Malaysian squash champion Nicol David and model Deborah Henry are representing Malaysia in Louis Vuitton and UNICEF's #MakeAPromise campaign, dedicated to supporting vulnerable children all over the world.

The campaign, which kicked off last month, also launched a special edition Silver Lockit that has a lock pendant with Louis Vuitton's monogram on it. The Lockit is available in necklace and bracelet form – these are being sold for RM2,300 each in Louis Vuitton boutiques worldwide and on louisvuitton.com/lvforunicef. With each purchase, RM900 will be donated to UNICEF.

Nicol and Deborah pledged their support to #MakeAPromise recently, wearing their own Silver Lockits. They join other celebrities like Léa Seydoux, Georgia May Jagger, Lewis Hamilton, Selena Gomez, Aimee Song, Mariah Carey, David Beckham, Miranda Kerr, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Connelly, Heidi Klum and Tao Okamoto, all of whom have made their pinky promises too.

"When children make a promise, they take it seriously," Louis Vuitton chairman and CEO Michael Burke said. "These are promises that come straight from the heart. The pinky promise is an instinctive and sincere way to seal a promise and to share it with someone close."
