A team both on-screen and off, Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette recently announced that they are collaborating on a new project for a good cause.
The Cougar Town star and her hubby of 10 years, who are parents to 5-year-old daughter Coco, have partnered with US jeweller Satya to create a new line to raise money and awareness in the fight against Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare and sometimes fatal genetic disorder characterized by extremely fragile skin. The butterfly-adorned pieces range in price from $24 to $348.
“There is a beautiful child named Brendon, the son of one of our dear friends, Andrea Pett Joseph, who was born with Epidermolysis Bullosa or EB,” David tells Vogue.com. “We were not aware of the condition until it affected us personally but, of course, once we got to know this incredible child we wanted to do whatever we could to help.”
David, who also works closely with Feeding America and LA-area food pantries, says that their daughter Coco inspires him and Courteney want to do whatever they can to help others.
“I think becoming a parent redefines your understanding of love and compassion. Beyond spirituality, it is about being a good person and doing what you can to make a difference and make this world a better place. It is important to do positive things in your life.”
