Married couple pose together in support of international charity War Child
Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh have recreated the iconic image of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s ‘Bed-in’ in support of international charity War Child.
The picture, seen above, was taken to showcase the launch of River Island’s new Come Together charity T-shirt, and sees the married couple wearing the item of clothing while adopting a similar pose to that of Lennon and Ono in the presidential suite at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel in 1969.
Profits from the Come Together T-shirt will be donated to War Child to support its work protecting the world’s most vulnerable children from the effects of war. The T-shirt is an exact replica of that worn by John Lennon at Cannes Film Festival in 1971.
Ben Knowles, Director of Fundraising at War Child commented stats that, “The photograph of John and Yoko and the morals that the couple stood for are representative of the values that we continue to have today at War Child. This T-shirt continues to spread a message of peace.”
Meanwhile, Professor Green adds: “It’s great to be involved in recreating such an iconic shot with Millie. The T-shirt is in aid of a fantastic cause and carries a strong message that hopefully everyone will get behind!”
River Island’s new Come Together charity T-shirts are available at selected River Island stores and online at riverisland.com.
