So, we’ve decided we’d give in to Throwback Thursday specifically because we couldn’t let the opportunity go to share with our fans the AMAZINGNESS that is the Style Saves Foundation.
What is the Style Saves Foundation you ask?
Essentially, Style Saves is a non-profit organization that raises funds with the support of other non-profit organizations, stylists, designers, and retail stores in the area to supply underprivileged children with event based clothing through various social and fashion-focused events. Style Saves strives to provide underprivileged students with clothing, shoes, and accessories for the new school year. In the merging of local designers, stylists, boutiques, and retailers a truly epic and heart warming event took place, and the ISHINE365 team was there to be a part of it.
The ISHINE365 staff came together and volunteered at the Style Saves event that took place at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Downtown Miami August 14, 2014.Our reward for participating in such an amazing event? – definitely the ecstatic look on the students’ faces when they entered the auditorium. What was once a huge and empty auditorium was now a mega back-to-school event like no other. Not only were there outfit and accessory stations all around; from uniform and school wear, to there were also stations for informing students how to cope and react to bullying at school, stations giving away healthy snacks of cold-pressed juices and smoothies, a runway for the kids to show off their new outfits throughout the entire event, and even an eye exam station sponsored by VisionWorks giving eye sight exams and reading lenses! Basically, the event was a field day for the kids, parents, and all involved.
We all know we’re guilty of taking what we have for granted, but what many people don’t know is how much better these things are when we get to share them with those less fortunate. We wanted to share our amazing experience at the Style Saves event with our fans to raise awareness for these underprivileged kids who aren’t as lucky as the most of us are. ISHINE365 is ever so grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing cause that brings smiles to hundreds of kids’ faces, and we’re are excited to see what this ever-growing fundraiser has in store for us next year!
Be the positive change you wish to see in the world and show your support for the Style Saves Foundation by donating, participating, or even spreading the word. Check out the Style Saves event website at http://stylesaves.org for more information and be sure to follow them on Instagram @StyleSaves.
XOXO, ISHINE365 FAMILY…..
