One World Foundation, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
The One World Foundation (http://www.oneworld-foundation.org) debut was fondly received at New York Fashion Week amongst fashion industry personalities and diverse celebrities.
A charitable organization dedicated to providing education and opportunity for children throughout the developing world, has partnered with the Baan Unrak Children’s Village of Thailand.
During this month, One World Foundation has initiated a bi-coastal launch to unveil their mission in New York and Los Angeles.
“Our first initiative to launch during Fashion Week was organically related to the manufacturing of the Baan Unrak Conscious Collection.” Said Stephanie Drapeau, Co-Founder of One World Foundation. “We are extremely grateful for the response and support within the fashion and entertainment community, for this reason we are now getting ready for our participation at the GBK celebrity/charity suites in Los Angeles on September 21st and 22nd during the Emmy Awards Festivities.”
At the New York event the following personalities and entertainers graciously agreed to be a supporter of the One World Foundation and to be listed as a part of their circle of friends; Lisa Searl, Glamo, David Alan, Basche, Elle McLemore, India De Beaufort, Paul Sparks, Jennifer Ashton, Olivia Culpo (Miss USA), Leila Lopes (Miss Universe), Neil Haskell, Jana Kramer, Carla Facciolo, Daymond John, Erin Cummings, Toni Trucks, Gloria Govan, Erin Wilhelmi, Jess Zaino, Navid Neganhan and Erica Mena.
Baan Unrak, a “children’s home” and safe haven, began more than two decades ago when founder Did Ananda Devamala found and began to care for an abandoned child in the jungle bordering Myanmar and Thailand. Today Baan Unrak provides shelter, food, education, and a warm and loving home to nearly 150 children. In a region where children and teenagers are at great risk for abuse and victimization through human trafficking, Baan Unrak provides not only safety, but opportunity through education as well.
