Sisters on the Runway at UMass Amherst
Sisters on the Runway is a national organization in the United States that supports and raises awareness in the fight against domestic violence. Sincerely Sweet Boutique sponsors Sisters on the Runway at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst's annual benefit fashion show from which all proceeds are donated directly to Safe Passage, a local domestic violence shelter in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Walter Johnson High School Annual Charity Fashion Show
Located in the Washington D.C. area, a group of dedicated students have taken on hosting a fashion show to benefit a charity of their choice. Due to the tragic death of two recent Walter Johnson graduates, 100% of proceeds have gone to the Stone and Holt Weeks Foundation, created to honor the graduates' incredible dedication to helping others. Funds raised from this charity fashion show are donated to Habitat for Humanity in the name of Stone and Holt.
We sponsor the annual benefit gala organized by NYU ACE. Asian Cultural Expressions (ACE) is NYU’s largest and longest running student-run fashion and cultural benefit gala fusing artistic talent and philanthropic spirit. Recognized by NYC’s Office of the Mayor as a Club of Distinction for our accomplishments in expanding cultural diversity, ACE presents a colorful fashion and cultural masterpiece that showcases the aesthetic beauty and fosters the altruistic nature of philanthropy. ACE continues to enrich the relationship between culture and art on the runway while supporting the community through charity offstage. This year, they are holding their charity benefit gala for Shining Hope for Communities, an organization dedicated to providing schools and education for impoverished girls in Kenya.
Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) combats gender inequality and extreme poverty in urban slums in Kenya by linking tuition free schools for girls to holistic services for all. To SHOFCO, schools are a portal for large scale social change and can ultimately transform the face of urban poverty while creating tomorrow’s leaders. Together with Show of Force: Social Good, an organization that harnesses the power of storytelling to educate people to take action and create change, we hope that ACE can help call attention to SHOFCO’s initiatives and inspire NYU students to take action.
Lighthouse is a non-profit organization that relies on donations and fundraising events to keep this community alive and serving young adults with special needs all over Orange County. The specific purpose of this foundation is to provide physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual support to individuals with special needs.
Reading to Kids
Reading to Kids is a grassroots organization dedicated to inspiring underserved children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for success in the future. To this end, Reading to Kids gathers on average 794 children and 319 volunteers at reading clubs on the second Saturday of every month at seven Los Angeles elementary schools.
At the monthly reading clubs, pairs of volunteers read aloud to small groups of children, while their parents receive training on how to encourage their children to read at home. Kids, parents, teachers, and school libraries receive book donations at the end of the Reading Clubs. These are important donations, as 60 percent of low-income homes do not have age-appropriate reading materials for children.
Since its inception in 1999, Reading to Kids has given more than 104,245 prize books to children who attend the reading clubs, donated more than 18,710 hardcover books to school libraries, and our volunteers have spent over 120,363 hours reading to kids.
