I’m thankful for so many things in my career, but the one thing I’m most appreciative of is that I can use my position to try to help others. Over the last year I’ve had the pleasure to work with and get to know the good people who run Lakay Pam - an organization dedicated to helping children in Haiti meet their most basic needs. Over the next few months I’ll have some exciting news to announce with regards to how I’m going to work with them further. Until then, please enjoy this video we made at the last Lakay Pam benefit I was privileged to host:
Here we are, Monday of THE busiest week in fashion. Tomorrow night is the first ever Fashions Night Out runway show put on by Vogue magazine. I’ll be one of over 150 models walking in the largest fashion show New York city has ever seen. More than 1,500 ticket holding guests will be spectators in person with millions more watching the live stream on CBS.com - If that wasn’t enough, you can watch a whole CBS documentary about Fashions Night Out on Wednesday, September 15 at 8 pm.
But after the show tomorrow night comes the event I’m most excited to talk to you about and guess what? YOU’RE ALL INVITED!!!
Back in February I hosted an event for Lakay Pam which aimed to raise money for Haiti. The event was more successful than we could have ever imagined, raising over $60,000 for the children of Haiti. In fact it went so well we are going to do it again tomorrow night…
