Nicole and Joel: ESPRIT For The Kids

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden rocked some fashionable black-and-denim outfits at the opening of the Esprit Store on Santa Monica’s 3rd Street Promenade on Thursday evening.

The new store donated 10% of the opening night’s sales to The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation, which was started by the couple in 2008.

Nicole spoke at the event, saying “We’re very humbled. Esprit has been around for so long. I was wearing Esprit when I was a kid. It’s just so amazing that someone like Esprit is supporting something that we started, it’s actually really amazing.”

Joel twittered a picture of Nicole during the event, with the caption “Nicole looked good tonight! This was at our charity event with ESPIRIT. what a nice German company to give money to the kids…”

Misspelling the store title aside, it’s wonderful to see the couple so involved in their charity! Keep up the good work, and don’t forget to get some cute Esprit ‘duds for Harlow and the baby-to-be!
