Hope the weekend was great for you! I had a great weekend, catching up with friend's and learned a thing or two about the radio (more on that in the next post).
Any readers who live the NYC area, please come out this Thursday NYSOM (New York State Of Mind) Hip Hop Fashion show/clothing drive at Covenant House. Covenant House is the largest privately funded agency in the USA that offers free 24/7 crisis care and on-going support for homeless kids and teenagers. The teens of Covenant House will model their favorite hip hop/R&B artists at the fashion show. I will be volunteering backstage and donating clothes as well. I'm excited to help out at this event as I wanted to do more charity work this year.
There are a lot of charity fashion shows that donate proceeds to children where they would have models or celebrities appear in it in it, there is little or no interaction with the children. I find it refreshing to see an two organizations hold a fashion show where the children can participate in, it helps their self confidence, and gives them an creative outlet during hard times.
New York State of Mind assists and develops opportunities for community outreach programs such as food pantries and soup kitchens that benefits the
homeless, unemployed and the working poor.
