Rachel Roy’s Birthday Wish Comes True!

This year, designer Rachel Roy decided to skip her birthday on January 15th and start a birthday campaign through Charity Water instead.  Having witnessed first hand the effects and hardships created by lack of unsafe drinking water, Rachel’s goal was to raise $15,000 by March 15th.  If successful, she would help 750 people, 150 families and 3 communities receive clean water.

It’s pretty amazing Rachel was able to give up a birthday in exchange for helping so many.  What’s even better is today is January 30th, and she’s already exceeded her goal!  She’s currently at $15,839, and there is still well over a month of donating to be done.   No donation is too small (or big), the more money she raises the higher the count of people helped.  Currently, she’s served 791 people!

We donated. Thank you Rachel for letting us be apart of your birthday! Even if it is technically skipped.

Haiti Earthquake Relief: How You Can Help

As most of you know by now, Haiti needs our help after Tuesday’s devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake.

Between the Red Cross and Charity Water, here’s some easy ways you can get involved:

  • Donate Money
  • Donate Blood
  • Donate Items
  • Donate Your Time
  • Time Spread the Word

I’m participating in all of the above between these two organizations.  If I can do all five, consider trying to do one.  I never want to sound preachy but every little bit helps and now is the time to unite and make a difference.

The Red Cross:

Text “Haiti” to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross.  The donation will appear on your cell phone bill. They are also

Party for a Cause – Do You Really Need More Stuff?

Take a queue from Scott Harrison (Founder of charity: water) and Sean Parker (Napster Co-Founder, Founding President of Facebook, Chairman and Co-Founder of Causes) and consider asking your friends to donate to a worthy cause instead of gifts.


Founded by Scott Harrison, charity: water is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people globally. He launched this project on his birthday in September 2006, and asked guests to donate $15 instead of giving him presents.  That evening, Scott raised $15,000, and charity: water was born. It’s been a recurring event ever since.  This birthday campaign has become such a success, between Scott’s birthday and those who followed suit, they were able to raise $965,000.

In celebration of his birthday, Sean Parker threw a benefit for Malaria No More, the non-profit organization dedicated to ending malaria deaths, by asking for donations instead of gifts.

Let’s help Sean reach his goal of $50,000 by donating at www.facebook.com/malarianomore, and to learn more about the cause visit malarianomore.org.

On a beauty note, Sean has really good taste in skin care, sporting Molton Brown’s Naran Ji Fine Liquid Hand Wash and Soothing Hand Lotion in his guest bathroom.  A celebrity studded birthday and I’m taking pictures of his hand soap…go figure!

What is Charity Water?

Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in six of us.

Charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. They give 100% of the money raised to direct project costs, funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need. Just $20 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 years.

Fashion’s Night Out – NYC

On September 10th, Anna Wintour’s plan to save the fashion industry came to life when NYC gathered for Fashion’s Night Out.  Every retailer from all five boroughs was encouraged to join in the celebration.  Anna Wintour affirmed  her commitment to the boroughs involvement by pledging to kick off the evening at Macy’s in Queens, alongside Michael Kors.  With over 700 retailers participating in the festivities, I had a whole lot of invitations with no idea what to expect or how to pace the night.
