It was a clothing for a cause affair as Monsoon Children held its Giving the Gift of Warmth charity event which aids in providing winter clothing to keep Atlanta’s less fortunate children warm during the winter. This charity event benefits the Children’s Restoration Network, which is a non-profit agency that has been assisting Atlanta’s homeless children and mothers since 1993. The Children’s Restoration Network (CRN) conducts programs and special events to provide a broad range of positive experiences for over 4,000 children across more than 130 shelters and group homes in 20 countries each year.
Here’s an alarming fact: Did you know that one in 45 children experience homelessness in America each year? And even more alarming is the fact that more than 45,500 Georgia children are homeless over the course of a year.
The Giving the Gift of Warmth charity event was held at the Monsoon Children’s store located in Phipps Plaza in Atlanta, and I must say that if you’ve never been to Monsoon before you must make it a point to visit this fabulous store. They carry the latest in European fashions featuring stylish children’s clothing as well as a wide variety of accessories for adults including bags, purses, jewelry, belts, hats, scarves, and a host of other chic curiosities. During the event, guests enjoyed live music, sweet treats, sips, and discounted shopping throughout the evening. Patrons also brought in their gently used and new winter clothing to donate to this worthy cause.
What an amazing night! I had such a wonderful time. It is such a great feeling knowing that children will be warm this winter because of the compassion and generosity of organizations and businesses such as The Children’s Restoration Network and Monsoon Children, and I’m honored to have participated in such a worthwhile endeavor. Thank you Tiffani for the invite; and to Rebecca and the fabulous Monsoon Children staff for being such gracious hosts during this amazing event.
