Celebrating fashion while Fighting Hunger and Poverty

Hello My Fashion Friends!

It's always great to come back and share more things with you. The latest and greatest fashion idea happened recently in March where we decided to throw a party/celebration for our supporters benefiting the women and girls we work with! These are females from impoverished backgrounds who are struggling to make ends meet. Interestingly enough these women have so many talents and through their works of  art are slowly coming out of poverty and are able to afford a decent meal.

 The International Women's Day Celebration was a success. We had numerous sponsors.Guest speakers included Springfield Rescue Mission, Barefoot Books, Avon, Origami Owl and two young talented girls who spoke to the public on the empowerment of girls. We entertained our guests with African dancers,Maggie The Clown, a Domm Dee Photography and the highlight of the day: a Fashion Show in colorful designs. 

All I can say is,If you've missed the first one then make an effort not to  miss the next one. From the mouth of our guests: "It was a fun event", "Wow! I've never seen a dance with spears" "The food was good"," I would definitely do this again!", "When is the next one?" So in response to an overwhelming response we would like to start surveying people to see how many people would be willing to attend our next event in Springfield,MA. Will you be our guest, next sponsor or guest speaker? Do you have talent to share or a product that stands out? Are you a celebrity trying to do some charity work and would love to join forces with us for our next event? Feel free to drop us some feedback on this blog or go to our Contact Us page and leave us some valuable information so we can get back in touch with you. Until then, enjoy the weather, stay in fashion and come back to our blog periodically! We love having you here. Thanks for joining the Afri(K)que blog.

Fashionably Yours,

Thanks Nanci! For your wonderful feedback about our International Women's Day celebration in March. We will definitely add you to our list of guests for our next event. Recycled paper bracelet making? I think you got my attention on that one, that's a talent I haven't seen yet! I will get in touch with you personally to see how we can coordinate that with our other activities. Of course, a child who knows how to sing will be a big asset!That's a Yes! Twice!

We all fight over what the label 'feminism' means but for me it's about empowerment. It's not about being more powerful than men - it's about having equal rights with protection, support, justice. It's about very basic things. It's not a badge like a fashion item.

I think to be a good online marketer may be the most difficult thing to do is a blogger, you must have significant traffic to get the possible client and you also have to make your own customers, because simply I’ve never made a single sale with my first website.

fashion celebrating is a good idea, most of the fashion house celebrating when they are lunching some new and fashionable cloths. in fact they are organizing kind of fashion show which can increase popularity of the fashion house.

Women empowering other women are probably the best thing that can happen in this world full of crab-minded people. But of course it would be best if it is not just women empowering each other right? I love how people are celebrating women empowerment. Back in the days when women are discriminated just because people think they cannot do much things like men can do just because people believed they are frail and weak, women learned to fight for themselves and over-turn that belief. This celebration clearly indicates how women became successful in raising their flags feminine yet powerful flag in the society.
