sorry for the lack of updates lately, but i've been busy working on a new project. here's more info and just as a warning, this won't be your usual fashion inspiration blog post. ;)
I have decided to participate in a project with my friend Elaini. She is a fashion blogger on Misselainious.com (you would lover her style!) and has raised thousands of dollars for kids in India through Warm Blankets Orphan Care- such an inspiration! This holiday season, she has asked me to participate in a 12 Days of Christmas project. The challenge for me will be to style a photo shoot inspired by day 2- two turtle doves which will be posted on her blog in about a week. I had SO much fun during the shoot and I can't wait to share it with you!
With this challenge, my goal is to raise $1000 before the end of the year to donate to Warm Blankets Orphan Care. This is an organization Chico & I really care about. We met the founder, Craig, about a year ago and heard some of the most incredible stories about the kids (ask me about them sometime!).
I attached a few photos of the kids we will be helping. Warm Blankets rescues these orphans from life on the streets or worse, sex trafficking. Your donation helps put these adorable kids in loving Church Orphan Homes where they are cared and provided for. By helping give these children a safe environment, you not only save their lives but you help them to thrive. With your support, they will be clothed, fed, given an education, and most importantly loved. Your donation goes to not just changing these precious lives but also invests in helping to stop the cycle of poverty in this country.
How do you donate? Head over to Elaini's blog and click "Give Now" in the right hand corner. Please put "Alyssa DiCicco" in the comments section so my progress is tracked. All donations are made through a secure page & are tax deductible. Please know that 100% goes to the children- pretty rad. Checks can be sent to this address but please make sure to mark my name on the bottom of the check as well as "12 Days Project".
