When I was a volunteer at Children's Hospital I could never walk through the cancer ward without tearing up; it was absolutely heart wrenching. A few years ago, a friend of mine was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. Yesterday, I learned that a classmate of my boyfriend had passed away -- yet another victim of this horrible disease. It's a tragedy when it affects anyone, but it seems like its increasing victims are so young. People who haven't even really lived yet, are losing their lives to it. I hate the stupid disease and I know everyone else out there does too. Can someone please find a cure already?
I was sent info on this amazing initiative yesterday: 22 Ways to Say Black. Donna Karan, Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy, Armani, Diane von Furstenberg, among others, designed 22 custom little black dresses adorned with sparkling Swarovski Elements. The dresses will be auctioned at a glamorous event in New York at Philips de Pury on September 20th with 100% of the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society and La Ligue Contre le Cancer in France. I've posted a video about the campaign below, and of course, my favourite dresses up for auction.
