Anyone can do their part for charity. In fact, fashion shows which have the usual models showcasing the latest wardrobe design ideas from noted designers today is a good way to put everything in perspective.
Such was the intent of a glamorous fashion show that was held in London, featuring top catwalk models, the same agency that handles Kate Moss. For their efforts, they were able to raise more than £3,000 for charity.
Models1 successfully modeled for a cause using garments made by Hollywood Collections, a fashion store in Barnt Green and accessories from Solihull boutique Le Scarpe in the glitzy bash at Hogarths Hotel in Solihull. The funds raised will be given to Cancer Research UK and the Love Care Charity in Chennai as organized by hotel owner, Helena Hogarth.
“This £3,000 will go towards making this orphanage as comfortable as possible for the orphans and giving them a better chance in life. I’d like to thank all who took part and helped support these two amazing charities.”
At these trying times, such an amount is modest enough for a worthy cause. Especially now that the holiday season is fast approaching, it would be nice to see such efforts which is sure to grow in the next couple of weeks, regardless if hard times are here. Besides, charity is about giving what you can and not really about the amount you are able to give.
