Disneynature’s African Cats

Celebrating both Disneynature’s new film African Cats and the strong bond between a mother and child, Alex Woo attended a special screening of the Disneynature film.

In theaters on Earth Day, other attendees included Today Show host Natalie Morales, model and one of the first Goodwill Ambassadors to the African Wildlife Foundation Veronica Vařeková, actresses Brooke Shields and Keri Russell, and director Sofia Coppola to support the film.

The Disneynature film, African Cats, takes a journey into the grasslands of Africa, giving the viewer a real life look into what it’s like to be a part of the wildest place on Earth.

ABC News – Jewelry Designer Alex Woo Designs Pendant Inspired by New Film “African Cats” to Benefit the AWF

NEW YORK, PRNewswire — In celebration of Disneynature’s new film “African Cats” and the 50th anniversary of the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), New York jeweler Alex Woo designed a special pendant that captures the true love and beauty of the majestic kings of the savanna.  The designer is donating 20% of the proceeds from the pendant to the AWF.  Inspired by a story set against the backdrop of one of the wildest places on earth, the design spotlights the enduring relationships between a mother and her young.

“As a new mother myself, I was really touched by the story of the mother and the cubs in the film,” Woo said. “All mothers share a common bond of wanting to protect and nurture their child as best they can. So that was the story I wanted to tell through my design.”

The exceptional pendant, featuring a baby cub and its mother, depicts both the theme of wildlife in the movie and the protective bond all mothers have for their children. This premise is one that is particularly close to Woo’s heart and she volunteered the design to continue her support for conservation in Africa.

Designed in Sterling Silver and 14kt Yellow Gold, the different styles are available at www.alexwoo.com and other fine specialty stores.
