She’s later joined by supermodel Joanna Krupa and The Bachelor’s Prince Lorenzo Borghese who are each passionate about rescuing animals.


Joanna Krupa

Born in Warsaw, Poland and raised in Chicago, Joanna Krupa is a supermodel and TV host who splits her time between Miami and Los Angeles. At 20 she decided to pick up and leave everything behind and move to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of modeling and acting. Joanna has appeared on over 100 covers world-wide including Cosmo, Shape, etc. and been named the sexiest swimsuit model in the world by magazines GQ, Maxim, and Playboy. In addition, Maxim magazine listed her as part of their "Hot 100" ranking of the world's hottest women years in a row. This versatile beauty has guest starred on episodes of Las Vegas, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and has been hosting and judging Poland's Next Top Model since 2010. She also competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2009 with five-time champion Derek Hough. Joanna has starred in several ad campaigns for PETA. As an avid animal supporter, Joanna started her own rescue called Angels for Animal Rescue with many rescue animals in her foster care. She has been engaged to Romain Zago, owner of Miami's hottest spot, Mynt nightclub, for five years. Joanna will be launching a few new projects including the Joanna Krupa Swimwear Collection by Hapari, a skincare line called Cellogica available at the end of this year, and a jewelry collection by Zicana available now.

Prince Lorenzo Borghese

Prince Lorenzo Borghese is a US and Italian citizen who was born in Milan, lived in Rome and outside Paris, and currently lives in New York City. Proud of his genealogy, his storied paternal ancestors include the cosmetic’s icon, Princess Marcella Borghese, Napoleon’s sister, Paulina Bonaparte Borghese,  Pope Paul V (Camillo Borghese) and Cardinal Scipione Borghese, both of whom had an enormous influence on Italian art and beautifying Rome in the 1600s, and who helped finish St. Peter's Basilica.

The Borghese name is displayed throughout Italy including in Florence at the Palazzo Borghese, Siena, where the family began, and Rome where the name is most prominent.  Rome’s largest Park, Villa Borghese, was owned by the family until 1902 and one of Rome’s largest museums, Galleria Borghese, holds the family’s art collection.  One of Rome’s most famous streets is also named after the family, Via Borghese, and the family’s crest which is an eagle and dragon can be found in many piazzas throughout Italy.

Lorenzo is also President and co-founder of Animal Aid USA, a not-for-profit organization which through awareness and legislation, aims to stop the inhumane treatment of animals. In July of 2012 Animal Aid USA organized the Amazing Grace Caravan, named after Grace, a dog who survived the gas chamber in 2006.
