Isabeli was born to a poor family in the Brazilian city of Curitiba, so she has a special place in her heart for those less fortunate than herself, having witnessed poverty at first hand.
After she became successful, Isabeli made generous financial contributions for many years to a local orphanage in Florianopolis. Now the mother of two sons, she is more passionate than ever about children in need. Isabeli is currently the Brazilian Ambassador for www.1love.org, an organization that works in collaboration with Save the Children.
Most recently the 1love organization was engaged in a mission to provide musical instruments to students in disadvantaged schools. Last year she also donated her time and money to the inaugural AMFAR inspirational gala in Sao Paulo, where she helped raise almost $750,000 for the foundation’s AiDS research programme.
