Help me raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis
I was nominated by a good friend as an Honoree for this year’s Top of the Triangle
program. I’ve accepted this nomination, and in that, have committed to raising at least
$2500 for the CF Foundation.
I’m pleased to say that 90% of their funds go directly to research, education, and support for patients!
I actually didn’t know much about CF prior to early-September. My friend who nominated me has CF in her extended family, which was motivation enough for me. Then I met this cutie pie, Maddie, and the rest of the Paige family. Maddie is 4 1/2, and has CF. When I met her, I think we kind of “clicked”… I gave her paper so she could draw. She also showed me how she can write her and her big brother’s (Macklin) name. Now I want to raise the funds on behalf of Maddie.
Some different and creative ways YOU can help me…
- You can go to my Triangle’s Finest page and make an online donation, be a sponsor, and/or buy tickets for the Finale event. More detailed information on sponsorship can be found HERE. The Finale event is at the American Institute of Architects, on November 20th.
- And the creative!! BIDDING HAS BEGUN on my online auction of Art, Jewelry, Clothing, Healing Arts and Literary Arts. Bidding ends in 2 weeks. http://www.biddingowl.com/KimKCFFAuction
Please share these with your family and friends. Donations can be from anyone, anywhere!
And,YES, most of the auction items can be shipped, and for very little.
I am thrilled an honored to be designing two looks — one Couture, and one Ready-to-Wear — for Couture for a Cause this year.
Each designer has a nonprofit they get inspiration from, and then create two looks to represent that nonprofit. The pieces are auctioned off to the highest bidder, and go home with that person right away! The money raised goes to Activate Good, who serves the community by gathering volunteers to work with various nonprofit organizations in the Triangle area.
This year, I will be highlighting Triangle Family Services. They have been around for 77 years; originally established after wartime to help soldiers get home to their families. Currently, TFS serves people of the Triangle area find financial security, emergency housing, counseling of all sorts, and safety for themselves or their family. Please read up on their website.
I visited their office today, and have an immense amount of respect for them.
I am THRILLED that the amazing, exuberant Diana Cameron McQueen will be modeling these looks for me!!!
You can support this event by purchasing tickets for the live auction, and also participating in the silent auction! Our designs will be judged by three people on a panel that night. ALSO, there’s an audience/people’s choice award; so I’d love it if you attended and voted for me!! The prize is having an online portfolio designed and hosted for a year. I’d really love that!!
