“I’m looking forward to working closely with you and your team at the U.N.,” Beckham, 40, said to the Executive Director of UNAIDS, Michel Sidibe. “I work closely with the Elton John AIDS Foundation as well as mothers2mothers. I’m a mother, I’m a woman and I want to reach out and help as many women and mothers as I can. Babies should not be born with HIV.”

This isn’t the former Spice Girl’s first charitable act, of course. The mother of four sold 600 pieces from her clothing and accessories wardrobe to raise funds for mothers2mothers in August, a charity that strives to eliminate the transmission of HIV and AIDS between mothers and their unborn children.
