Donna Karan Hearts Haiti

I admit, the title is so cheesy it practically hurts my eyes and mind, but I needed to put quite a bit of information in the shortest line possible, so this is the one I managed to come up with. Sorry for being predictable and resulting a sentence to suit the jargon of a 16-year old. I am Russian, my English vocabulary is limited at times.

Today was supposed to be the day for my Donna Karan: Part I story. I knew some of you were looking forward to that one. And then I’ve discovered something I wasn’t aware of and since the time is running out, I needed to reschedule the rest of the week and put this post up asap. To give everyone a chance to make a difference.

I was reading the news on Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Foundation website when I heard of the Fashion For Haiti: One Million Hearts collaboration launched a week ago to support the Haitian artisans and help them rebuild their lives.

Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, Carolina Herrera, Elie Tahari and Narciso Rodriguez were among nearly 150 designers who put their personal touch on locally-crafted Haitian papier mâché hearts donated by DKNY.

The heart are currently available on eBay with the auction ending on 2 May, so you still have a chance to bid and win one of them. Somewhere inside my mind I feel that Donna herself would be much happier with my writing about this auction than trying to be her biographer, so here I am, prioritising and sharing the news that really matters.

  5. Wow, so nice! Thanks for sharing it! It makes a difference, I loved knowing that and I didn't know, so, once more thanks! It's so nice when people help others. Especially being famous, they can reach more people. Thumbs up to the ones who are helping using their names and expertise!

  6. Those hearts are nice and what a great cause. I think it was last year when Adriana Lima did a photoshoot for her in Haiti. People gave Donna so much slack for using the locals in the ads (I think it's a question of whether they got paid or not). Donna has nothing but love for that area and is only trying to help. I swear people twist the most positive of things people try and do.

  9. Based on experts, software delegating India is a major best decision.
