Fashion Week NYC; Moms On A Mission

Fashion Week NYC; Moms On A Mission

Click on the photo to see Lisa Rinna dance down the runway and the end of the show.

Last night I got to live out my fantasy of attending a New York Fashion Week show that combined fashion with my passion for causes that benefit mothers and children.  The Strut,  Moms with a Mission fashion show showcased supermoms instead of supermodels. Women like Devi Thomas, the director of the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign,  Chrysula Winegar of “When You Wake Up A Mother, You Wake Up The World”Holly Pavlika of Momentum.bigfuel.com, and the founders of Strut Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein all walked the runway with celebrity mom Lisa Rinna.  I joined World Moms Blog founder Jennifer Burden and fellow World Moms Blog Contributer Maman Aya to watch the show, and enjoy the electric atmosphere. We loved the fantastic people watching inside the tents at Lincoln Center, and a fabulous after party at the swanky Empire hotel.

I may not be walking down the catwalk this week but I am a Mom on a Mission myself, working with The Mission List  on our 10 Days 10 Lives campaign for Water.org.  We are working to raise awareness and bring clean drinking water and the dignity of sanitation to women and children around the world.

You can help by spreading the word , donating to our fundraiser ,  start your own fundraiser,  or just learning more about the water crisis. Together we can make a difference.

 Just $25 brings clean water for life to one person, and our goal by the end of our ten days is to provide clean water to at least ten people. I’d love for you to join me.

Now I need to track down the leather leggings one of the models walked down the runway in! I am obsessed!
