Created by two women, one who was born and raised in Haiti and the other an American who married a Haitian, they’re working to change the way the world sees Haiti and to replace some of the negative news with some positive changes. That’s something I’m proud to help support.

Fashion Project: Shop to Support Cancer Patients

Cancer. It’s a scary word, and it seems like everyone has been touched by it — either personally, or through a family member or friend.
