Friday, April 20th~
I'm putting together my costume for the 1920's gala I'm attending next weekend. It's to benefit one of my favorite charities, Links of Hope Network. Let me tell you a little bit about them and I think you'll think they're awesome too.
Links of Hope Network works to equip rural, marginalized women with free jewelry making training, tools, and raw materials. They have expanded their training to include other handcrafted goods by working closely with male and female deaf students in Honduras and supporting deaf artisans in Kenya. They provide practical skills that help economically disadvantaged artisans and deaf students earn a sustainable income with dignity and respect. It's the whole don't give a man a fish, teach him how to fish principle.
If you are in the Tampa Bay area, consider this post a personal invitation to attend their gala next week. It's being held at the beautiful Rutland Farley Estate. The tickets are very inexpensive and there are going to be some amazing auction items to bid on. (I'll post the piece I'm donating soon.) Click here to go to their website and read more about the gala and purchase tickets. Costumes are optional. We've got great live music lined up (including my hubby's band!) and Buffalo Girl Vintage is going to have models in period costumes strolling through the event.
So if you are available on the evening of April 28th, please consider coming and supporting this worthy, worthy cause!
