Luke Evans is an actor known for his work as Bard the Bowman in "The Hobbit" trilogy. He is also starring as Gaston in the upcoming Disney movie, "Beauty and the Beast." Now, he is using his influence to help kids with Bulgari.

The Italian jeweller, Bulgari, has teamed up with Luke Evans to support the UK-based charity called "Save the Children." In 2009, Bulgari decided to make jewels that will benefit "Save the Children." They did this by creating a ring that can be worn by both men and women.

What makes this ring special is the engraving on it. The ring is based on the B.Zero1 design and has a black ceramic set into silver. It cost £420, as reported by The Jewelry Editor. This ring made a huge difference. Every £60 taken from the purchase price has helped Bulgari raise over £50 million. The funds raised has helped kids in 33 different countries. In total, their efforts has helped over one million underprivileged kids around the world.

What made this charity even more promising is the help of many A-list actors like Luke Evans, as reported by Save the Children. Evans is a Bulgari brand ambassador as well as an ambassador for the charity group. On November 2016, the "The Girl on the Train" actor went to India to raise awareness regarding "Save the Children's" education program which included the Mobile Learning Center.

According to reports, 18 million kids do not have access to education. This is considerably the highest number globally. Luke Evans personally went to Mumbai and Pune to check out how the Mobile Learning Center has helped shape the future of these kids.

Luke Evans realized that these kids may have never had the opportunity to read a book. After seeing the smiles on their faces, he knows that they will have a better life. For this "Beauty and the Beast" actor, his visit to India will stay with him forever.

Bulgari and "Save the Children" also created the #RaiseYourHand campaign. Check out the Fashion TV video below:
