After the terrifying blast of August 4, she started using her platform to support disaster relief initiatives by sharing their posts with her followers and launched her own to raise funds for the devastated Beirut.
She did so by auctioning off the notorious “Mia Khalifa glasses” to donate 100% of the funds to the Lebanese Red Cross, an independent organization working for, and totally trusted by, the Lebanese people.
Having become a trademark since the days of her past career, Mia’s glasses are recognizable worldwide. Her Instagram bio says it all, “Are you even a brown girl with glasses if you haven’t been called “Mia Khalifa”?”
