Victoria Beckham uses Harper's artwork for World AIDS Day T-shirt

Victoria Beckham has used one of her five-year-old daughter Harper's drawings to create a cute charity T-shirt.

The etching is the same artwork which father David Beckham has tattooed on his hand, and now it is set to be used to raise money and awareness for World AIDS Day, a global event which takes place on 1 December (16).

Harper's drawing features a little girl wearing a red AIDS ribbon, with a bright red heart printed next to it.

Mum and designer Victoria modelled the T-shirt in a stunning photo which she posted on her Instagram page on Thursday (17Nov16), along with the caption: "Thank you @voguemagazine! My #WAD2016 t-shirts available tomorrow at #VBDoverSt and victoriabeckham.com x VB".

The children's version features the same image set against a pretty red polka dot background.

The UNAIDS Global Goodwill Ambassador has created the T-shirts to raise money to support charity Born Free Africa, a charity supported by leaders in the fashion community including Anna Wintour, Jenna Lyons, and Tory Burch, to raise awareness and to promote the Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Victoria visited Kenya in October (16) with her son Brooklyn, 17, in her capacity as a goodwill ambassador, and urged people to keep HIV and AIDS high on their agendas.

"I have recently returned from Kenya, where, in my role as a UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador, I helped promote the START FREE, STAY FREE = AIDS FREE initiative," she urged. "We need to keep HIV & AIDS on the agenda, to lobby governments and health authorities and continue to raise awareness. If we do, then we have a real opportunity to eradicate HIV & AIDS for future generations."

The exclusive T-shirts will be sold at the Victoria Beckham 36 Dover Street Store in London, as well as online at victoriabeckham.com.
