It's amazing to realize that sometimes it's the non-Filipinos who love and try to understand this country more.
I'm quite honored to talk about this. Actually, I'm very very happy that this event is going to happen. I'm proud to share this and I hope that people will take the initiative to share their blessings for this cause.
The Caridade Group is a modeling agency composed of international models based here in Manila. Along with the Philippine Red Cross, the group has organized an event to somehow repay the hospitality that the Filipinos have openly shared to them. It is in this way that they intend to say their thanks to the country that has a special place in their life. The event entitled "Red Runway" was created to raise funds to help the living conditions of a less fortunate community.
The event aims to help and sponsor a feeding program for malnourished children in Muntinlupa. Other than this, they are partnering with Kabisig Ng Kalahi in a community based program to feed children a hot meal a day for six months. To further support their plans, mothers will be taught how they can manage and improve their family's lifestyle, while also teaching them how prepare cheap and nutritious meals.
As shared to me by Julia Sniegowski, one of the models and organizers of the event, "We are trying to give back to the community as we feel ingratiated by the hospitality and welcome shown to us by Filipinos." For these foreign models, it's part of their job to constantly travel to look for modeling gigs that they can work at. I sincerely appreciate that they decided to stay and have decided to take the time and use their efforts to help the less fortunate in their own way.
As a main attraction for the event, 20 international models will fly in and will walk the runway clothed in Folded & Hung. It's an event you wouldn't want to miss since well known models like Mariana Henud, Julia Sniekowski, Janet Emmrich, Akihiro Sato and Hideo Muraoka will all be attending and supporting the cause. A number of members from the fashion community are also expected to be present.
The event will be held on September 29, 2011 at 8 in the evening. The venue will be at 7th High, Bonifacio Highstreet. Ticket prices are at 1,200, inclusive of the open bar and food. They also have a great line-up of DJ's to jumpstart the party after the fashion show.
