Cindy Crawford re-created her famous Pepsi commercial for a good cause. The model, 55, donned daisies and whipped out a Pepsi can as she returned to the original Halfway House Cafe to pay tribute to her late brother Jeff, who died of cancer when he was three years old.

Jeff was treated for leukemia at the American Family Children’s Hospital in Wisconsin, and the reproduced photo is being used to generate cash for the hospital.

On Tuesday, Cindy captioned an Instagram image with the recreated shot, “It’s always a pleasure and a thrill to work with my friend @davidyarrow… and even more so when it’s for a good cause.” “We went back to the famous @pepsi commercial I made in 1992 to recreate the moment (with a David Yarrow twist) in the hopes of raising donations for the American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, where my brother was treated for leukemia.”

“So far, we’ve raised one million dollars for the cause thanks to David’s global gallery network backing the art and its sales,” the model stated. “I also have to thank my dear friend, hairstylist @peter.savic, who created the famous hair for the first commercial… I was pleased he could be present for this version as well!” She also praised her makeup artist Sam Visser and stylist Nicole Allowitz Skolnik, as well as the rest of her glam squad. “I can’t wait to show you more,” Cindy added.

During an appearance on Oprah’s Master Class on OWN in 2015, the model spoke out to Oprah Winfrey about her brother’s disease, stating that he was diagnosed at the age of two. Cindy and her sisters Chris and Danielle remarked, “I suppose when my parents first informed us our brother was unwell, we didn’t really comprehend what it meant.” “The word ‘cancer’ was not used.” She described a particularly terrible experience she had when she didn’t fully comprehend death.

“I don’t think I realized it was terminal at the age of ten, and I hadn’t had any close encounter with death and didn’t understand death,” she explained. “My brother was aware of it. I know for sure since my mother stated she found him sitting in his room at one point. ‘What are you doing?’ she asked as he sat at his small table. ‘I’m praying,’ he added. ‘What are you praying for?’ she inquired. ‘So that when I die, you’ll be okay,’ he murmured. “As a mother now, I can’t image hearing your child say that,” she continued.

Since then, the model has been a vocal supporter of pediatric cancer research. Cindy partnered with the American Red Cross and the American Cancer Society in February to encourage people to give blood to cancer patients. “This is a diagnosis that affects the entire family. “It affects everyone,” she said of the sickness to InStyle. “And we feel helpless, but even something as simple as donating blood can help. There’s something you can do about it.”
