Kitchenware giant Williams Sonoma has stirred up something special with 10 celebrities, commissioning Hollywood icons, musicians, culinary icons, and social media personalities to design its newest spatula collection for a good cause.
For its sixth annual Tools for Change fundraiser, the company invited singer Dolly Parton; actors Kristen Bell and Misha Collins; food celebrities Ina Garten, Gaby Dalkin, Curtis Stone, Giada De Laurentiis, and Molly Yeh; morning show host Hoda Kotb; and reality television star Kris Jenner to create artwork for spatulas and matching tea towels.

The design that possibly gives the most away is Parton’s illustration of her iconic butterfly. Then there’s Kris Jenner’s spatula with her famous catchphrase, “You’re doing amazing, sweetie!”
For every US$14.95 spatula, a portion of the profit will be donated to No Kid Hungry, which pledges to end child hunger in America. Williams Sonoma says a single sale will provide up to 40 meals.
Some of the designs also arrive in tea towel form. With every sale of a U$12.95 tea towel, the charity will be able to afford 35 additional meals.
“I’ve often said that I never had children of my own so that all children could be mine,” Parton said in a press release. “The thought of anyone going hungry is horrible but knowing that it’s a child is simply heartbreaking… I have always seen a butterfly as a symbol of freedom and beauty, and I hope this butterfly comes into your home sharing that thought.”
