SANA MODELS SHOW- The Maseno Project
I am very happy to invite all our bloggers to join me at a very special fashion show and auction - June 1, 2008 at Noon SL time, a charity fashion show at the lovely KJAZZ Club.
I met Abbie Reinard (model, writer and activist) and she told me about The Maseno Project, in a small village 20 miles west of Maseno, just north of the lakeside city, Kisumu, in Western Kenya where due to AIDS pandemic, a lot of children have been orphaned and they have no relatives or any means of support to even meet their basic necessities of food, clothing, shelter and education. The Maseno Project is an intimate charity whereby people's donations make significant impact on particular lives.
This is a self-funded integrated community based project to establish education bursary plans for orphans, youth, the destitute and special cases such as the blind, deaf and the lame. And provide health care for the above groups. The centre has one ongoing activity early childhood education program which has 30 children, mainly orphans.
The idea of the show started when Abbie met Keely LeFavre (supermodel, blogger and businesswoman) during a modeling contest and this idea of holding a charity show for the children of Maseno in SL came eventually as they went on from becoming contestants to best friends. Keely LeFavre and Sana Models are presenting this charity fashion show inorder to raise funds for these orphaned children.
The show will consist of 6 of the hottest SL models showing creations from 6 amazing SL Designers. Immediately after the show, an auction will take place for one outfit from each designer. All donations and proceeds will go directly to the Maseno Project.
The show promises to be something truly special and has attracted designers who rank among the most elite in Second Life's fabulously thriving digital fashion industry: Callie Cline (Callifornia), Giana Paine (GiGi couture) Sissy Pessoa (BAIASTICE), Bianca Foulon (biancaF.), Stiletto Moody (Stiletto Moody Shoes) and Omnia Oh (Beauty Avatar). The auction at the conclusion of the show will include 4 full outfits including skin and shoes. These outfits will be only one of a kind!
