The collaboration between Theirworld and Astley Clarke was celebrated in LA yesterday at a reception attended by a host of British and American celebrities backing the campaign to get every child into school.
Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster, Rainn Wilson, Minnie Driver and Piers Morgan were among the guests who added the names to the 5.7 million people who have already signed the #UpForSchool petition. It calls on governments to deliver on their promise of a quality education for every child by the end of 2015.

The reception took place at the LA residence of British Consul General Chris O’Connor. Guests saw an exhibition by photographer Simon Urwin, learned more about the work of Theirworld and its collaboration with Astley Clarke, which has designed three exclusive Theirworld bracelets.

The partnership was launched earlier this year at a reception on the Southbank in London. Astley Clarke is donating 20% of sales to the charity to be invested into projects such as #UpForSchool.
