Shakira isn't taking her partnership with the 2010 World Cup, hosted by South Africa, lightly.

In addition to performing her hit single and the official World Cup anthem "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" at the opening ceremonies on June 10 (while sporting these sexy Roberto Cavalli duds), the Colombian pop star is also partnering with Mango and UNICEF on a capsule collection of T-shirts benefiting the tournament's host country.

The four designs come in black, yellow, and red, with graphics including an illustration of a lion's face and the phrases "Waka Waka" and "This Time For Africa." Proceeds from the sales of the tees will benefit Shakira's Barefoot Foundation, which supports elementary education in South Africa.

"The true spirit of this World Cup involves making a lasting contribution," Shakira says in a statement. "We can add to the legacy of this historic moment a platform committed to providing quality education for the children of South Africa and to ending poverty and inequality wherever they exist."

To support the cause, you can scoop up the $22.90-$39.90 shirts at Mango stores and at
