Support my @DaretoWearLove Challenge #Africa #dtwl

Dare to Wear Love celebrates the work of Canada’s fashion community and performing artists. It also raises funds and awareness for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which puts money into grassroots organizations in Africa to fight the AIDS pandemic.

I’ve been taking part in the Dare to Wear Challenge, and with just one week left, I’m so close to my goal!

I’ve done the challenge twice before and even walked the runway.

To show you how amazing it was, I’ve attached a video from the last event. Don’t blink or you’ll miss me (1:50 into the video)!

I’m proud to continue supporting this worthy fundraiser, and I hope you will too. Find out how you can get tickets to the show here.

If you’d like to support me, you can donate by going to this linkNo amount is too small, and every dollar is greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your support.

Support Fashion and Fight Aids with @DaretoWearLove #Africa

Dare to Wear Love celebrates the work of Canada’s fashion community and performing artists. It also raises funds and awareness for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which puts money into grassroots organizations in Africa to fight the AIDS pandemic.


From today until April 15th, I’ll be raising money for the Dare to Wear Challenge by embracing my Canadian style and wearing Canadian.

I’ve done the challenge twice before and even won a chance to walk the runway! I’m proud to continue supporting this worthy fundraiser, which concludes with the Dare to Wear Love Gala on May 12, 2017. At this prestigious event, Canada’s top fashion designers create one-of-a-kind ensembles from six yards of African fabric. These designs are modelled at the gala by supermodels, dancers, musicians, and other celebrities, as well as winners of the Dare to Wear Love Challenge.

Find out how you can get tickets to the show here.

Below are a few pictures from previous years when I did the challenge. If you’d like to support this incredible cause and potentially win an opportunity to walk the runway, take the challenge!

If, instead, you’d like to donate to my efforts, I’d be SO grateful! You’ll also discover my real name when you do. 😉

You can donate by going to this link. No amount is too small, and every dollar is greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your support.

Over the past weeks, I’ve been raising money for the Dare to Wear Challenge by embracing my Canadian style and wearing Canadian. The Challenge ends tomorrow and I’m SO close to my $500 goal. If you’d like to donate, you can do it via this link.

UPDATE: March 7th: Thanks to the generosity of all my contributors, I exceeded my goal! My appreciation to everyone who donated. xox
