Awarding Fashion-Forward Giving

17 06 2009

On Thursday, 6/18, Fashion Delivers will host its second annual “Pay It Forward” event and present five awards to individuals within the fashion community who’ve leveraged their influence to make a positive impact on their communities. Mr. Fine himself, LL Cool J, will host the event and the band Tamarama will perform.

6409592_heart-logoStarted as a post-Katrina relief effort, the mission of Fashion Delivers Charitable Foundation is “to unify the men’s and women’s apparel and home industries to donate new product in order to aid victims of disasters and individuals in need.” Since it’s founding in 2006, the foundation has distributed over $30 million dollars in donations to those in need, both in the United States and across the globe.

The foundation hopes that “Pay It Forward” encourages others in the fashion industry to embrace their charitable side. Tomorrow night’s honorees include:

Chloe Jo Berman – GirlieGirl Army

Sally Fowler and Jessica Moment – Philanthropist Boutique

Linda Loudermilk – Linda Loudermilk, Inc.

Frankie Rodriguez – I/Denti/Tee

Wes Card – Jones Apparel Group, CEO

If you’re in NYC, there may still be tickets are the door for $75. Click here for event details. For each ticket sold, Earnest Sewn will donate a pair of jeans to Fashion Delivers’ California Relief Campaign. The California Relief Campaign, a partnership with K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distressed Situations), will provide donations of new items to homeless individuals and families across California.

There were a couple of mentions of this event on Twitter, so I’m looking forward to hearing a great report on the evening! P.S. If you want to read my profile on Philanthropist Boutique, click here!

Oh, and just for good measure…here’s LL Cool J looking very scrumptious! I almost forgot how gorgeous he was! Shame on me…

Ladies Love Cool James!
