pledged to donate $3 million to the campaign to help refugees fleeing her native country. The couple is aiming to raise $30 million for Flexport.org and Airbnb.org.

Flexport is an organization that is organizing shipments of relief goods to refugee sites in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova. Similarly, Airbnb.org is providing free, short-term housing to refugees leaving Ukraine.

Chmerkovskiy’s wife Peta Murgatroyd announced Saturday they have plans to help Ukrainian refugees, a few days after her husband returned to the U.S. from the war-torn country.
