Helping Haiti

This doesn't really have anything to do with style but I feel that with what's happened, its necessary to do all we can, whenever wherever.  I helped a fellow stylist put together a charity event to benefit our Haitian brothers and sisters.  It was super last minute.  Like everything had to come together within a couple of days to be ready by yesterday.  It was at a bar with silent auction for donated art pieces.
I'm pleased to say that with the given situation, we were able to raise about $5000! Ten of my photos got purchased!  One of them even sold for 5x more than the starting bid!  This is monumental b/c my art was part of the monetary contribution, but also b/c this was the first time I had shown my artwork publicly in New York.  
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us, and more importantly support Haiti by bidding and making donations.  There will be an ongoing art auction on facebook as Haiti's need for aid will be ongoing. 

Happy MLK day!
