Fans can join the couple's online baby shower by visiting their virtual living room. They can then purchase an "Inspired Gift," which are life-saving items distributed to children in need. The Voice mentor's fans can buy a $5 mosquito net, $10 polio vaccine, $37 baby-weighing scale or $110 Therapeutic Food that helps malnourished children.

After purchasing a gift, donors will receive a personal thank you message from Shakira and Pique. 

"Every expectant parent around the world shares all the same hopes and dreams for their children that we do," Shakira, who is expecting a baby boy, says. "Yet many don’t share the same opportunities. Together we know we can change that."
