For those of you who don't know, I am a child advocate first, designer (and many other things second). Anything that I am involved in MUST have a component that relates to improving the quality of life for the child.
True to form, so does the Launch -
MyMeApparel is working with Project Night Night,
a 501(c)3 organization that is home-based in California,
to provide ONE HUNDRED comfort totes to homeless children!
MyMeApparel has purchased 100 Comfort totes from Project Night Night.
Each comfort tote will include: a blankie, a book and a stuffed animal!
** The blankies are now being hand-sewn by volunteers of MyMeApparel... Thank you ladies! (84 more to go!)
** Most of the books have been purchased. (33 more to go!)
** The stuffed animals will be purchased within the next 30 days. (100 more to go!)
... and the recipient is -
Nicholas House Homeless Shelter
How can you help with this project? Well, there is NO COST to attend the MyMeApparel Real Woman's Ready-to-Wear Fashions Launch on September 23, 2010. However, $20.00 donations will be accepted to cover the cost of each tote ... and you can have a hand in selecting the items to go into the tote that you are sponsoring! Representatives from Nicholas House will be present at the event. All totes will be taken by Nicholas House Representatives to give to the homeless children! ... and Thank You ... in advance for your support!!!
