small change = BIG DIFFERENCE.
"BUY (RED) IT SAVES LIVES"
thus far this campaign + sales have saved 3.5 million lives.
WE can do something.
4,100 children.men.women die EVERYDAY in sub-saharan africa (where i live!). from this treatable and preventable disease.
67% of people living with HIV/AIDS live in sub-saharan, even though only 11% of the population lives in SUB-S-AFRICA, 22 million people living right now with the disease in such a such a small part of the world, it boggles my mind.
to put it into perspective: it is the equivalent to the ENTIRE population of Australia!!!
stella is an inspiration of mine. not only for her beautiful designs but for her heart. passion for the environment and all that encompasses it.
she was in TIMES top 100 most influential people.
here is a blurb that her bud Gwyneth paltrow wrote.
true true true beauty.
something that is very CLOSE to my heart.
after losing two of the most important people in my life to this...
both my mother and grandmother.
i want to help fight and give word.
educate the importance of embracing our womanhood.
prevention = cure.
JUST the power of a simple idea.
i wanted to share my heart for charity and fashion.
something that has a huge place in my life.
the two coexist and that there is SO much more to "fashion".
fashion/style comes from within. simple as that.
we all posses a different style because we were all blessed with a giving and loving heart.
i do not want to get too deep or try to "preach", but i am extremely passionate about helping... loving...sharing...and giving with my resources and by providing an ear to listen to anyone and everyone...
stella and Bono are two individuals who TRULY inspire me.
they posses hearts and a voice that ARE saving peoples lives everyday.
and they are doing it through this crazy world of fashion.
yes, i shop, yes i can buy into the materialistic side of fashion.
but i am aware. try to educate myself and give in all ways possible too.
THANK you guys. for everything.
your love and support is something i truly value.
yes. i am a cheese ball, but i HONESTLY just care so much, about everyone and everything in my life.
including this blog which does form part of my life.
this is just something i had to share.
thanks for taking the time to read this.
it means so much.
