A message from the kids

Spent the day in Pune at various Akanksha schools in a pair of hand painted Bata Keds and bangles that the kids handcrafted and donated to the U.P. The kids will be eagerly checking the site to see the funds box going up tomorrow so let's pull together some dollars for them, shall we?

Eithne tagged this Best, hands down

The artist in me was going to adore the shoes and the bracelets even more so... but - I think i've got something in my eye, too ;-) THIS is what fashion was supposed to be from the start, not fashion weeks or models or a bunch of unwearable and often ugly stuff that wants to pass off as art, as it doesn't elevate the human spirit in any way and it most certainly does not better the human condition. I'll most probably never be able to afford anything designer in my entire life, but after seeing these kids who only want to stay in school, who would want to? Best of luck with those really big donations, i hope you get loads :-)

Bronwyn tagged this Loving the set-up

Hey Sheena! Oh my goodness! So cute! Those children are trult beautiful. BTW, love the sneakers you are wearing.

Dee tagged this AWESOME

I think this is the best yet! My absolute favorite! If you make a calendar of all of your outfits to sell for donations, when this is over, this should be the cover.
