June 22, 2009: Fashion gives back

Mojito, rum, peartini many drinks to choose from, so little time. The event is indeed coming up rather quickly. June 22nd is the date to remember. What event you ask? Fashion Gives Back presented by History Starts Now, of course! History Starts Now is a New York based non for profit organisation which focuses on raising awareness on child sex trafficking. Did you know that right now children are being sold in America, some of them being as young as 1 year old? In New York alone, 10, 000 children are abducted, sold and abused in the sex industry. Stunned? You should be. Rachael and Kristina, the founders of HSN, want you to know that: at this moment you have the power to make history. Why not help raise funds to end child trafficking and give a child their childhood back?

Fashion Gives Back is a one-night Fashion Show Benefit. Although the designer's identity shall remain a secret until the music starts, we thought you should know- scoop- his, or her, duds are being sold for thousands of dollars (retail price) as we speak! The event will be held at the Stone Rose lounge in the Time Warner building in NYC. The marble table, leather couches and dim lighting space was donated for the event. Kudos, Stone Rose!

Then, sitting by the lounges large window overlooking Central Park Rachael said, "but I love wine..." So one thing is certain: there will be wine but to find out which other drinks made the cut you'll have to come party with us for a good cause. And when the corks stop popping you'll remember HSN's motto: History starts now with you and me. Purchase tickets here.

Just a thought...
