What an honor this is!! I have been asked to create a few bags for an upcoming fall fundraiser in Raleigh called Couture for Cause - which will bring together local non-profits, volunteers, and designers for a night of fashion, all with the purpose of raising awareness of ME3. ME3 encourages people to get involved in their community & helps them find volunteer opportunities. Their vision and mission -
ME³ stands for Motivate, Educate, Empower, and Engage. We envision a world in which every individual realizes
and exercises his or her potential to make a difference in the community. Through outreach, education, and
service, we promote volunteerism and helping others. Our goal is to help create a permanent culture of caring
and community involvement in North Carolina and beyond.
They are still looking for designers to participate, so go here to download your application. If you are a new and young designer, this is a fabulous way to get your name out!! So many from the fashion industry in and around Raleigh will be there - an opportunity to good to miss:)
