Celebrating fashion while Fighting Hunger and Poverty

Posted on May 22, 2014 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (61)
Hello My Fashion Friends!

It's always great to come back and share more things with you. The latest and greatest fashion idea happened recently in March where we decided to throw a party/celebration for our supporters benefiting the women and girls we work with! These are females from impoverished backgrounds who are struggling to make ends meet. Interestingly enough these women have so many talents and through their works of  art are slowly coming out of poverty and are able to afford a decent meal.

 The International Women's Day Celebration was a success. We had numerous sponsors.Guest speakers included Springfield Rescue Mission, Barefoot Books, Avon, Origami Owl and two young talented girls who spoke to the public on the empowerment of girls. We entertained our guests with African dancers,Maggie The Clown, a Domm Dee Photography and the highlight of the day: a Fashion Show in colorful designs. 

All I can say is,If you've missed the first one then make an effort not to  miss the next one. From the mouth of our guests: "It was a fun event", "Wow! I've never seen a dance with spears" "The food was good"," I would definitely do this again!", "When is the next one?" So in response to an overwhelming response we would like to start surveying people to see how many people would be willing to attend our next event in Springfield,MA. Will you be our guest, next sponsor or guest speaker? Do you have talent to share or a product that stands out? Are you a celebrity trying to do some charity work and would love to join forces with us for our next event? Feel free to drop us some feedback on this blog or go to our Contact Us page and leave us some valuable information so we can get back in touch with you. Until then, enjoy the weather, stay in fashion and come back to our blog periodically! We love having you here. Thanks for joining the Afri(K)que blog.

Fashionably Yours,
