Some of the percentages of the proceeds are donated to her organization and to coding camps that houses teenagers belonging to the 13-18 age group.
Emma Watson is someone who walks the talk and besides launching the popular #HeForShe movement, the star actively donates for UNICEF instead of just taking the easy way out and just delivering the birthday or holiday cards.
